The Arctic Frontier - Armed with Cooperation

In the midst of the 20th century the Arctic resembled a geopolitical playground where two superpowers tested each other’s nerves with their burgeoning nuclear arsenals, as submarines plied deep beneath icy waters.

Route-2030

"There is nothing more difficult to take in hand or more perilous to conduct… than to take the lead in the introduction of a new order of things." – Niccolò Machiavelli Machiavelli's quote stresses three things.
