    Munich Conference Extends Cold War 2

    Munich did nothing to appease Cold War 2.0 fears




    The Munich Security Conference is supposed to be an annual lofty gathering of global politicians, and military and intelligence experts. Theoretically, they discuss serious security matters under a cool professional eye in an informed setting.
    Yet, in these times of doom and gloom, what the 54th conference yielded was another Russophobia show – a direct connection to the “Russiagate” soap opera in Washington.

    The Munich Security Conference is supposed to be an annual lofty gathering of global politicians, and military and intelligence experts. Theoretically, they discuss serious security matters under a cool professional eye in an informed setting.
    Yet, in these times of doom and gloom, what the 54th conference yielded was another Russophobia show – a direct connection to the “Russiagate” soap opera in Washington.


    In fact, the 2018 Munich Security Report was entitled, To The Brink – And Back? In it, the Conference Chairman Wolfgang Ischinger did not mince his words. “The world has gotten closer – much too close! – to the brink of a significant conflict,” he said.


    That was not a particularly subtly code for Cold War 2.0, which could fast develop into a direct confrontation between NATO and Russia. The report also singled out the doctrine of the United States President Donald as the work of a “hostile revisionist power,” attacking the “building blocks of [the] international order.”
    But then, when the talks began, ingrained perceptions took over with Russia as a lethal threat to NATO, and vice-versa.

    I think he meant fundings...

    The NATO defense ministers have determined that they increase their findings. We have troops in Poland and three Baltic countries. I think NATO is unified. We have to continue the sanctions against Russia,” he added.
