As the U.S. becomes further embroiled in a combination of spy hunt and witch hunt targeting alleged Russian activity a crisis rivaling if not exceeding the depths of the McCarthy period sees a new Cold War between the two nations that is worsening by the day.

The expanding accusations of being "Russian assets" or "agents" against prominent American elected or appointed officials, scholars, former and current presidential candidates and others is occurring as two key missile-control treaties have been scrapped with the remaining ones in real danger of meeting the same fate.

The current situation has been described by Russian Studies scholar Stephen Cohen as being more dangerous than the Cuban Missile Crisis. The title of his most recent book is War with Russia? From Putin & Ukraine to Trump & Russiagate. This is a title well worth reflecting on as the Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces Treaty expired earlier this month and the New START (Strategic Arms Reduction Treaty), anti-ballistic missile treaty and even the Nuclear Nonproliferation Treaty may follow suit.

Rick Rozoff has been an anti-war analyst and activist for fifty years. Ran the Stop NATO website and published over 200 articles on international affairs there. Has appeared regularly on TV and radio programs in the U.S. and abroad, including RT, Press TV, the BBC and Sputnik. His articles have appeared in several world politics anthologies in the U.S. and Russia. In 2012 he participated in the only debate held ahead of a NATO summit, that in Chicago in 2012:
Rozoff gives a list the journalist that are reporting on the fake news and distortions of Russian policy as the US positions NATO ever closer to Moscow for first strike possibility, a possibility that the Russians have warned they will respond to with an unlimited first strike of their own that would include the continental United States as well as Europe. The Union of Concerned Scientists have moved their "doomsday" clock closer to midnight than it has ever been yet mainstream media fails to warn the public.
