At least 99% of the US establishment is ardently pro-war. If you’re in favor of dumping billions of $$$ in high-grade weaponry into an active war zone, you’re in favor of the ensuing warfare. War is the one thing that always unites them, despite their fake partisan differences— Michael Tracey (@mtracey) February 28, 2022
Good comment on Hanania's new Substack on his excellent Ukraine predictions. https://t.co/yrMRnVPkHu— Anatoly Karlin (??,??) (@akarlin0) February 28, 2022
Mass Twitterization has greatly increased Western policy haphazardness and consequently, escalation risks. https://t.co/lbDWIrbJ2D pic.twitter.com/QuCVtBeAkA
We are not in World War III.
The political establishment in Washington is starting World War III.
“For many people, watching the Russian invasion of Ukraine has felt like a series of “He can’t be doing this” moments. Russia’s Vladimir Putin has launched the largest ground war in Europe since the Second World War. It is, quite literally, mind-boggling.
That’s why I reached out to Fiona Hill, one of America’s most clear-eyed Russia experts, someone who has studied Putin for decades, worked in both Republican and Democratic administrations and has a reputation for truth-telling, earned when she testified during impeachment hearings for her former boss, President Donald Trump.
I wanted to know what she’s been thinking as she’s watched the extraordinary footage of Russian tanks rolling across international borders, what she thinks Putin has in mind and what insights she can offer into his motivations and objectives. …
Hill spent many years studying history, and in our conversation, she repeatedly traced how long arcs and trends of European history are converging on Ukraine right now. We are already, she said, in the middle of a third World War, whether we’ve fully grasped it or not. …”
How is that return to normalcy going?
Did anyone think that Joe Biden would be steering us into World War III by March?
Note: The tweet about how the groupthink of the infamous Acela Corridor Twitter Bubble is driving the conflict and driving radical changes in policy hit the target.
