The world was relieved when the "cold war" finally had come to an end. What some didn't think about was one that could start up years later. Wouldn't it be a perfect time now that we are busy in Iraq, Afghanistan and even more troops stationed throughout other parts of the world? I wonder if that is what the troop realignment is about. Anyway, back to the subject of this post...........
THE NEW COLD WAR----America vs. China/Russia?
After all, Putin has been changing his tune lately, why? Old wounds? Once KGB always KGB? After all, he wasn't just an agent when the "cold war" ended, he was the "head" of the KGB! A sworn enemy of the United States! Putin could be a tool for China and get something like "wealth" in return. Maybe even share some, just a little with his public, just enough to get them off his back. You never know. They did fall into dire straights financially when the "cold war" was over. It was and still is hard for the Russian people, financially that is. The "behind closed-doors" meetings he's been having with Chinese officials makes me nervous.
Hmmm........makes you wonder doesn't it?
I wonder if this is our future. I think this was a long time coming anyway and yes, we should be alarmed. We can "better them" as some experts would say in weaponry (we hope), but sooner or later it will have to be finished on the ground with boots. They outnumber us at least 4:1. At least! Something to think about.
