Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Medvedev was President of Russia during the Georgia War started by Saakashvili at the behest of NATO allies, the West and Israel, a key military ally. George Bush, John McCaine and profiteer lobbyist Scheunemann were key players ... Bush/Cheney threatened a naval assault from the Baltic Sea ... never happened as the war soon ended with "independence" called over Abkhazia and South Ossetia.

Indeed the renewal of the SALT treaty and don't forget the key foreign policy win for Obama the short-lived JCPOA agreement with Iran.

Obama/Biden/HRC showed the appreciation for Medvedev's cooperation by starting the war in Libya for regime change .... oops, that wasn't part of the UN Security Council resolution (1) ... oh what the heck .... it's just about borders-sovereignty-UN Charter ... who really cares? Democrats got the applause of the MIC establishment, neocons and the twin Johns: Bolton and McCaine. Well done USA, onward to Syria.
