The Obama administration keeps them around for some reason.
“Where’s H L Mencken when we need him? No one ever lost money underestimating the mendacity of the Pentagon/NATO/CIA/State Department system. Especially now, when Ukrainian policy seems to have been subcontracted by the Obama administration to the likes of neo-con Victoria “F**k the EU” Nuland, married to Dubya darling neo-con Robert Kagan.”
Carnival in Crimea, by Pepe Escobar, Asia Times, February 28, 2014 (no less)
Great, just great. Obviously Obama hasn’t cleaned house thoroughly enough in the past five years. God help us if the neocons are in this.
Why is Pepe Escobar the only one who ever knows what the hell is going on in the world? Why is that? This article and even the comments are worth reading before you decide to decide what you think about this mess in Ukraine. Maybe Victoria Nuland has been taking lessons from April Glaspe.
Oh, and by the way, if Crimea goes back to Russia, are they going to deport the Sunni Crimean Tatars back to Central Asia again? Just wondering.
