"US-Russia relations 'maybe worse' now than Cold War" - Vladimir Putin's spokesman

The relationship between the U.S. and Russia may be more antagonistic now than it was during the decades-long Cold War, Russian President Vladimir Putin's top spokesman said Friday.

Asked by ABC's "Good Morning America" host George Stephanopoulos if the U.S. and Russia were in a "new Cold War," Dmitry Peskov said the current situation may be worse, blaming the U.S. for disintegrating cooperation between the two countries.

"New Cold War? Well, maybe even worse. Maybe even worse, taking into account actions of the present presidential administration in Washington," Peskov told Stephanopoulos. 

Peskov cited a decision to expel 35 Russian diplomats from the U.S. in December, which was made under former President Obama and not President Trump.

  • The people in charge of those two countries *want* tensions to continue.  Without tensions and the constant threat of war, they have no purpose.

    Similar feelings of uselessness have led to rebellions and military coups throughout history, as grizzled generals and warlords rejected peace and grasped at chances to be relevant again.

    Now, the warlords are guys who own weapons companies and who seek to profit from the industry of war.  Difference faces, but similar motivations.

    If Russia and the USA ever become good friends those people will lose money and relevance, and that's unacceptable to them.  Fortunately, they have such massive influence that they can continue tensions forever if they want to.

    I'm sure there have been cases where American and Russian representatives have met to discuss how they can *continue* being enemies, over drinks and caviar served by expensive prostitutes.
    People in this world look at things mistakenly, and think that what they do not understand must be the void. This is not the true void. It is bewilderment.
