Mikhail Gorbachev accuses United States of drawing Russia into new Cold War

Mikhail Gorbachev accuses the United States of drawing Russia into a new Cold War saying he fears hostilities could escalate into armed conflict.

The last Soviet leader Mikhail Gorbachev has accused the United States of drawing Russia into a new Cold War and said he feared hostilities could escalate into armed conflict.

The United States "has already drawn us into a new Cold War, trying openly to achieve its main idea of triumphalism," Mr Gorbachev said in an interview with the Interfax news agency.

"Where will that lead all of us? A Cold War is already being waged openly. What's next?" asked the 83-year-old former Soviet president, who during his time in power eased relations with the West but is vilified in Russia for allowing the breakup of the USSR.

"Unfortunately I cannot say for sure that a Cold War won't lead to a 'hot' one. I fear they could take the risk," Mr Gorbachev said, apparently referring to the United States.

Mr Gorbachev in November last year warned the world was "on the brink of a new Cold War."

Unbelievable that Obambi has brought us to this point when Gorbachav has to speak out against him.

Someone please show me where Obambi has not alienated ANY allies. Any?

Soviet leaders Gorby and Pootypoot are still sore their side was defeated in the Cold War. They are out to settle the score.

Sit down and shut up, Gorbachev. You are of no consequence.

It remains to be seen if the MSM report on this because the guy they used to have Gorbasms over is now attacking their boy Obama.

No surprise. Obambi has weakened our standing in geo-politics and giving our current and potential enemies big "un-inflated" balls. He is the epitomy of weak leadership due to his Marxist/Muslim ideologies. He will go down in history as the punk who let America's enemies grow, while destroying the American Dream thru his domestic "redistribution" of the middle-class.

I didn't mean to imply that Russia is an ally. Just making a point about Gorbachev statement.

Obama has unwon Iraq and is in the process of unwinning Afghanistan. Now he’s going to unwin the Cold War.

with any luck, he can unwin the WWII before he leaves office.

Weakness is provocation. Obama's foreign policy created a power vacuum, which baited Putin's aggression.

Obama has caused a TRAIN WRECK with US foreign policy. No President could have been more of a disaster than Obama, no matter how hard they tried!

But aside from that, the country the USA needs to be watching carefully and being very concerned about is China and not Russia!
