    One sentence in the midst of this article sums it all up.

    Itís reminiscent of the developing countries where Iíve served. The family rules everything, and the Ministry of Foreign Affairs knows nothing.
    That's it, exactly. We've become an African dictatorial state, and the right likes it this way.

    Gee, and I thought you'd show Joe, Magda, and the 6 kids.

    Nationalism, though, is not confined to Germany. It seems to be rising in Europe (Brexit, for example).

    They need to update this to "The Russian Ambassador is here for dinner."

    I'm actually kind of stunned that Huntsman was offered ambassador to Russia.

    Being a good fighter pilot is not really about hand eye coordination. it's about being able to think on your feet, well ahead of time, anticipating what is about to happen and then reacting to changes quickly.There is no BS what so ever because the facts have a way of coming home to roost very, very quickly.Oh and night missions off carriers, BFD.

    Re: US Foreign Policy: The Wogs Begin at Calais

    LOL.

    Mexican Foreign Secretary Luis Videgaray met senior White House aides without the State Department's knowledge, according to an official.
    State Department acting spokesman Mark Toner said he was "unaware" the foreign minister was in Washington.

    The secretary of state typically receives foreign diplomats during visits to the nation's capital.

    The disconnect comes amid reports that the State Department has been sidelined in matters of foreign policy.
    Ya think? The maroon is goin' it alone.
