Putin back in from the cold?

  • Temporarily yes in wake of Paris attacks, i.e. France & Russia co-ordinating attacks against ISIS.
  • Like the allies worked with Stalin to defeat Nazism, the west can today work with Russia to fight a common foe.
  • But, back then, Hitler posed an existential threat - today the west can probably defeat ISIS without Russian assistance, and hence hopefully won't trade Ukraine for help in the Middle East.
