The Russians Are Still a Good Bet for Fiction Writers
Between reports that Russia and the United States might cooperate, to some extent, in the development of missile defense systems and recent information that parts of the Russian government are in cahoots with Iraq, it isn't too difficult to put together a plot for a novel in which the "end" of the Cold War was a ruse.
I wonder if a predilection for contemplating such things leads to many sleepless nights among novelists. Just imagine throwing that twist into the world stage as it currently exists!
Of course, it's much more likely that the Russian government is still recovering from communism and is, therefore, bipolar.
