Herbert London: Putin, Obama And Flight 17

The evidence that Putin provided the SA11 missile system and the requisite training and or actual participation for the dissident Russian forces in the Eastern Ukrainian is mounting. An effort to withhold evidence and conceal it adds to the calumny about this Malaysian airliner blown from the skies. Yet President Obama’s initial reaction to the destruction of flight 17 and its 298 passengers was so wooden and lacking in compassion, one might think this atrocity was a daily occurrence.

The world has been watching Russia and Ukraine since last week's downing of a Malaysia Airlines jet that killed 298 civilians. Even as investigators comb the contested site, Russian President Vladimir Putin has sought to blame Kiev for breaking a cease-fire with pro-Russian separatists. What should the U.S. do about this global hotspot? And is Putin soul-less, as Vice President Biden reportedly told the Russian leader, or just cynical?

"The Last Empire: The Final Days Of The Soviet Union" By Serhii Plokhy

    Serhii Plokhy is the Mykhailo Hrushevsky Professor of Ukrainian History and the Director of the Ukrainian Research Institute at Harvard University.

His new book is The Last Empire: The Final Days of the Soviet Union.

As prize-winning historian Serhii Plokhy reveals in The Last Empire, the collapse of the Soviet Union was anything but the handiwork of the United States. On the contrary, American leaders dreaded the possibility that the Soviet Union—weakened by infighting and economic turmoil—might suddenly crumble, throwing all of Eurasia into chaos.
