Richard Falk on Trump/Syria
Besides the light-speed attribution and deliberation processes, which are given the benefit of the doubt, Falk focuses on 2 pivots by Trump:
- the interventionist internationalism, a-la Secretary Clinton.
- the unilateral intervention mode, a-la Pres. GW Bush.
That’s quite the combination.
The proportion of jubilation to concern in the policy-making world is being determined now. I wonder what kind of mixture we will get. A totally smooth solution, NeoCon heaven? A total separation, the anti-Trump picking up the anti-war banner? Not in the cards, is it? Perhaps some kind of martini, where confused Democrats (and confused Republicans, too) maintain two distinct flavors internally?
