Is This the Start of a New Cold War?

Russia is planing to stock up on super advanced intercontinental ballistic missiles. Over 40 of these missiles will be delivered to Russia’s strategic forces in 2015, President Vladimir Putin announced at the ARMY-2015 Expo in Moscow. With intentional military responses to this, it could seem like the start of a new cold war.

“This year, our nuclear forces are going to get more than 40 intercontinental ballistic missiles capable of penetrating all existing, even the most advanced, missile defenses,” the Russian head of state said, in an RT news report.

Apparently, Russia’s move to stock up on nuclear ballistic arms comes after the U.S. proposed increasing its military presence inside NATO states in Eastern Europe. In a past statement at the educational forum “Seliger,” Putin warned not to threaten Russia, because it’s a nuclear power.

In a possible response to Russia’s display of power, the U.S. plans to send F-22 raptor fighter jets to Europe.

According to a senior U.S. Air Force official, the situation with Russia is “the biggest threat” on her mind.

The U.S. Air Force is considering a plan to put more of its rotational forces in Europe, said U.S. Secretary of the Air Force, Deborah Lee James, at the Paris Airshow in Le Bourget to reporters.

She was quoted by Reuters saying: “That’s the beginning, there will be more. You’ll continue to see more and more rotational forces.”

“The biggest threat on my mind is what’s happening with Russia and the activities of Russia,” said Deborah Lee James.

Some might be curious about how this struggle between two Eastern and Western super powers might escalate. It also seems like a challenge, to everyone following this issue, to remain objective to the true root of the problem—a concept that applies to any form of conflict.
