Mr. Gelb’s essay is welcome, in the face of the predictable Republican/American Likudnik hysterics. But Mr. Gelb fails to mention the fact that if anyone has upset the nuclear balance of power in the ‘Middle East’ it is Israel, too inconvenient to his almost cheer leading of the agreement? Or his inability to describe/diagnose the Obama Policy Schizophrenia: peace overtures to Iran in defiance of the purchased loyalty of mad dog Netanyahu, and a proxy war with Russia in Ukraine. Adding to this is America inability to husband the actions of ‘serial defaulter’ Germany, in the person of Merkel and her IMF,EU confederates, attempting to rescue that monetary union from itself.

One can only hope that the Republican Old Guard will cede leadership to the fresh face of Sen. Tom Cotton, instead of the same tied parade of McCain, McConnell,Boehner.


About stephenkmacksd

Rootless cosmopolitan,down at heels intellectual;would be writer. 'Polemic is a discourse of conflict, whose effect depends on a delicate balance between the requirements of truth and the enticements of anger, the duty to argue and the zest to inflame. Its rhetoric allows, even enforces, a certain figurative licence. Like epitaphs in Johnson’s adage, it is not under oath.'
