The American UN ambassador is a gross hypocrite. It is painful to watch her egregious antics. She blames Russia for America's foolish foreign and military policy. How duplicitous is that? What everyone already knows but US leaders are loath to admit, is that the US has lost whatever soft power it used to have. There are many reasons for that but the Bush League was basically responsible for it. Once a nation starts the killing, it finds that talking is of no further use, it becomes all about bombs, missiles, drones and as many casualties you can create as possible. That, the US is very good at, murder and mayhem are its new paradigm! Unfortunately, the loss of soft power ushers in a loss of imperial strength throughout the World and that is exactly what is occurring right now! There are two main protagonists opposed to American exceptionalism, indispensability and unlimited control and they simply will no longer stomach it. Those days are long gone and the very foolish American politicos had better learn that quickly or they will all be nuclear burnt toast!
