Foreign Policy as Emotional Spasm
It is nauseating to witness the UK in the form of bumbling Borris playing the tired and cliched poodle to the US in cravenly falling behind Trump and his emotionalist response in Syria in an Iraq Blair Bush Groundhog Day routine. Has nothing been learned from the Iraq fiasco. Not I guess when foreign policy is dictated by leaders who appear to be suffering from acute Alzheimers disease.At least there was something approaching an ideology when Reagan was in the Whitehouse.Now there is nothing,a moral and intellectual vacuum which can only embolden the enemy and inspire new outrages in the full knowledge that they will be met by nothing more than a momentary blind tantrum accompanied with pious plattitudes about God's children.
