Cold War reversion?

Everybody was making fun of Putin as an idiot pictured without his shirt.

Now he is demonstrating that Russia is strong and determined and could care less what the world thinks.

Russia is reverting back to the Cold War, and in the coming years will be more aggressive and take more countries with or without approval of the rest of the world, especially the U.S.

In 1963, the U.S. panicked and almost went to war because Russia was going to put missiles in Cuba.

For years, the U.S. strategy has been to bring countries near Russia into NATO and deploying missiles around the Russia border.

I don’t understand our representatives trying to encroach on Russia, and then expecting Russia to sit idly by while the U.S. surrounds that country, and now being shocked and surprised.

The blunder of encroaching on Russia is as bad as invading Iraq with false information about weapons of mass destruction.
