PODCAST: Jack Matlock on America’s Unnecessarily Hostile Relationship With Russia

Jack Matlock, America’s second-to-last ambassador to the Soviet Union, talks to Scott Horton about relations with Russia today. He stresses that the real ideological differences that once divided America and the USSR don’t stand in the way anymore, and we need not continue to have a hostile relationship with a country that for the most part means us well. In fact, given that Russia, like America, has a huge stockpile of nuclear weapons, friendly cooperation between the two countries is far more important than any small issues like claims of election interference and personal insults between political leaders.
