After reading Daniel Bush's comments on US-Russian relations I felt that I needed to respond.
Even though I am some twenty years younger than Mr. Bush
he expressed my sentiments towards Russia acurately. Often times as I read your columns on the website I cannot help but feel that many Russians believe that America's populace is composed of bad people; I hope that this is not the case. From my perspective, even though our two countries have been enemies up to recently, I can assure you and your readers that my perception of the Russian populace is one based on respect and not disdain.
And I am convinced that my countrymen would view Russia in the same way if they familiarized themselves with the history of the Russian people.
Hopefully one of the by-products of the War on Terror will be even closer ties between the US and Russia. As Mr. Bush pointed out, our two countries share so many similarities: landscape, hard work ethic and deep rooted spiritual beliefs. With these fundamental requirements for great societies evident what better time to join with one another than during a time of war?
In closing I wish to thank your organization for providing an information source on Russia. Thank you for your time and have a good day.

At first glance, America is mired in presidential showdown, the Republicans and the Democrats are on the brink of war, BLM protesters clash with white cops, and the economy is generally in decline
