This session describes the New Cold War (NCW) in Realist terms and rejects the need to invoke Divine Inspiration (see Trump/God) or Humanitarian Intervention (Obama/Trump). The NCW continues US policy signed in1950 in NSC-68 (Chomsky), i.e. containment of Russia and China and procurement of resources and wealth. The session examines hybrid warfare in Afghanistan and Iraq (economic cost 3-5 Vietnam Wars), Venezuela, Haiti (BAR), Honduras (Grandin), Libya (Forte), Syria (Hersh) and Ukraine (Mearsheimer). NCW Hybrid Warfare emphasizes The National Endowment for Democracy (Color Revolutions /The Guardian) and containment of Russia and Iran’s Pipelines and China’s New Silk Road. Thirty Years War will be a misnomer by the 2020 Convention; no Peace of Westphalia is in sight.
