US Thugocracy

The recent vote in the UN on a non-binding resolution brought out the “THUG” in the Trump administration…..ambassador to the UN, Nikki Haley, made two speeches to the body of the UN and threatened the world with retaliation if the vote did not go in America’s favor…..but do not take my word for it….here are the two Nikki Haley speeches on one site……

Is that what the US has become?  An international thug that demands respect without giving it?  If things do not go our way then we let children starve is that what she was saying?

The disaster that is our diplomatic mission is making the world a more dangerous place.  And I see no relief headed our way.  Reenacting a scene from “Godfather” is not a way to a successful foreign policy.

Threatening nations that we will need in the future in our situation with North Korea or Iran or any other emergency that may arise is not the way forward.

  1. I don’t think it is that much to do with the Trump administration. America has always threatened other countries, at least since 1945. The Cold War, Cuba, Central American republics, and so on…
    Perhaps they do it more overtly these days, but little has changed.
    Best wishes, Pete.

    1. They are playing it like a Greek drama….we talked nice but stab people in the back…these guys go straight to the knife….a little diplomacy is too much to ask….chuq

  2. I have said before this administration will drag us into a rabbit hole of delusional illustrations. We will be, in all areas, at the bottom of a deep hole that will take us ,unfortunately, decades to climb out of. Could this be the end of America’s moral greatness?

    1. What do you mean with America’s moral greatness?
      They way you stating this implicates that other countries are of at least lesser moral greatness.

      I know that a lot of Americans think they are, morally great, a result of the American Exceptionalism concept.
      But you are not.
