New Cold War

From the beginning of the 20th century, the Anglo-Saxons considered the USSR and then Russia as their principal enemy. Persuaded that Moscow was attempting to invade all of Europe after the defeat of the 3rd Reich, they prolonged World War II with the intention of undermining the Soviets, bombed German cities to ensure that the Red Army would not benefit and dropped two nuclear bombs on the Japanese population to dissuade Stalin from using his military advantage. In 1949, they founded NATO and transformed the division of Europe into two zones of occupation in a Cold War that ended only when the USSR disappeared.
Recently, confronted with the unexpected reconsolidation of the Russian state, the Anglo-Saxons have returned to their initial strategy. The continuity of their anti-Russian policy is clearly visible in the figure of Zbignew Brzezinski, the former National Security Advisor to Democratic president Jimmy Carter, who moved over to the Republican side and then returned to the Democratic Party to ensure the election of his student, Barack Obama. Architect in the 1970’s of both the unconditional support for the Shah of Iran and the fomenting of the now decades-long Afghan war, he favors today a rapprochement with the Islamic regime in Iran and the expansion of the war against Pakistan.
Moscow, which succeeded in defeating the Islamic Emirate of Itchkeria (Chechnya) and halting Georgian aggression in South Ossetia, found itself trapped by the Ukraine during the "gas wars" of 2005-2010. The strategy of the New Cold War is identical to its antecedent. The Atlanticist press with no imagination dully applies the same cliches to Russia today that it once used against the USSR although the situation today is critically different. London, that once sheltered dissidents, has become the refuge of fleeing mafia oligarchs. The Pentagon is deploying a supposed anti-missile shield just as it once did Pershing II’s. NATO has expanded east and is opening new bases in the north to encircle, again, its traditional enemy.
