Yeah, Does Feel Like The Cold War Is Back On

The race is back on again.  Cold War 2.0 is here despite claims to the contrary by the Obama White House.  I fully understand the rationale for calling it this.  It isn't likely going to be a sort of Iron Curtain thing but there will be a lot of low-level one-upmanship in the media, cyberspace (as in hacking), and generally causing pain here and there. 

And this reminder from CNN with a map of Russian incursions over the last few months showed that until both sides find an agreeable arrangement, things can heat up rather fast should someone decided to have a twitchy finger or a bad day.
