Dear Friends + Interlocutors,
Just a short note from your amateur Secretary of State [me] concerning the official Secretary of State, Antony “Blind Man” Blinken. He was on "Face the Nation" yesterday, beating the drums about Ukraine. See video below.
OMG! If there is a real world approximation of the blind leading the blind, this may be it.
One problem is, official Washington has so demonized Putin and Russia that it might be impossible to climb down. These dolts may believe their own lies and distortions, and find it necessary to blow up the planet, or maybe just half of Europe, to make a point.
Blinken is a nonentity. Biden is a cut-out. That’s a problem.
Washington’s foreign policy is dead wrong and dangerous. Wall Street looks fragile, with the Fed having run out of ammo to prop it up. If the Dollar loses it reserve currency status, which it attained thanks to The Second World War, we are headed for dystopia.
The alternative is for Washington to defuse all fake and deliberately-contrived crises world-wide, starting with Ukraine. And think about its relationship to truth and reality.
