Ha, I only now noticed that my little bloggy is past first million of views. What do ya know. As you may have guessed already--this blog is purely a personal outlet and I deliberately do not promote it in any way. Only seldom I provide a link to specific posts when, usually, posting at Unz discussion boards. Yet, people continue to find this blog, sadly, damn advertisers do it too. I don't know, do they track blogs by number of views to insert their damn commercials? Anyhow, this blog is now a millionaire.
Per some news--a superb piece by Phil Giraldi at Unz, absolutely spot on.
The reckless calibrations employed to set American policies in other parts of the world are also playing out badly. Russia has been hounded relentlessly since the 2016 election, wasting the opportunity to establish a modus vivendi that Trump appeared to be offering in his campaign. Russian and American soldiers confront each other in Syria, where the U.S. has absolutely no real interests beyond supporting feckless Israel and Saudi Arabia in an unnecessary armed conflict that has already been lost. There is now talk of war coming from both Moscow and Washington while NATO in the middle has turned aggressive in an attempt to justify its existence. The bilateral relationship between the U.S. and Russia is now worse than it was towards the end of the Cold War while the expansion of NATO up to Russia’s doorstep has threatened the Kremlin’s vital interests without advancing any interest of the United States.
Read it, this is Phil Giraldi at his best.
