The State Department Is Now Run by Foaming-At-The-Mouth Warmongers

“The State Department now seems to be a combination of true-believing neocons along with their liberal-interventionist followers…”

Whatever happened to diplomats being diplomats?
Over the past several decades, the U.S. State Department has deteriorated from a reasonably professional home for diplomacy and realism into a den of armchair warriors possessed of imperial delusions, a dangerous phenomenon underscored by the recent mass“dissent” in favor of blowing up more people in Syria.

Some 51 State Department “diplomats” signed a memo distributed through the official “dissent channel,” seeking military strikes against the Syrian government of Bashar al-Assad whose forces have been leading the pushback against Islamist extremists who are seeking control of this important Mideast nation.

    This article is largely bullshit, dancing around the issue! Did I really see no mention of Russia? Barely a passing reference to Israel–the 800-pound gorilla in the MidEast room? Let’s have a look at the “list of 51”: how many will have Arab-based names, how many Jewish-cum-Zionist?

Is WashDC “Zionist Israel-Occupied territory” (via the “entangling alliance”) or “Saudi-Occupied territory”? I don’t minimize the evil of Saudi Arabia in recent times, but come on….

    Viva Syria! Viva Palestine! (Palestine Is Still The Issue!)

    • I have not read Hunter’s article, but I think you make a good point, Robert. I think a lot of writers who are very bold about criticizing the US government suddenly get very timid when it comes to criticizing Israel, or more precisely Jewish power. And I think Parry is one example of such. But that being said, I also think Parry makes a good point when he says the people at the State Department have come to believe their own propaganda. I made a similar point myself in an article about a week ago:
