A new cold war is increasingly being mentioned in the press. Some even think the US is already losing at it.
This new cold war isn’t likely to be the same as the previous one with a lack of allies and an abundance of economic ties leading to different actions and policy.
It does seem to be more about fragile egos and nationalist paranoia. It also has a lot to do with international computer networks and the flow of information. Due to that, this war is going to be far less predictable.
