How do we end the new Cold War?

Ronald Reagan , and Mikhail Gorbachev 
ended the Cold War . Now Obama has ruined 20 years of hard work of these two former leaders. 
Question : How do we end the new Cold War? How to the defuse the already tensions between the United States of America and the Russian Federation . There were lots of "hints" from the Russian side that gives a clear answer to our American politics . The first answer came from Russian President *** Vladimir Putin. Putin said that " Russian's don't hate Americans , only the policies of it's leaders." I can see why Russia is reacting to the way our American government has been acting lately. The Beefing up of NATO forces and secret American "operations" of troops in Latvia and Estonia , and American gun boats in the Black Sea . (5)>  What is the message our misguided American leaders are sending the world and the Russia? It scares me  right now , we had reports of Russian "patrols" coming close to American shores in the Caribbean , and California coats . THIS HAS NEVER BEEN SINCE THE 1980's under Reagan ! Well Americans we deserve it , just why are we conducting military practice drills close to the Russian boarders , it's a stupid show of aggression towards a country that has done us no harm . Why do we have such idiots in Washington D.C. ? Recently John Kerry made  some remarkable  and yest stupid statements to Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov  who said Wednesday that Secretary of State John Kerry told him to “ignore” recent statements by President Obama, which placed Russia’s involvement in Ukraine on a par with global threats such as IS ( Islamic State ) terrorism and Ebola. I am seeing that our government can't make a straight statement without misspeaking sending the world into a "dangerous spiral ".  Speaking in the State Duma, the lower house of parliament, Lavrov told lawmakers he had raised Obama’s comments with Kerry, who told him to “ignore” the criticism. (Russian media variously translated his words as “ignore,” “don’t pay any attention,” “pay it no mind” or “forget about it.”) Lavrov suggested that Kerry had told him to ignore the criticism because at the time the U.S. was looking for Russian cooperation in other areas, notably in relation to North Korea and the Iranian nuclear talks. Our American  diplomatic reasoning seems to be flip flopping under the Obama administration . EVEN warned  Former Soviet President Mikhail Gorbachev told the BBC's Newsnight programme that Mr Obama and Mr Putin must meet. "They must strike up a conversation that will lead to the improvement of relations and stop the things which are happening now".  This was in 2013 . Gorbachev also recently called Obama (1)>  " The lamest of (3) > the lame duck"Commenting on the recent G20 summit in Australia, Gorbachev said he was disappointed in Obama and that he 'thought better' of the American leader. However Obama weakness is vary obvious , and dangerously confusing to the Russians who are trying to make sense of john Kerry's (2) > warlike ravings about the  Ukrainian problem . Gorbachev had previously expressed hope that shared challenges, such as the Ebola epidemic and the fight against the IS militants, as well as environmental and economic threats, would bring Russia and the West closer together. "In the face of shared challenges, we can again find a common language. It won't be easy but there is no other way," Gorbachev told Rossiyskaya Gazeta ahead of the fall of the Berlin Wall anniversary. RIGHT now I just don't know how long its going to last with the  (4)> Obama administration which is taking a schizoid approach with Russia . I as a American don't want to go back to the COLD WAR days , I know that the Berlin Wall came down for a reason and Russia is vary much in it's culture vary much now resembles American like values. Russia and the West ( America ) have so much in common , why ruin it? Why unravel it .............................

Making the traditional concept of virtue a recent but recurring theme of his presidency, Putin has of late criticized the West for being decadent and godless. As the Washington Times reported this past Tuesday, “‘Many Euro-Atlantic countries have moved away from their roots, including Christian values,’ Russian President Vladimir Putin said in a recent keynote speech. ‘Policies are being pursued that place on the same level a multi-child family and a same-sex partnership, a faith in God and a belief in Satan. This is the path to degradation.’” (1)> "Obama is a lame duck. One must not finish the job in such a mediocre way. He just decided to throw accusations around. He will be of no avail any more, unfortunately. I've thought better of him," the former leader of the USSR told Rusnovosti radio.Gorbachev, who is praised around the world as a great advocate of democracy, used the American term - meaning an elected official, approaching the end of his time in office - when talking about Obama's comments at the G20 summit. (2)> I recollect John Kerry spewing that "Russia will lose...." and falsely accusing Russia for creating the  Ukrainian situation while ignoring the "facts" that the Ukrainian people overthrew their  own government , incited a civil war with Russians already living in the eastern part of Ukraine.   (3)> Gorbachev's "lame duck" label was not the only duck jibe to be received by Obama after his speeches at the summit. US liberal senator Ian Macdonald called him a "lame duck of a president" over his stance on climate change.Former US president Bill Clinton recently encouraged Obama to ignore the "lame duck" comments and get on with the job. (4)> Here is an example of dangerous political rhetoric from President Obama , American's should not ignore when our nation's leaders speak (misspeak ) , and lie and twist facts . Here is a Obama flub. At a private Democratic fundraiser in Chicago on Oct. 20, Obama listed “the situation in Ukraine and Russia’s aggression” together with the IS threat and Ebola as reasons why Americans were “anxious.”And when he addressed the U.N. a month earlier, he named the same three issues – Russia, Ebola and IS – as causes of “a pervasive unease in our world.As we gather here, an outbreak of Ebola overwhelms public health systems in West Africa, and threatens to move rapidly across borders. Russian aggression in Europe recalls the days when large nations trampled small ones in pursuit of territorial ambition,” he said. “The brutality of terrorists in Syria and Iraq forces us to look into the heart of darkness.” Take note "Russian aggression in Europe " . Just where ? One of Obama's flaws is that he is an ideological heavyweight without the stones to back up his rhetoric. He delivers a mean speech, but never when it really counts. (5)> President Obama famously attempted a “reset” of relations with Russia, with some success: The New START treaty was an important achievement, and there was increased quiet cooperation on a number of regional issues. But then Congress’s penchant for minding other people’s business when it cannot cope with its own began to take its toll. The Magnitsky Act, which singled out Russia for human rights violationsas if there were none of comparable gravity elsewhere, infuriated Russia’s rulers and confirmed with the broader public the image of the United States as an implacable enemy.The sad fact is that the cycle of dismissive actions by the United States met by overreactions by Russia has so poisoned the relationship that the sort of quiet diplomacy used to end the Cold War was impossible when the crisis in Ukraine burst upon the world’s consciousness. It’s why 43 percent of Russians are ready to believe that Western actions are behind the crisis and that Russia is under siege.
