I wasn't around during the Cold War, and this may sound naive, but I don't get it. The war in Afghanistan..they attacked us. They don't like us, their extremists...etc etc. We went to war with the Nazi's because they wanted everyone to look alike and call each other Hans. But why would Russia and/or China ever want to go to war with us? It would not accomplish anything. Further, why the hell are they backing Iran? Doing so, again, is stirring up the pot. The words, "why can't we all just get along" does not apply to those who want to throw planes into buildings. It does, however, apply to those nations like Russia and China who seem to be a bit more "developed" and understanding that a WWIII would do no one good.
