“Voice of America Outs US Military Families as Putin’s Unwitting Agents”

I can’t say how tiresome it is for someone of my age to be hearing the same official stupidities about Russia of sixty and seventy years ago repeated.

The words are somewhat tamer than they were in the 1950s and 1960s, but the fact that they persist at all is just mind-numbing.

The US seems almost directionless on all fronts these days, falling back on such antique stuff as fear of Russia, fear of China, concern over the Left and nationalism in Latin America, instead of just working hard to make America a better and more competitive place.

We know the words about what the gods first do to those they would destroy.
