Gorbachev: US dragging Russia into new Cold War, which might grow into armed conflict (RT, Jan 29, 2015):

Mikhail Gorbachev has accused the US of dragging Russia into a new Cold War. The former Soviet president fears the chill in relations could eventually spur an armed conflict.

Plainly speaking, the US has already dragged us into a new Cold War, trying to openly implement its idea of triumphalism,” Gorbachev said in an interview with Interfax.

The former USSR leader, whose name is associated with the end of the Cold War between the Soviet Union and the United States, is worried about the possible consequences.

What’s next? Unfortunately, I cannot be sure that the Cold War will not bring about a ‘hot’ one. I’m afraid they might take the risk,” he said.

  1. I was at a reception for him in San Francisco some years ago, he gave a very boring speech, and that is where I heard New World Order for the first time since Hitler. I tried to get to the microphone to ask him what he meant by New World Order, but the lines were too long, the questions were probably approved in advance.

    At that time, I was happy to think Russia and the US were now friends, but that New World Order phrase had me on edge. Now, US politicians use it, so do the idiots in the EU.

    The US is run by fools who blame Russia for the fall of the dollar…..they ought to see China’s part as well…………and more importantly, their own part. But, they are incapable of seeing their part in anything……..and until the empire collapses, it will only get worse. Trying to make a war with Russia is pure folly, the entire world will back Russia. The EU is still speaking pro American…..but their acts don’t match their words.

    The EU is a very weak, debt laden affiliation of nations, and it is getting weaker every day.
