COMMENT POSTED TO AN ARTICLE BY MICHAEL FUCHS IN THE GUARDIAN (ONLY TO BE REMOVED BY OVERZEALOUS EDITORS)

“Rex Tillerson was disastrous for the US. Mike Pompeo may be worse”

 

“Rex Tillerson will go down as one of the worst secretaries of state in US history.”

In my view, that is a completely insupportable assertion.

I could easily come up with alternative, more worthy candidates for the title, starting with Hillary Clinton, who, for example, the great Seymour Hersh told us oversaw the movement of limited quantities of nerve agent from the murdered Qaddafi’s stocks to the plug-uglies trying to topple and divide Syria.

Tillerson was important because he was one of Trump’s only intelligent and relatively decent appointments. A lot of genuinely horrible people have been appointed by this president.

I believe the event actually deciding the Great Orange One’s decision was Trump’s apparent intention to renounce the immensely important Iran Nuclear Agreement.

Every sensible Western leader has advised Trump not to do this.

Every world expert on such matters has said Iran scrupulously abides by the terms and kept their word.

I am fairly certain Tillerson was on the side of reason.

But Donald Trump at this time appears almost under the spell of Netanyahu who has always detested the agreement.

I fear greatly we are seeing the opening moves for war with Iran, something which will be a terrifying and pointless event, only exploding our already unstable world into more destruction and more hatred.
