Things are getting a little uncomfortable.

Pat Buchanan has a blog entry this week about the deteriorating relations between Russia and the US. He squarely puts the blame on George W. Bush and Bill Clinton. In the minds of the American geo-political analysts, Russia has always remained the main global opponent, and defeating Russia is the ultimate dream. StratFor periodically devotes articles to the analysis of what the US wants to do. Even though not explicitly mentioned, the War on Terror, Afghanistan and Iraq invasions, etc., were just tactical steps into containing Russia. A couple of years ago they even patted themselves on the back for finishing the job in Iraq and were ready for the next step, Iran. Since then the mounting pressure from the US public seems to have convinced them otherwise.

I am not going to recite what Buchanan says but you can read it all here.
