Russia is starting a new Cold War, with threat to Baltic states (Finland?)

CBS produced a rather frightening look at the “new Cold War” tonight on 60 minutes.  There was a chess-piece-like simulation of how a ground war with NATO would go if Russia were to decide to attack the former Baltic states that had been republics in the Old Soviet Union.   There is also the possibility on both sides to use tactical nuclear weapons with relatively low impacts on nearby civilians (that is hard to imagine – what about the fallout?)  The basic link is here. An African-American Air Force staff general was asked about Putin, whom he saw as an “opportunist”.
