2015 FLASHBACK: John Mearsheimer had a better idea for how to treat Ukraine

He makes a good point but Ukraine was already at that time overrun with domestic and international corruption, particularly American corruption. On a small scale Ukraine looks like what Russia might have become if Putin had not become president. American foreign policy almost always treats Putin as our archenemy because he opposes American interference in Russia. A main reason I liked Donald Trump early on was his stated intention to form better relations with Russia. US and Russia are natural allies. Together with Europe, Korea, Japan, Mongolia, and Canada, we could form a “top of the world” political and trade alliance that would generate great wealth and also be able to check aggressive ambitions from countries to the south, as we are seeing from China today.
