German Foreign Minister and Former MI6 Boss: US-Russia Tensions Now More Dangerous than During the Cold War

(Before It's News)

Germany’s Foreign Minister – Frank-Walter Steinmeier – wrote earlier this month that tension between the US and Russia is worse than during the Cold War:

It’s a fallacy to think that this is like the Cold War. The current times are different and more dangerous.

The head of Britain’s intelligence service, MI6 – Sir John Sawyers – agreed yesterday:

We are moving into an era that is as dangerous, if not more dangerous, as the cold war because we do not have that focus on a strategic relationship between Moscow and Washington.

This is even more dramatic when you realize that the U.S. and Soviets came within seconds of all-out nuclear war on numerous occasions during the Cold War. And only the courage of U.S. and Soviet individuals to say no when their superiors told them to fire nuclear weapons – in the face of mistaken readings – saved the planet from nuclear war.

And many experts warn that we’re drifting towards nuclear war today.
