Essay Prompts:
1. The video underscored the significance of open communication and mutual respect for peace. When looking at Secretary Perry’s speech in totality, and based on your additional research, what were the key steps taken to build relations with Russia post-Cold-War, and what caused the decrease in relations since? Pick the leading indicators of decreasing US/Russian relations and discuss what indicators of a diminishing relationship intelligence should have noted.
2. Secretary Perry addresses many indicators that Russia remains a failing economy and highlights Russian actions to divert attention from these failures. Despite the failings, Russia continues to take aggressive actions that, in the words of Secretary Perry, may cause them to “blunder into a conflict.” What steps have we seen Russia take since this speech was given that support this assessment? Does Russia seem to be improving in domestic aspects, or do we continue to see Russia struggle and create screens to hide such issues, and what should intelligence analysts be looking for as indicators?
