"Andrea Kendall-Taylor, director of the transatlantic security program at the Center for a New American Security, said she expected the administration to continue to toe a firm line with Moscow.

His administration pulled back, however, on an assertion Biden made as a candidate that Russia had put bounties on the heads of American troops serving in Afghanistan and that Trump had refused to confront Putin over it… "Putin appears especially sensitive to Biden’s criticism, recalling his U.S. ambassador after the 'killer' remark, for example, said Andrea Kendall-Taylor, director of the transatlantic security [...]

"'You face a two-front war where we don’t have a two-front military,' said Elbridge Colby, a former deputy assistant secretary of defense during the Trump administration. 'If NATO is expecting U.S. forces to bail it out simultaneously with a fight over Taiwan, we can’t do them both. We don’t have the assets.
