"And by the way, you can’t count on the United States to keep its word in the future.” (John Feffer)
The United States has broken each and every treaty it ever made with the aboriginal peoples. I am not sure what the stats are for non-aboriginal treaties ?
But does that matter ?
I don’t think so. Credibility = zero.
Now - mutual advantage is more dependable.
But the worth of one’s word, as applied to the USA - give me a break !
As for turns on foreign policy - well - I actually prefer this administration’s way of demonstrating how chaotic things are actually done. Some of the smoke and mirrors, and fine talk - who needs it.
Real honesty - now that would be novel. A real discussion between the people and their elected representatives - out in the open - for all to see.
Since this has never been tried - maybe it would work.
As far as a “dangerous new era of foreign policy” - I can hardly keep from laughing out loud. Mutually Assured Destruction - four hundred plus nuclear reactors with no purpose whatever - practically impossible to decommission even if the will existed - seven hundred plus military bases thruout the world - do I need to go on ?
