“There is a bear in the woods. For some people, the bear is easy to see. Others don’t see it at all. Some people say the bear is tame. Others say it’s vicious and dangerous. Since no one can really be sure who’s right, isn’t it smart to be as strong as the bear? If there is a bear.” -1984 Reagan Campaign Ad
Eight months ago, when we first started the Finest Bagels Blog, I wrote an article expressing my concern for what I called then-Candidate Trump’s “Alarming Russian Blind Spot.” Since that article was published, I guess you could say some things have changed. Trump is now in the White House, Putin and the Russian Federation have been accused of helping to influence the election in favor of Trump, and Congress can’t seem to agree on how to respond (but, you know…what else is new).
In keeping with the mission of FBB to provide well researched informative material, We are happy to announce that we will be publishing a series of articles outlining the history of Russia since the end of the Cold War and providing an analysis of their supposed motives and long term foreign policy goals. It is our hope that these articles will help to provide some context to the events taking place today and leave you feeling better informed about the ongoing debates.
Be sure to check back soon for our first post.
