COMMENT POSTED TO AN ARTICLE IN RUSSIA INSIDER
Response to another reader’s comment:
find it very interesting how the Russian ministers, diplomats, and Heads, outshine by light years, all of the U.S.'s government's officials. It's downright embarrassing...
Yes, this is true.
But there is a genuine reason for the fact.
Many American appointments simply reflect the pure arrogance of power.
There is a feeling that America has no need to genuinely explain things to its inferiors "out there," just to keep putting out its " official line."
The people who are best at doing that rather tedious and ungratifying task tend not to be particularly interesting or thoughtful or charming.
