The 1991 collapse of the Soviet Union ended the Cold War, an event described in the West as “the end of history.” Post-Soviet Russia appeared to embrace free markets and democratic elections so the West would begin to view the “new” Russia as a friend. In 2014 Russian forces invaded and annexed Crimea. A New Cold war had begun. Russia was ready for this conflict, having armed itself to the teeth with new weapons. The demise of the Soviet Union now appears to have been greatly exaggerated or, at worst, an intentional deception. Although the intelligence service of the Soviet Era, the KGB, was renamed the Federal Security Service, (its Russian acronym—FSB) it facilitated the rise of President Vladimir Putin to power, himself a former KGB official, proving the Security service from the former Soviet era was still very much in power within the “new” Russia. In The New Tactics of Global War, the authors explore what happened at the end of the Cold War and why Russia remains the number one threat to the United States. The moves and counter-moves of the present crisis stem from a long-running deception game. The authors investigate this game, allowing the reader to understand the “mind of the enemy.” “And behold a second beast, like a bear, and it raised itself up on one side, and it had three ribs in the mouth of it between the teeth of it: and they said unto it, Arise, devour much flesh.” Daniel 7:5
