    Prognosis on decentralization of the Russian Power Sector is needed more than the National defense Initiative.

    Fransis was so right to predict the collapse of the USSR and Yugoslavia in 1989-1990. Same methods are appliable to the present-day Russian Military machine. I am sure that taxpayers would sleep better with predictions of these bright guys than with technological Cassandras who can be a little bit mistaken in 'small details' with big consequences. In Russia so-called human factors mean much more than many in the West think about. Fukuyama and Richard Pipes are a few chosen who pay the needed attention to these factors and have been never mistaken.
