COMMENT TO AN ARTICLE BY ANDREW BACEVICH IN AMERICAN CONSERVATIVE – SUBMITTED BUT NOT POSTED

 

“America: ‘Indispensable Nation’ No More

“Rather than seeing ‘far into the future,’ American elites have struggled to discern what might happen next week”.

 

A very good piece indeed.

I think it summarizes something which sadly few Americans in power ever take into account.

After all, when all you do is scrabble and claw for power in an elite group which itself only scrabbles and claws for power in the world – a concise description of the work of America’s ruling power establishment – there isn’t a lot of time or room left for things like principles or even decency.

Madeleine Albright is a true American grotesque, and her words at various times – pompous, chilling, and even threatening – tell us all we need to know about her character. Actually, the words were a rather amazing feat of self-revelation by someone who likely truly believed she was summarizing something larger and worthier.

She was granted a center-stage role in America for a while in exchange for ugly words and indecent behavior being presented in the guise of a grandmotherly figure.

A total creature of the American power establishment, one lacking judgment, wisdom, and morality.

She is a perfect example of the old tales about those who sell their souls to the devil.
