A very good question

Edward Lozansky, president of the American University in Moscow and professor of world politics at Moscow State University, asked a good question in last week's Moscow Times:
How can we expect cooperation from Putin on Syria, Iran, Edward Snowden or a variety of other issues when we are openly trying to undermine him both politically and economically?

Is Lozansky suggesting that the US government, not to mention American people of good will, should not oppose Russia's de facto and de jure homophobia?

BTW, have you heard or read anything from the openly gay Russophile American figure skater Johnny Weir on this matter, since he'd earlier announced his interest in competing for a position on the 2014 US Olympic team for the games in Sochi?

No. He is asking why we act surprised when Putin doesn't do something to oblige us. He's not even talking about the Olympics, but about that last year or more.

As for Weir, he says he'll go and get arrested if that's what happens but he won't display anything like a pin, because the IOC is against that.
