We make them rich by staying dependant on their oil, we make them paranoid by having a unilateral, pre-emptive foreign policy, we give their leaders moral justification for spying, torturing, and detaining without legal representation of their own citizens, and we destroy the U.S.'s reputation as the shining beacon on the hill, so the citizens of Russia have fewer role models in the world with which to demand change...then we question why Putin acts so boldly and refuses to work with us.
