Left-wing USers need to call tough-talking Biden to order
His first promise was that he would stop the Tromp approach of cuddling dictators and rebuffing the allies. That he’s doing.
But his second promise was that he would not, as Trump, go to verbal or actual war with nations. Rather, he would use traditional diplomacy and seek international partnership to reign in wicked regimes. So not.
- He’s called Russia’s Putin a murderer.
- And now, his Secretary of State goes into a live confrontation on camera with China (after he says he wants diplomacy).
The rationale for this tough talk is no doubt “We’re saying the truth.” But that’s not how you do diplomacy.
(Talking about what is reasonable and reality on camera with a bloody dictatorship like China is just too naive to believe. What was he thinking?)
We know that Trump just winged it. But this is no better.
Putin is no dummy. He knows that Biden lost the dispute already when he opened his mouth maligning his Russian counterpart. So, the nationalist dictators would like a live TV debate to build on this slip and increase his international prestige by humiliating Biden further.
Left-wing USers need to speak up against this amateurish and misplaced macho direction the American Administration is taking.
I’m afraid we need to remember this when the US restarts lecturing Israel what to do for peace. Could they even be more clueless than Trump? And we thought he set a record that wouldn’t be broken in a long time.
And, now we’re at it, since when is a remark by Donald Trump jr. worthy of a headline in the Times of Israel? And then such a bigoted remark. If he would have called a woman stupid they wouldn’t have empowered the bigotry by multiplying it throughout the world, but they do when he says that a trip by an older man means neurological problems and dementia?
