U.S. provoking war, Gorbachev says
by UPI

MOSCOW -- The United States is intolerant of other nations acting autonomously and can longer be trusted, former Soviet President Mikhail Gorbachev said Wednesday.

In an interview with The Daily Telegraph, Gorbachev said pledges made to the world during the Cold War by the United States are no longer honored.

"The Americans promised that NATO wouldn't move beyond the boundaries of Germany after the Cold War but now half of central and Eastern Europe are members, so what happened to their promises? It shows they cannot be trusted," he said.

He criticized plans by the United States to deploy a missile defense shield in central Europe saying the measure could provoke the next Cold War, RIA Novosti reported.

"The United States cannot tolerate anyone acting independently. Every U.S. president has to have a war," he added. "I sometimes have a feeling that the United States is going to wage war against the entire world."
