Are we comforted by a Secretary of State assuring his country that current international tensions are in no way destined to be anything like a movie in which the American side emerged victorious?

Responding to the news that Russian President Vladimir Putin has put his army on alert in what seems to be a bid to influence events in Ukraine, Secretary of State John Kerry said Wednesday that the U.S. is “not looking for [a] confrontation” with Moscow.

And, in a reference to the Cold War days of the past when the rivalry between two superpowers would find its way into popular culture, Kerry tried to cool things down.

“This is not Rocky IV,” he said, during an MSNBC interview.

This should at least make Putin feel better.
