I wonder whether we’d be where we are today if the US, Britain and others hadn’t constantly attacked Russia since just after WWII.

Summary of the meeting:

Blinken pointed at Lavrov with his ruler-based international order and said: “At the end of this ruler there’s a no-goodnik world destabilizer.”

Lavrov quickly retorted…. “OK but could you be a bit more specific about which end?”

Blinken, being the natural born salesman he is, demonstrates to his European allies the benefits of the ruler-based international order in the hands of a skilled American statesman, readily bent to fit any agenda or occasion:comment image

Rather effeminate looking hands Blinken has. Not a working man, for sure. Hormone therapy?

I know very many hard working women who, presumably, all have “effeminate looking” hands.

It is indeed, a cultural conundrum.

is there such a thing as a “skilled American statesman?” I can’t think of one.

Skilled in the art of war, like that flying muppet in Braveheart.
