…”Do We Really Want a Cold War II?”
As per Mrs Fisher’s post, my two cents are,
Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It would be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron’s cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience. – C. S. Lewis
(And what’s with the tie-less look?)
I suppose it depends on who the “we” stands for… A lot of money can be made when there is a permanent state of “cold war”. Remember Mr. Eisenhower’s advice.
Unbelievable. Buchanan just got done explaining that Hitler wasn’t such a bad guy, and it was really that old meanie Churchill’s fault that WW2 and the Holocaust had to happen, and now he’s trying to paint Russia as a religious nation and Putin as a devout Christian???
Russia no longer poses the kind of military threat she once did, so there isn’t going to be a new Cold War. But the fact remains, Putin is a man who wants Russia to be the superpower she once was, and who wants to be the most powerful man in the world. He hates America and is going to cause mischief wherever he can. He lacks the power and money to be what Stalin was, so there’s no need to overreact, but the fact remains: he’s a bad man with bad ambitions.
