The Similarities between the current cold war and the actual COld War are astounding, thank you for characterizing it this way. 1) Both cold Wars had one country with a well diversified modern economy, and one with a centralized unstable economy 2) One country with boring, noncharismatic leader, the other with leaders with unlimited bragaddocio, boasts, arms displays and parades. 3) Proxy wars where each side was defeated by the proxy ( US in vietnam, soviets in afghanistan, Israel by hezbollah, Iran by western technology eg twitter) 4) Accountablity in one country, none in the other. 5) Well educated population in one, not as well educated in the other, but enough to realize that they're being swindled by their leaders.
