HOUR THREE (Photo: Henry Kissinger with Vladimir Putin and translator, Moscow, 2016) Henry Kissinger Goes to Moscow: 2/9/16: Stephen F. Cohen, NYU, Princeton, EastWestAccord.com. http://rbth.com/politicsandsociety/2016/02/04/henry-kissinger_565099 "...I have spent the greater part of the past seventy years engaged in one way or another in U.S.-Russian relations. I have been at decision centers when alert levels have been raised, and at joint celebrations of diplomatic achievement. Our countries and the peoples of the world need a more durable prospect. I am here to argue for the possibility of a dialogue that seeks to merge our futures rather than elaborate our conflicts. This requires respect by both sides of the vital values and interest of the other. These goals cannot be completed in what remains of the current administration. But neither should their pursuits be postponed for American domestic politics. It will only come with a willingness in both Washington and Moscow, in the White House and the Kremlin, to move beyond the grievances and sense of victimization to confront the larger challenges that face both of our countries in the years ahead."
