Russia: A ticking time bomb

Is the cold war re-ignited? Vladamir Putin has started (what was once halted after the collapse of the soviet union) routine strategic bomber runs, even into no fly zones, without notification or apology. There are remnants of the Soviet Union in the post-soviet era. Russia has also recently created a new bomb which has been dubbed “The father of all bombs” a play on the American bomb called “The mother of all bombs”.

It seems like the cold war has started it’s second chapter. Hopefully, America will continue to meet these issues with diplomatic solutions and not get ahead of themselves; but it seems like they’re heading down that path anyway. Russia has said that if America continues with it’s wishes to build a missile defense system in Poland and the Czech Republic then Russia will meet their actions with “retaliatory steps”. Putin continues to criticize America’s foreign policy and intends to establish Russia as a important and dominant in world affairs.

It is a bitter relationship between the two countries and they have had a rough past, and it doesn’t look like it is going to change in the next couple years, We need a new foreign policy and we need new politicians to ensure this happens!
