it counts, in the higher levels of the U.S. government, the most
powerful positions are filled by fools. What other conclusion can be
drawn when every major policy move is foolish, destructive and
dangerous? Are we supposed to believe that American meddling and
aggressions in Iraq, Afghanistan, Libya and Syria accomplished something
desired by these men and women and something beneficial to Americans?
Are we supposed to believe that the management of the American economy
has benefited this country, or that the surveillance state is a big
plus? Are we supposed to believe that the huge spending financed by a
huge national debt is producing dividends for America?
And now, are we supposed to believe that confronting Russia over
Ukraine, seeking to bring down Putin, and stirring up trouble inside
Russia is going to produce a new set of institutions and leaders in
Russia that is more beneficial to us? Are we supposed to believe that
confronting China will do the same? Or that spreading American forces
throughout Africa will bring us peace?
Why should we expect anything but bad results from American meddling
and confrontations when that is all that they have produced for many
years now? Why should we not conclude that the country is being run by
ignorant and naive fools or jackasses, who keep beating their heads and
ours against one wall after another? How stupid are they to be imbued
with confused ideas about remaking the world and whose methods for doing
so cluelessly produce one debacle after another?
