gideon.rachman@ft.com on ‘the second cold war’: American Writer comments

Living in The United States of Amnesia I recognise all of Mr. Rachman’s arguments/talking points, so carefully collected, to make the greatest impact on the reader. In Mr. Rachman’s telling leads to the thought of how close to striking is the Dooms-Day Clock?
With due regard for the Old Cold War, inspired in part by Kennan’s ‘Long Telegram’ and its publication as the work of Mr. X – Lippmann replied to this essay. But Kennan changed his mind, he ‘evolved’.

Mr. Rachman ignores the hysterical Hillary Clinton about the 2016 election, ‘Russian Interference’  with the aid of Brennan and Clapper’s connivance, The Mueller Report that inspired yawns, Schiff and the Star Witnesses Vindman and Fiona Hill. The New Cold War was fueled by the Corporate Media, at full cry warning about those Russians, with out end until this House of Cards collapsed!

Mr. Rachman comments doesn’t even qualify as hand-wringing , its the nervous tic of a pundit, aided by some potted history, and the not quite prick of conscience.

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
