COMMENT POSTED TO AN ARTICLE BY VICTOR KOTSEV IN RUSSIA INSIDER
"Peacenik" is far too strong a word. I can't imagine anyone really thinking this flag-waving American Oligarch is going to be anything remotely like that.
What thoughtful people do see is a man whose words suggest he is open to diminution of America's intense and blood-soaked aggression of recent years, and if that proves true, the world will be a better place.
A Peace Prize winner and a wannabe first woman President have left the American military-security establishment totally raging out of control, threatening and killing people in many lands.
I don't know whether their behavior was sheer incompetence in leadership or shared viciousness. It doesn't really matter.
What we do have a chance for some hard-headed sense and decency in policy, much as we see with President Putin.
