Are international relations heading back to a bipolar situation?
Back when the Soviet Union and the US were the superpowers in the world, the US understood international relations purely in that context. With Russia’s invasion of Ossetia and Georgia, are we heading back to a two superpower world? If so, or if not, why?
And isn’t the pun just so apt? Is this mania, or depression?
