Former US congressman Dennis Kucinich has revealed that the House of representatives is about to give a green light to another Cold War against Russia.
Kucinich, former US Representative from Ohio, wrote in an article on portal globalresearch.ca that Washington has plans for restarting the Cold War against Moscow.
House Resolution 758, which cited a list of "grievances, old and new, against Russia" is "tantamount to a 'Declaration of Cold War'," Kucinich wrote.
He believes that if the resolution gets approved, it will effectively open the gates of global catastrophe. House Resolution 758 is up for debate last Wednesday. PressTV
What does a Cold War mean?
The Cold War was a state of political and military tension after World War II between powers in the Western Bloc (the United States, its NATO allies and others) and powers in the Eastern Bloc (the Soviet Union and its allies in the Warsaw Pact).
Historians have not fully agreed on the dates, but 1947–1991 is common. It was termed as "cold" because there was no large-scale fighting directly between the two sides, although there were major regional wars in Korea, Vietnam and Afghanistan that the two sides supported. The Cold War split the temporary wartime alliance against Nazi Germany, leaving the USSR and the US as two superpowers with profound economic and political differences: the former being a single-party Marxist–Leninist state, and the latter being a capitalist state with generally free elections. A self-proclaimed neutral bloc arose with the Non-Aligned Movement founded by Egypt, India, Indonesia and Yugoslavia; this faction rejected association with either the US-led West or the Soviet-led East. The two superpowers never engaged directly in full-scale armed combat but they each armed heavily in preparation of a possible all-out nuclear world war. Each side had a nuclear deterrent that deterred an attack by the other side, on the basis that such an attack would lead to total destruction of the attacker: the doctrine of mutually assured destruction or MAD. Aside from the development of the two sides' nuclear arsenals, and deployment of conventional military forces, the struggle for dominance was expressed via proxy wars around the globe, psychological warfare, propaganda and espionage, and technological competitions such as the Space Race.
