Thomas Barnett:

The reason why you don’t lose your head over stuff like this is that every time there’s churn in the international security order, there are always new opportunities for re-balancing. Most of that re-balancing has been focused on the United States for the past four years, hence the increasingly sensible stuff out of the Bush administration. After a while, your choices are simply narrowed.

The same will happen with Russia, and if we avoid the calls of the freak-out artists, we’ll find several useful answers regarding future structure along the way.
