A View To A Kill

I was disgusted to read about Russia's plans to dril for oil in the Arctic, but have found I have covered it already. That said, we need to make it clear to the Russian government that this kind of behaviour isn't acceptable. In any case, what with this, their intimidation of the British Council, and other possible misdemeanours, what possible benefit is there for them in the long term by saber rattling and playing power games? It only puts up the backs of the International Community and, as David Milliband has said, stains Russia's reputation.

Russia is proving to be a serious distraction from more important international issues, which is frustrating for everyone. I can't see it ending anytime soon as they try to reassert themselves on the world stage.

On a completely unrelated note, I have added a link to your blog - keep up the good work.
