Edward Luce in a Declinist Funk, a comment by Political Cynic

You sometimes have to wonder if Mr. Luce is paying attention! When he’s in his Declinist Funk even the fact that America, in the persons of Nuland and Pyatt, and organization like NATO and The Foundation for the Defense of Democracies, spent well over 5 billion dollars on the Coup in Ukraine, as of 2014, yet the situation continues to pay political dividends.  Their allies included Right Sector and Svoboda and dependable political hack ‘Yats’: recall Ms. Nuland’s notorious phone call? Perhaps that’s not quite good enough? even the continuing low level war in Ukraine won’t slake Mr. Luce’s appetite for Pax Americana, in a form that Bush II found necessary. And even Petro Poroshenko has been implicated in the Panama Papers burgeoning world wide scandal. Perhaps that reality will bring Mr. Luce out his funk?

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.' https://www.lrb.co.uk/v15/n20/perry-anderson/diary
