The Good Old Days: Cold War Fever

It was the USA against the USSR until they took the socialist out their name, sort of tanked, fell apart, and started to disarm.  We bagged some bombs too.  Ever since the cold war ended right wing pols in both countries have longed to have an external enemy they could point to and use to advance their own power and increase the size of their personal purse.

Well, cold war fans, take note.  The 2016 election will be all about foreign policy, but not about the Middle East full of crazy Arabs and Jews.  No it will be about the Cold War 2.0.

US and Russia in danger of returning to era of nuclear rivalry
