A New Cold War?
This whole "debate" highlights very well how hypocrisy makes a country disfunctional in an area, about which it cannot speak honestly to itself. It blocks any real debate, it scares serious and honest people out of the field. Unfortunately, demagoguery is best done by fools. In the area of international policy, the U.S. has long become a slave of its own lies, much like the old USSR. Fortunately for the Russians, it doesn't seem to ne the case with them. Probably they've learned their lesson.
