John le Carre:
America has entered one of its periods of historical madness, but this is the worst I can remember: worse than McCarthyism, worse than the Bay of Pigs and in the long term potentially more disastrous than the Vietnam War.
It's 1938 all over again. Bombings in Israel, Malaysia, the Philippines. Insane tyrannical despots in North Korea and Iraq intimidating the world. Unfriendly allies in Germany, France and Belgium. Slavery and baby rapes in Africa. 9/11 in the States. Deadly Ricin found ready to distribute in apartments in the UK. And WE'RE mad?
Africa? Since when does the uSA care about Africa? And Ricin in the UK? And if I remember correctly about 1938 (or was it rather 1939?), not that I was alive back then, it was the US that didn't want to get involved in the European shenanigans.
What a giant piece of BUSHSHIT. And yes, the US are mad.
