Voices calling for the beginning of a new cold war with Russia, melts in the U.S. louder, writes the editor of The Nation Katrina van den Heuvel in the column for.
The alarm has "war Party" - a political clique, which was composed of congressmen, military and Authorized the administration of Barack Hussein Obama. Among them van den Heuvel allocates General Joseph Dunford Jr., the Pentagon chief Ashton Carter, the U.S. assistant Secretary of state Victoria Nuland and the head of the Supreme command of the combined military might of NATO in the European Union Philip Breedlove. All of these figures, however, regard the Russian Federation as a primary danger to state security.
"War party seems to want to drag the whole of Europe up to the borders of Russia in the sphere of influence of the USA or NATO. Most of there world set themselves the task of regime change in Russia, " - says the writer.
The civil conflict in Ukraine, on its vision, is rapidly transformed into unconventional, or proxy war between NATO and Russia. Replacing diplomacy come military maneuvers, and bilateral cooperation in many areas (from Commerce to monitor the arms) is broken, and this is big mistake from the capital of the USA.
Editor-in-chief The Nation offers a more reasonable foreign policy approach, articulated by members of the American division for Treaty between East and West (a non-partisan organization of American Residents who are concerned about the possibility of a new cold war between Russia and the USA), such as political scientist Stephen Cohen: cooperation with Russia to strengthen security throughout Europe.

in her vision, becomes the decisive role of the head of American diplomacy John Kerry that Moscow does not consider "existential threat" and, in addition, has bitter experience of participation in the war was to defend himself (apparently, the story is about the war in Vietnam, in which Kerry was attended by approx. Ed.).
"but at the same time, the war Party continues to bark at the moon, Kerry was able to reach an agreement, under which Iran will not develop nuclear weapons for ten years or more. Now he should fight for diplomatic settlement where the stakes are even higher, " concludes the writer.
