And I love it. It is from his latest on Europe's and the US' plight.
Amazing. The Politico authors blame Putin for what the United States and Europe did to themselves. I can hear Europe’s lament, “It is another fine mess you’ve gotten us into America.” I am amused by the European official’s complaint that the United States is profiting at Europe’s expense. When I was working at the CIA as an analyst, we had a phrase for this kind of Captain Obvious moment — we called it “No Shit Analysis”, NSA for short. The coming days and weeks will see the recriminations and resentment towards the United States grow and spread throughout Europe. This will make it more difficult for Europe to support the war in Ukraine at the very time that Ukraine’s needs for foreign aid and military support will increase. While Europe correctly perceives that some sectors of the U.S. economy are raking in profits at the expense of Europe, the economy of the United States is showing clear signs of a retracting economy on multiple fronts.
A superb piece, which also focuses on what really matters--real economy. Do they even know what No Shit Analysis is in the White House?
