The New American Whac-A-Mole Foreign Policy!
Just months ago, we were talking of impending conflict between China and Japan over a small group of islands in the South China Sea. Then we quickly shifted our foreign policy attention to the cauldron of conflict in Syria that has festered with increasing violence and countless refugees. Without a moment’s hesitation, soon after the splendid Sochi Olympics, Americans were directed to a conflagration in the Ukraine.
Apparently this street protest which had started months before attained a proportion of condemnation wherein the inestimable distinguished Ex Sec State Hillary Clinton made the astounding pronouncement that Russia was like Nazi Germany in ‘invading Crimea’. The world also heard the elegant profanity of a State Department Assistant Secretary of State, Victoria Nuland, utter the words on a non-encrypted cellphone, saying ”Fuck EU”.
What in God’s name is going on?
I feel that I have entered an alter-universe, unbeknownst to me or anyone with any direct historical experience in American foreign policy, where the characters are playing the childhood game of Whac-a-mole.
For those of you who may not know what Whac-A-Mole is, it entails a very sophisticated level of anger and beating strokes to hit every mole-like character that appears suddenly in front of you to ensure that the particular mole does not arise again. One must keep banging the table with a hammer and you must bang as quickly and randomly as possible. Whac-A-Mole is a childish game of useless pursuit, expressing nothing more than the ability to bang at a non-existent mole or in the case of foreign policy non-existent enemy.
Have we Americans descended so low that an Assistant Secretary of State has purposefully used profanity as a ‘diplomatic way’ of explaining American disdain for their Nato/European Allies?
Have we come to the nadir of intellectual ignorance when the esteemed ex-Senator, ex-wife of a President and most importantly the ex-Secretary of State, Hillary Rodham Clinton is so completely ignorant of the dynamics and historical facts of WWII that she compares Russia, an American Ally during WWII to the rise of the Third Reich? If she had been Sec State she would have been fired by any of the former Presidents with whom I had worked. More importantly, Hillary once again showed her opportunistic self-aggrandizement by espousing ill-conceived and dangerous concepts and ideas of war as she did in the Iraq Invasion, Afghanistan invasion, Libya Travesty and Syrian conflict.
Nothing brings out the sheer stupidity of people in power than the Whac-A-Mole game of foreign policy.
 The game shows that we, Americans, after thirty years adrift still have no viable, sustainable foreign policy that serves our collective national security interests.
 Whac-A-Mole often bears the trademark of covert operatives who without consent and advice of our congress [oops, our people] have gone AMOK and started all kinds of conflagrations around the world in order to entertain themselves at the expense of the American public and Republic.
 Whac-A-Mole shows once again that Clinton, Bush Jr, and Obama have no foreign policy and really has exhausted what little talent, if they had any.
The ClintBubamas have not demonstrated any mature leadership skills on the world stage. They act like children playing dangerous games. These so called American leaders have a childish obsession with getting our country into needless wars and squeezing meaningless pimples of geo-political agitation that garner a distorted proportion of world wide attention. Grow up! The American people are busy living constructive lives and they have had enough of such nonsense! Stop wasting our tax dollars! Cut the wasted money that we spend on Military/CIA/Contractors! Build roads, replace infrastructure and get some clean energy so our grandchildren can breathe the air and have decent water to drink!
