The Russia-Georgia conflict has brought to the surface a long-term U.S. strategy – shared by Republican and Democratic foreign policy experts alike – to encircle Russia and prevent its reemergence as a rival power.

In hitting back against Georgia’s attack on South Ossetia, Moscow was, in effect, declaring that the post-Cold War pattern of Russia acceding to American encroachments had gone too far.

Now, as foreign policy analyst Pepe Escobar reports, a new Cold War looms with hawkish Republican John McCain taking the lead in denouncing Russia, but with Democrat Barack Obama tagging along.
