“The United States, the President swore, is ‘not seeking a new Cold War.’ But he is, and it didn’t have to be that way. The end of the Cold War could have been the end of the Cold War. Russia really didn’t want a new Cold War and has only been reluctantly drawn into it. … Though Biden says he is not seeking a new Cold War, it looks in several key ways that he is. The difference is that this time it is not an ideological battle. It is not an epic battle between communism and democracy. It is a petty and self-serving struggle for markets and for hegemony.” (10/14/21)
