Out of the Cold War?

Caroline Dorminey, writing for The American Conservative, covered the Charles Koch Institute’s foreign policy conference “Advancing American Security.” In particular, Dorminey notes how panelists tended to strongly focus on U.S.-Russia relations. As she writes:

“It’s possible that the panelists are stuck in a Cold War mentality, though that’s unlikely. More probable is that the preoccupation with the Soviet Union and modern-day Russia stems from the fact that Russia has remained the only country capable of posing a significant threat to America’s position of power. China might be headed in that direction, but doesn’t seem to be there yet. Thus, Russia is one of the few threats that realists generally recognize as a valid danger.”
