Rivitalising Cold War ties or persisting in hypocricy?

Al-Jazzera reports that the Russian president Dmitry Medvedev is set to arrive in Caracas for talks with Hugo Chavez and that this is “seen as revitalising Cold War-era ties”. Although we are not informed by whom this is seen in such a light, the question I have is would the same commentators also characterise British Prime Minster’s regular visits to the US as “maintaining Cold War era ties” or French President’s visits to Germany as “reinforcing Cold War era ties”?  Whoever these commentators are, it seems that the idea of a multipolar world is disagreeable to them.
