On This Date In History -- New Feature

On This Date in History...

President Lyndon Johnson met with Soviet Premier Aleksei Kosygin at Glassboro, New Jersey, in an effort to diffuse tensions in the Cold War.  Results were less than satisfactory, however, as Viet Nam and other issues continued to divide the two great nations.  

Certainly the hope was that one day Russia, or the Soviet Union, would be partners in peace around the world.  Fifty years later, the Soviet Union is no more, but a former member of the KGB, and now leader of a resurgent Russia, seeks to create a network of alliances and influence to counter perceived threats from the West.

Whatever the ills of Russia, and there are many, the world must find a means to mutual respect so the people of the world can be safe.
