The Declinist Doctrine

KERRY

We've now reached the middle stages of an essentially senile foreign policy, which is unable to remember any recent lessons, but maintains perfect memory of ancient forms -- without context.

This is how our Secretary of State is able to mistake, or at least pretend to mistake, words on a page for real-world accomplishments. And of course those accomplishments will prove difficult or impossible to achieve in a war zone, which also won't be affected by words on a page. The only thing of any heft achieved here by Kerry of Wiggleroom is to turn a murderous dictator into a permanent "peace" partner, and restore to Russia a position it hasn't enjoyed in the Middle East for 40 years.

The collapse of American power in that region has been as swift as it has been mind-bogglingly needless.

UPDATE: What did Wiggleroom talk to Rouhani about?
