    Is the "cold war" still here ?

    Post by papa_umau on Mon 20 Oct 2014, 11:59 am

    After I read an article in the online Daily Telegraph newspaper about Swedish patrol-boats hunting for a suspected Russian sub off the coast of Stockholm and I saw a report just a couple of weeks ago about British fighter jets shadowing a Russian "Bear" long-range bomber just outside our airspace, I am beginning to wonder if the uneasy truce that was evident during the original "cold war" is returning ?

    HERE is a link that discusses this nervous behaviour in Sweden.




    Well good folks, what do YOU think of this latest sabre-rattling behaviour by Russia and do you believe that we are heading into another "cold war" ?

    I don't think that the "cold war", or anything like, it is back. I think that Putin is just feeling his oats and trying to put the fear up the ex-Soviet-bloc countries that want to join the EU.

    I have to agree with that evaluation Zath', as I do not think that Russia is in any condition to threaten nuclear war on anybody at this time.

    There is no doubt that Putin IS a bit of a rabble-rouser and that he likes to hear the sound of his own voice.

    The same man, nevertheless, is one that is worth keeping an eye on.
