Cold War II

And the name fits. I’m glad to see the mainstream news media is giving it some attention. Admittedly, it has a nicer ring than to than does “World War III”.

It started after Vladimir Putin changed history by invading an independent country, Ukraine, and seizing its Republic of Crimea.

I grew up during the end of the first Cold War, when the imminent threat of total planetary destruction was never more than half an hour away. Today, the doomsday clock is at three minutes to midnight.
