New cold war?

Discussion in 'The Pub' at netrider.net.au started by pro-pilot, Feb 19, 2008.

  1. Things are starting to hot up. Essentially after a buzz over a US aircraft carrier last week by two russian bombers and the Russians anger over Kosovo's independance launch compliments of the CO2 loving UN.

    Ukraine set to outlaw Nato bases after Russian threats


  2. You were so sensible an hour ago. They don't want war, anymore than we do.
  3. A new cold war?
    The old one ever really ended, it just went quiet for a while when the Ruskies ran out of cash.
    They'll be back.
  4. Forgive my ignorance, but that kind of makes Russia sound anti-NATO, anti-western, in effect bad guys? I thought they were "on our side" (so to speak) these days?
