I read with foreboding the nearly unhinged paranoia mongering about Putin as the New Stalin, in the Stephens essay: the New Cold War is upon us with the same Party Line as the old Cold War, a rehearsal of shopworn political/historical chatter: us versus Putin, we are the sane,the rational ones, he is the power mad megalomaniac. Cliche piled on cliche in homage to the last Cold War. We don’t have to search for our Nixons or McCarthys, we have Mr. Stephens, Strobe Talbott, Samantha Power, Victoria Nuland and assorted Ukrainian allies, of various loathsome political hues.
