Why do we have to fight Russia? Didn’t we win the cold war?

When the neocons advocated invading Iraq, a basket-case of a country unable to mount much of a military defense, they were just being mean and evil amoral bullies. When they starting talking about bombing Iran, a country with vastly greater capability to fight back, they were being reckless and stupid. But now that they are advocating we militarily confront Russia, as Cheney is here, they are totally insane.

For an informed point of view about the currently conflict between Georgia and Russia that is very different from what you have been hearing in the media check out Glenn Greenwald's interview with Charles King, a professor in the School of Foreign Service and the Department of Government at Georgetown University.
