Let's face it the US empire project since the end of WWII has been a complete and utter failure. But admitting failure is not in the US vocabulary, so prone to its own exaggerations, its admitted "exceptionalism"-remember Obama, the "indispensible country" from Bill Clinton's Secretary of State Madeline Albright plus all the other nonsense of its imagined entitlement to intervene anywhere in the world.

Putin wants diplomatic dialogue with the US in a multi-polar world. That is the reality. Can we respond in kind or remain in denial with our exceptional pretense?
