Witness the Smart Diplomacy™ in action:
Iraq’s government has told the United States that it will not permit Russian military forces to conduct air and missile strikes inside the country. But Baghdad is allowing Russian military aircraft to overfly its territory to resupply its forces, despite a request from the United States to deny the flights.
Say “no” to the guy busy defending his friends and “yes” to the guy who turned his back on you?
The Iraqis are smarter than that. What a shame our President isn’t.
