Dark Colonel, the Sequel
an interview in World Monitor of Alvin Toffler by Victor Alksnis
(our site's interview review)
Alvin Toffler has a conversation with Colonel Viktor Alksnis about Soviet disintegration and possible reintegration in the future.
In 2014 the first sign of this "possible Soviet reintegration" arrived in Ukraine: "Ukraine has seen a sharp rise in tensions since a new pro-European government took charge of the country in February. Moscow branded the new government illegitimate and annexed Ukraine's Crimea region last month, citing threats to Crimea's Russian-speaking majority. And in eastern Ukraine, pro-Russian separatists have seized government and police buildings in as many as 10 towns and cities." (Source: "Pro-Russian separatists in Ukraine ignore new Geneva pact aimed at easing tensions", by Tom Watkins, Phil Black, and Shelby Lin Erdman, CNN—in CNN World) See 2014 Russian military intervention in Ukraine. Back to the cold war? Ukraine has two oil fields and lots of gas fields. Could it be that's the real underlying motivation of Russian misbehavior? That was so when the U.S. invaded Iraq in 2003, unprovoked, using a fabricated WMD excuse. Is this Russia saying if the USA can do it, so can we?
