"Cold War" Watch

Former UN Ambassador John Bolton puts the smack down on this "Cold War" business by people who should know better.

"Former secretaries of state Henry Kissinger and George Shultz argued...that the United States should neither be 'isolating' Russia nor drifting toward 'confrontation.' The Post's Masha Lipman urged us to avoid 'Cold War preconceptions and illusions.' Unfortunately, these distinguished commentators are aiming at straw men: No serious observer thinks we face a new Cold War or that isolating Russia because of its increasing foreign adventurism is a real solution."

Thank you John Bolton. Now if only he mentioned the "From Russia with..." cliche, we'd be complete.
