The Russian reset has never been anything but a quid pro quo deal: they get something they want (a national-level ego stroke by the U.S. plus cash) for addressing Afghanistan resupply issues and in
buying renting another voice (pretty much) favoring Iranian nuclear containment. The administration claims a foreign policy victory (photo op, New START, non-proliferation, needed logistical access to Afghanistan, etc.) even as the U.S. national security benefits of the treaty are non-existent.
Now, the whole reset deal may go off the rails. Why? Because the Russian leaders may have their feelings hurt if the United States passes a law criticizing Russian human rights violations and taking action against those complicit in such crimes.
Think the law will ever be passed? Me neither.
