You mean after the US put nuclear missiles in Turkey, a country that shared a border with the Soviet Union?  :flowstone:

Breaking international treaties is essential to Americans’ security.

Do I think being the unaccountable bully of the world reaps backlash? No that’s silly.

Whenever.  You seem to be under the impression that saying, "they started it" is somehow supposed to make America safer.

No, I'm not saying that the US escalating nuclear tensions made us any safer.  I'm actually saying the opposite.

The Soviets mirrored our actions in the Cold War, for the same reason. They’re safe now too.

Only difference being they entered into a no-win colonial war in Afghanistan.

The next cold war will be with China. The economic dominance argument is obvious, but hardliners are also currently pushing the 'China is fermenting world communism' rhetoric. They only had to change a couple words from what they were saying 60-70 years ago. We wont be able to spend our way out of this one, and our days of being the world's only superpower are numbered.

A big issue will be how well Russia and China are getting along. They recently did a joint military exercises. Russia just leased a naval base in Sudan that will allow them easier access to deploy nuclear warships, assumably  submarines, far from their national borders. Between that and China's deep pockets to build their military, there will be plenty of stories to scare people here.

Any shooting wars will be proxy wars. The more things change, the more they stay the same, except China won't be the junior partner in the threat assessment this time.
