Why The Neutralist? The term Isolationist implies a narrow Fortress America outlook and is used as an epithet. The term Neutralist does not indicate someone hiding out from the world. No one calls the Swiss isolationists. The Wilsonian world view is old, tired and wrong. Our interventions have been less and less successful and now the failure can no longer be covered up.

We have no intention of fighting Russia so stop arming Ukraine for battle-Anatol Lieven

 The title says it all.  At the website of the Quincy Institute, Responsible Statecraft, Anatol Lieven about the US poking the Bear to no purpose.

To quote the Professor:

"Simply put, the Georgia-Russia War of 2008 should teach us that to arm other countries for war with more powerful neighbors when you have no intention of fighting to save them is not only irresponsible, it is deeply immoral."

Post-Cold War American foreign policy has a lot of immorality about it and needs to stop.

Unfortunately, the Biden administration seems to be blundering in a lot of places.

Let's call it what it is-Biden saying Putin has no soul is childish

 Saying Putin has no soul and is a murderer is  rich coming from a man who still supports the evil Saudi war in Yemen and continues the needless war in Syria.

Reading Max Abrahms on Twitter, I find out Putin challenged Biden to a debate.  Can't happen, but would love to see it.

The Quincy Institute has an article, Calling Putin a ‘killer’ with ‘no soul’ is not exactly diplomatic finesse by Anatol Lieven.  One might be tempted to say tell me something I don't know, but it is worth a read.
