Is this the Nation that Fought* the Cold War?

Interesting bit I picked up through google news from The Arizona Republic:
We are a country that employs paid death squads we call contractors. I thought a contractor was a guy who remodeled your bathroom. We have gulag-like secret prisons in Eastern European countries, "show trials," and we commit torture. We don't care what the rest of the world thinks.

My question is this: If we choose to be the kind of nation that performs acts such as these, why did we fight the Cold War? -Jeff Bolerman

You know, despite the fact that we had a major world super power issuing rhetoric about burying us, despite the fact that they tried to spy on us every chance they got, despite the fact that they had thousands of nuclear missles pointed at us, the America that fought the cold war didn't puss out and give up their freedom out of the very real threat that faced them. They didn't puss out and start justifying every type of governmental power grab and rights trampling because of fear.

But then, the baby boomers aren't the ones that won the cold war, so in answer to the question posed by the above person - NO, we aren't that country. We are the America according to Baby Boomers. You like it? We're pussies now who'd hide in our own mothers wombs if we thought it would save us from terror. We'd also kill kids if we thought it would save us from terror. Hell, in Iraq we have killed kids for precisely that reason.

It sucks don't it? Being ruled by pussies who talk like they're men? Sorry about the rant and the "profanity", but I have to call it the way I see it.

Thanks for reading this rant,
