It, come from a cane so it resonated with people you made us household name, he was so tough on Russia over the years. Could could that have made it harder for American presidents to keep the. Door open for. Diplomacy with Russia could it have actually hampered, efforts to to have. A relationship with between, the? United States? And Russia, remember McCain was Reagan. Generation Republican and he believed that you, could, talk, to Russia for force you should have someone like Putin.

Of course aureus later Mike You know those Will know that the EU in a report published not long after the war actually blamed. Georgia for starting it claimed that the shelling of the south of siege. In capital wolves the reason that the big. Conflict have begun Well You try to do is play because actually at that, moment Europeans were looking desperately for a way of getting out of status for, Russia but it's it's Cannot. No tags flies especially the. Rationalize claim that Russia's reported coordinated wing two thousand tanks started, with two hundred plays a very good occasion to right of course it couldn't, have happened overnight I just, want to give you a chance to about the future major sectors valley because he's not the greatest of lines so we talked to you. For that long I'm afraid When you warned recently that the west has appeased. Putin and his still appeasing Putin what do you now calling on them to do well obvious that back in two thousand. Eight we were clearly critic thing that would. Be next Committee, Electra chase geopolitics reasonable everybody what the, west needs to do is very clear I hall They need Russia post the.
