    Since the Fall of the Soviet Union

    Here's a question: do you think that the world is a more dangerous place since the fall of the Soviet Union?

    Re: Since the Fall of the Soviet Union

    Due primarily to bad leadership, corruption, and the decline of reason humanity is drifting towards chaos.

    The answer: Yes, of course.
    At some point, this practice of denunciation being insuperable and due process just an irritant and a useless antiquity, like an appendix — as it has been in the Weinstein and Moore cases — will have to stop, if the U.S. wishes to retain any credibility as a society of laws<<<<<<Conrad Black

    Neither.

    The East-West conflict did a good job of dominating international politics in a manner that the hundreds of third world conflicts and disputes lost amid the struggle against international communism. The fall of the Soviet Union simply ushered into a new era of conflicts and struggles. When the current world order is over, a new epoch will begin, just as violent as the last.

    That is quite trivial. Between the implosion of the Soviet and now the world was much safer. In 2005 it looked as if an increased level of security for the populations of all countries was materializing. Obama and Putin have made this less probably with a little help from our friends.

    It is sad. But that seems Putin's main trauma that he wants to heal it at everyone's expense.

    He wants to rebuild the Russian Empire.

    This is completely predictable.
