Chicken Race. A chicken race is two cars racing towards each other at full speed, and the first one to turn is the loser. This is the game that Russia currently plays with the West. And KGB knows very well that the West is likely to turn first.

Russia′s President Medvedev just signed a decree recognising the independence of South Ossetia and Abchasia. The Russian government is breaking Georgia apart, just as it will do with any neighbouring country that opposes them.

As the US, the EU and Nato have become tougher against Russia, they have responded even tougher. On freezing relations, Medvedev said all relations could end. On WTO membership, Prime Minister Putin said that Russia doesn′t "see any advantages from membership".

Lesson? First, realise that this is the new Russia. Second, don′t back off. They will see that as a weakness.
