Kerry Accepts the Unacceptable

“There is no alternative,” to humiliating negotiations with arrogant and vindictive Russians, say Obama Administration spokespeople when challenged. What that means is that the White House wrung its hands haplessly as its options narrowed and its choices worsened, never really thinking through one of the most basic ideas in foreign policy: while you never really can know in advance how something will turn out, if your choices get better and more numerous as time goes on, you are on the right track. If your choices keep narrowing, and the remaining options keep looking uglier, that is a pretty good sign that you are doing it wrong."
Neither of these men is capable. Hillary fits in here nicely. She was also a naif in the "difficult" structure of international relations (everything you need to know you learned in Kindergarten). From Hillary's hilarious Russian "Reset," excuse me, "Overcharge" to Kerry today this has been an incomprehensibly 8 years of fiasco, flubs, and foolishness. Tragically, the world pays the price with far less stability, more violence, and widespread war.
Do we really need to award Hillary a participation trophy of the Presidency to see what a bad idea this is?
