COMMENT POSTED TO AN ARTICLE BY VICTOR KOTSEV IN RUSSIA INSIDER

 

“Peacenik” is far too strong a word. I can’t imagine anyone really thinking this flag-waving American Oligarch is going to be anything remotely like that.

What thoughtful people do see is a man whose words suggest he is open to diminution of America’s intense and blood-soaked aggression of recent years, and if that proves true, the world will be a better place.

A Peace Prize winner and a wannabe first woman President have left the American military-security establishment totally raging out of control, threatening and killing people in many lands.

I don’t know whether their behavior was sheer incompetence in leadership or shared viciousness. It doesn’t really matter.

What we do have a chance for some hard-headed sense and decency in policy, much as we see with President Putin.

The American imperial reality is not going to disappear any time soon, but that does not mean it has to act like a savage bully at all times in all places.
