We are becoming an Evil Empire. Older people I talk to in the former Soviet bloc countries tend to talk about what’s happened to America lately with sadness and incomprehension. Inevitably they’ll say something like, “What happened to you? We used to look at you as a sign of hope.”
The modus operandi of the West’s “elites” is that it’s not the truth that matters but successfully managing the hypocrisy so that it doesn’t appear too painfully obvious.
So the US government is continuing its policy of refusing to attempt any high-level diplomatic resolutions to this war despite its public hand-wringing about the horrific violence that’s being inflicted upon the people of Ukraine.
If war ensues, there will be a great deal of blame to assign to both sides. Like World War I, no one really wants war in Europe, but no statesman has emerged to invoke diplomacy to maintain the peace.
