@FT on the Blinken, Lavrov Reykjavik meeting. Political Observer comments.

Headline: US targets ‘stable, predictable’ ties with Russia

Sub-headline: Blinken and Lavrov hold first face-to-face talks of Biden presidency in Reykjavik

The untenable political fiction of ‘Russian Interference’ in the 2016 election, led Blinken and Joe to engage in dull-witted provocation against Russia. It was like Anti-Communists T.V. of the 1950’s, the small black & white screen of the era, in the Age of the Internet, looked like what it was shopworn, not to speak of its resemblance to a wobbly antique.

Why should this surprise? given Joe’s cadre of war mongers: Neo-Con Ghoul Nuland, R2P zealot Power, Susan Rice and Hillary advisor Jake Sullivan. The very signature of catastrophe!

It almost makes me long for the days of Lippmann and Kennan. But what ‘we’ have is the Alsop Brothers?




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
