Russia Is Going Back to Cuba - First Time Since Soviet Era!

For the first time in a long while, Russian warships were sent to Cuba. The speculation is that Moscow wanted to send a message to Washington about America's actions in the recent Georgia conflict. Are we headed for a new Cold War? Is the Monroe Doctrine still in effect? If so, would America be able to enforce it at this point?
Russian warships pulled into Havana yesterday (December 19, 2008) for the first time since the end of the Soviet era in the last port of call on an expedition designed to send a message to Washington about the military reach of Moscow.
