Karen Kwiatkowski treats the government and those who pull its strings with what they deserve: very little respect. From Kwiatkowski at lewrockwell.com:
We hear there are two faces of US foreign policy, and that’s why it appears hypocritical.
There is just one face, one outlook. It is the face of Avril Haines, current Director of National Intelligence – and I will pause here for the laughtrack. Not only is there something called national intelligence… it has a Director? How could we have known?
Avril is accurately quoted below, from a presentation on Ukraine and how well it’s going, by none other than a government-allied fact checker:
We perceive a disconnect between Putin’s near-term military objectives in this area and his military’s capacity, a kind of mismatch between his ambitions and what the military is able to accomplish,..
This “mythdetector” piece was written to correct a separate Pravda “misinterpretation” of the US Director of National Intelligence. Haines’ actual speech, like the warmongering former Secretary Mike Pompeo’s linked above, are excellent examples of pot and kettle, a sociopathic inability for self-awareness and self-reflection, with a bit of bull-in-china-shop exuberance, all in one.
We on the other hand, people of the world and half of Americans over the age of 10, perceive that there is a real disconnect between the US government’s near-term military objectives, and our woke, wasteful, and wan corporate military system. We also perceive a mismatch between US government ambitions and the reality of an already-emerged multipolar world.
