We should highly question the mental stability of a president of the United States who would lie about whether the United States had been on the verge of starting “World War III” with another state possessing nuclear weapons.

How many times during my overseas career did I see autocrats declare states of emergency to circumvent the law and mess with the opposition parties? More than I can count.

Want a national emergency...how about a country rapidly going bankrupt because it's richest companies and citizens grew so powerful they got themselves effectively exempted from paying taxes and left all the burden on the middle class and poor who couldn't afford it.

Strange of to ask the Europeans to leave the Iran nuclear deal. Will of course not happen. And is it really in the US interest to force Iran to resume advanced nuclear activities? Or is this a search for a casus belli?

Angela Merkel was on fire! Her speech had force and conviction as seldom before. A tour de force on the global issue and a strong plea for partnerships and multilateralism.

Trump praises China for executing drug dealers even though: 1. China has no due process. 2. Most governments are turning away from the death penalty. 3. Human rights law limits the death penalty at most to the worst crimes such as murder, not mere drugs.

What an amazing woman. Her warnings about the consequences of a peace deal with the Taliban should be heeded.

French philosopher Alain Finkielkraut was attacked today in Parais. The nicest thing they said to him was “Go back to Tel Aviv! Zionist piece of shit!” ⬇️ “The worst anti-Semitic violence in France since the Second World War.”

Angela Merkel’s extraordinary defense of democracy, NATO and Europe in Munich today was an absolute rejection of Trump’s America First policies. Every U.S. President since FDR has been leader of the West. Now that leader is Merkel.
