Secretary of State Rex Tillerson and President Trump
By Michael S. Rozeff
From what I read that the new Secretary of State has been saying, he doesn’t know zilch about Russian politics or diplomacy. This isn’t surprising since his career has been in the oil business. I think he’s going to be a disaster in this political post. He should go back to the oil business.
He’s talking down to the Russians. He’s telling then to drop Assad. He acts as if Russia doesn’t have an interest in Syria and the U.S. gets to dictate. He’s smearing them. He acts as if he’s certain that Syria loaded chemical weapons with either Russian knowledge or Russia looking the other way.
Tillerson acts as if chemical weapons are more important than U.S.-Russia relations. They’re not.
If I were a blunt Russian and not having to restrain myself because I was a diplomat, I’d tell Tillerson to take a hike and get out of my face. The man’s remarks and attitude are irksome.
McMaster is a dangerous jerk who should be run out of town. With all the innocent people that our government has killed and all the countries it has wrecked and is now wrecking, he has the audacity to say this:
“I think what we should do is ask Russia, how could it be, if you have advisers at that airfield, that you didn’t know that the Syrian air force was preparing and executing a mass murder attack with chemical weapons.”
This guy I’d tell to go to hell, and be thinking of worse expletives. I have another reason. He’s a warmongering idiot. Not only is he accusing Russia, he’s now extending the bombing message as a general threat to Assad: “but it was to be a very strong signal to Assad and his sponsors that the United States cannot stand idly by as he is murdering innocent civilians.” In other words, he’s committing the U.S. to go to war against Assad!
Trump sits atop this heap of dung-heads. He put ’em there.
