The poem “Homage to a Government” by Philip Larkin has been referenced in various publications as a type of emblem of the British disengagement from a global role. However, he highlighted a significant difference concerning the meaning of that poetry. People don’t oppose troops being returned home if they’ve determined it’s the best thing for everyone, but bringing them home just because they couldn’t afford to keep them there seems like a terrible disgrace.
What is occurring in Ukraine is humiliating for various reasons and parties involved. Still, it is now most humiliating for the L.E. school of foreign policy represented by Jake Sullivan and the J.V. team of policy controllers. Their deterrence policy seems to be founded on the notion that one may wait and wait without comprehending that deterrence must occur before such movement before the aim is achieved. If people and European partners did not want this to happen, steps should have been made in advance to project strong deterrence.
The lifting of sanctions on Nord Stream 2 allowed Putin to revert to his original plan, which he had in mind well before 2014. Yesterday’s speech was stunning for how much it revealed about his thought. It was his supervillain monologue, announcing his objectives and explaining why he was doing what he was doing.
Moreover, Biden’s idea represented a solid reaction to Putin as president was always incredible. Still, it was foolish coming from the foreign policy elite, who have been so wrong about so many things for so long. In their eyes, Donald Trump was a Russian patsy, not just because of a tale that now looks to be a blatant fabrication involving high-level Clinton friends, but also because his ideas succeeded and Biden’s failed.
It is how deadly Joe Biden and his staff have shown to be when given authority. They may very well be the government that destroyed the post-Cold War international order that had been diligently and not without fault sustained for more than three decades. They’re only getting started.
