    In 2009, as Russia was trying to emerge from recession, few would have predicted that five years later Russian soldiers would be making moves into Ukraine following the annexation of Crimea. The Cold War was history, as our President reminded in 2012 when he told Mitt Romney the 80’s were calling to ask for their foreign policy back. A few exceptions stand out. Author Tom Clancy wrote about it in his final novel. On a more scientific level, geopolitical forecaster George Friedman who wrote in…
