MARK WAUCK: "Our corrupt ruling class... have nothing to offer except doubling down on stupid, doubling down on the criminal use of Ukrainian lives as cannon fodder in our proxy war"
Existential Angst Of The Deep State
I’ve been sitting on a recent article by M. K. Bhadrakumar for a few days. It features MKB’s usual perceptiveness analysis, sparked by the much remarked upon Op-Ed by Robert Gates and Condi Rice that appeared in the WaPo last Saturday, titled Time is not on Ukraine’s side. By MKB’s reading, the Op-Ed signals “Biden’s Existential Angst in Ukraine”. It’s not clear to me that Zhou is capable of such deep feelings or reflections, so I choose to take the ruminations of these indubitable Deep State insiders as reflecting a crisis of confidence within the Deep State. That’s a healthy thing, for the good of the nation. Someone needs to wake up and take stock of where our corrupt ruling class has landed us. Sadly, the lack of intellectual depth of our rulers is on full display—Gates and Rice have nothing to offer except doubling down on stupid, doubling down on the criminal use of Ukrainian lives as cannon fodder in our proxy war on Russi, by sending more weapons to Ukraine. And yet they know full well that we aren’t in a position to change the inevitable outcome.
