More pathological poppycock from Mike Pompeo and President Bolton. Below Caitlin Johnstone rips into both for their recent statements about the election of Maduro in Venezuela which Pompeo says is "illegitimate", despite being widely accepted by the rest of the world as being a perfectly legal election. The hypocrisy is breathtaking. Johnstone articulates in her article what is an astonishingly arrogant attitude to the rest of the world: “What is the difference between the behavior of the United States, which remains far and away the single worst offender in foreign election meddling on the planet, and what Russia is accused of having done in 2016? According to a comment made by former CIA Director James Woolsey last year, it’s that the US interferes in foreign democracies “for a very good cause.”” The lack of honesty and reality in that foregoing statement by Woolsey is also breathtaking. The savvy Johnstone goes on to ridicule this dumbest of dumb hyperbole and hits the nail on the head in regard to the mindset being applied. It is equivalent in its madness to that old saw from the Vietnam war which stated: “we had to destroy the village to save it” (attributed to an unidentified US Army officer). https://caitlinjohnstone.com/2019/0...-destroying-the-world-the-bad-guys-might-win/ Unless or until this mad hatter mindset gets erased from the body politic and the media of America, the war party will continue its blood sucking way, imo.
