SEN. MITT ROMNEY: I would suggest the goal of having a collaborative co-existence with Russia is not something they are pursuing, and they have a very different intent.
We need to be clear-eyed about Russia’s intentions. Russia has no intention of halting its malign activity—activity that is not conducive to a peaceful world. We must develop a comprehensive strategy, instead of just ad hoc sanctions, that diverts Russia from its current path.
We need to have a very dramatic strategy. Go back to the George Kennen strategy in the days of the Cold War. I’m not suggesting we go back to the Cold War, but I am suggesting we develop a comprehensive strategy that diverts them from the course they are on.
