A Return to the Cold War?

Here's the title of an article appearing in the LA Times today: "Russia Aims to Counter U.S. With Bigger Arsenal."

The rest of the article talks about how tough talk from Putin is nothing new. Much of it is in response to US criticism of Putin's questionable record on democracy.

In his speech, Putin also addressed the declining Russian population. He talked about even giving women $10,000 to have a second child.

How completely undemocratic.

In a true democracy, you pay off everyone as a substitute for actual policy.
