Dear Swing Voters,— David Rothkopf (@djrothkopf) October 21, 2022
It is time to get off the fence. The election is nearing. It is time to tune out media narratives and do some hard calculations on your own. It is time to weigh the consequences of a GOP victory in November.
Putin must go. There can be no justice or peace for Ukraine, no security for the region & the world, no future for Russia until he is out of office. Victory for Ukraine, enduring sanctions key to this but Russians must make it happen. My weekend column. https://t.co/FoBwDZL0Fn— David Rothkopf (@djrothkopf) October 2, 2022

No sense of American foreign policy!
“President Biden is criticizing Republicans who are threatening to cut off aid to Ukraine if they win control of the House in next month’s midterm elections, arguing that they are displaying a fundamental misunderstanding of U.S. foreign policy.
“They said that if they win they’re not likely to fund, to continue to fund Ukraine,” the president said at a political fundraiser in Philadelphia on Thursday night. “These guys don’t get it.”“It’s a lot bigger than Ukraine,” he added. “It’s Eastern Europe. It’s NATO. It’s really serious, serious consequential outcomes. … They have no sense of American foreign policy.”
Russia, we’re coming!
Western liberals are at war with Russia, not us.
Millions of Americans have never supported this stupid war and its devastating economic fallout. Trump was impeached by these bloodthirsty people for hesitating to arm Zelensky. In hindsight, I regret failing to fully grasp that significance of that episode.
“The GOP cavalry is coming! Hang on Vlad!” is the clear message being sent by Republican leaders like House Minority Leader (who might very soon be Speaker of the House) Kevin McCarthy. In an interview with Punchbowl News, McCarthy said …
After all, withholding aid to Ukraine was a signature decision of the leader of the Republican Party, former President Donald Trump (even if the way he did it was illegal and led to his first impeachment.) …
That said, given the GOP’s history of support for Putin, and the rumblings that Republican leaders may seek to dial back our aid for Ukraine at precisely the wrong moment—it’s entirely possible that Putin may get the last laugh, thanks in great part to having opened that second front in the West.”
My preferred foreign policy is not blundering into disastrous and expensive wars in remote parts of Eurasia over places that no one here cares enough about to ever visit.
Note: The interventions in Iraq, Syria, Libya and Afghanistan were bad enough, but nowhere near as threatening as this war in Ukraine which was unleashed by crazed Russiagaters.
