Russia and US: “It’s not a Cold War”

What happens when you have 8 years of incredibly bad foreign policy? Russia, US move past Cold War to unpredictable confrontation.

At least during the Cold War, things were predictable. Now, not so much.

The friction between Moscow and Washington — by many assessments at its highest level since the fall of the Berlin Wall — led Mikhail Gorbachev, the last leader of the Soviet Union, to make a plea Monday for dialogue and de-escalation.

“I think the world has reached a dangerous point,” Gorbachev warned, according to Agence France Presse.

“This needs to stop. We need to renew dialogue,” Gorbachev said, commenting on the US decision to call off Syria talks.

During one Presidential Debate, President Obama ridiculed Mr. Romney for thinking that Russia might pose some kind of threat to the US.

“The 1980s are now calling to ask for their foreign policy back because the Cold War’s been over for 20 years.”

–President Obama, during the third presidential debate, Oct. 22, 2012

But he is the smartest President ever. (Just ask anyone on the Left and they will tell you!) But he missed this. (And so much else.)
