COMMENT POSTED TO AN ARTICLE BY MARY DEJEVSKY IN THE INDEPENDENT
"America should try to understand it [Russia] a little more"
Well, now there's the understatement of the year.
But I think you must know, Mary Dejevsky, that it is not a lack of understanding creating all the turmoil in our world. It is deliberate bad intentions.
The kind of people capable of unleashing horrors like Syria and Iraq or creating coups against democratic governments, as in Ukraine, are not the kind of people susceptible to pleas of try to be more understanding.
Asking this of America's Neocons, and their servants like Obama and Hillary, is a bit like asking a gorilla to sit up straight at the dinner table.
