The New Cold War Resolution: A DIY Guide to Heating Things Up / Sputnik US - News, Opinion, Radio

The US House of Representatives passed a resolution Thursday condemning Russia for its alleged policy of aggression against neighboring countries. Critics are calling it a dangerous provocation that highlights U.S. hypocrisy and threatens to further damage relations, already at a historic low.
Former congressman Ron Paul has called House Resolution 758 "16 pages of war propaganda that should have made even neocons blush, if they were capable of such a thing."

Indeed, the resolution will likely only serve to bring the "New Cold War" closer to a frightening boiling point. But after all, there's money to be made in this madness. And here's how it's done:

Step 1: Note that moves to decrease the size of the U.S. military threaten the profits of the military industrial complex. That just won’t do. Proceed to Step 2.

Step 2: Determine a new enemy that it will be easy to provoke. Like a bear. A bear! Yes! Russia! I mean, taxpayers spent more than $20 trillion — yes, trillion! — on a decades-long war-non-war with the Soviet Union. And what’s good for Lockheed Martin is good for… well, Lockheed Martin.

Step 3: Find a country that neighbors the target country. Ukraine seemed ripe for a change, didn't it? What with that democratically elected, but Moscow-friendly president they had. Do Americans know where Ukraine is? Meh, doesn’t matter. The ones that don’t know where it is will want to intervene even more. This is ‘Merica, after al!
