Has Cold War II, Electric Boogaloo Officially Started?

YahooNews: Several Russian ships and 1,000 soldiers will take part in joint naval maneuvers with Venezuela in the Caribbean Sea later this year, exercises likely to increase diplomatic tensions with Washington. Plans for the naval operations come at a time of heightened diplomatic tension and Cold War-style rhetoric between Moscow and the United States over the recent war in Georgia and plans for a US missile defense system in the Czech Republic and Poland.

This will be the first time Russia's navy will carry such exercises in Latin America. The Venezuelan air force is likely to participate in the exercises.

No more "Cold War" references.

Call it the Cool War, the New War, something, anything, other than the Cold War.
