Russia's "Street Theater"

Austin Bay:

The big point: Russia is offering options and talking cooperation. The second big point: The Russian huff has been street theater since the mid-1990s. “Useful idiots” bought the schtick– but they always do. They made for sensational anti-American headlines.
Bay notes that Russia has a crumbling infrastructure and needs allies against strengthened border states. (What of the joint military ops with the Chinese?)

"Allies" seems a strange word to use in a sentence with anything Russian. They are like the autistic kid on the world block. (The big one, not the savant one.)
