France and Britain are neutralized. Central Europe is happily subjected. The southern flank in the Balkans is almost settled. Here we go again. But this new post-modern offensive is waged not with howitzers or tanks or Zeppelins or U-boats, but with people power, and civil-society organizations, and foreign politicians openly intervening in other countries’ internal affairs, and little flags, and dim, sheep-like TV reporters taking what they see at face value. And it is also waged with referendums and unmarked uniforms and telephone intercepts. Instead of the Guns of August, we have U.S. Assistant Secretary of State Victoria Nuland handing out cookies to the Kiev crowd, which later oh-so-democratically drives the elected president out of office and replaces him with someone more acceptable to Washington and Brussels.
