Words Helpful for Once

"But let’s stop here and register the proper cautions and caveats: There has been no investigation, no conclusive proof. (And there won’t necessarily be a proper and convincing investigation, either, considering the deliberately chaotic and militarized state of eastern Ukraine these days, and Russia’s clear interests.) We shouldn’t pretend to know for certain what we don’t." —Here is the moment at which you can tell that you're reading the right piece, or at least not the wrong piece, about Ukraine, today. (Since publishing, the incriminating tapes mentioned have appeared online.)

Sure he "registers cautions and caveats" whatever the hell that means, but then proceeds to lay into the Putin conspiracies pretty thick. His support for the Iraq War (with registered cautions and caveats, of course!) was central to mitigating dissent among the Lefty Establishment. Same old same old from Remnick and crew.

Ironic, that he is so concerned about "wildly, messianic nationalists" and "neo-imperialists" with Putin, but clown boy had no such reservations back when he was pushing for the invasion of Iraq.

Also, Remnick and The New Yorker have no concerns over "wildly, messianic nationalists" and "neo-imperialists" during Israel's latest invasion of Gaza. Why not?

Depressing how this blog covers the Ukrainian issue immediately, but only addresses the Gaza crisis indirectly through lame ass app reviews.

@Lockheed Ventura Israel and Russia both have nukes.
