A little thought experiment:
Imagine if Samantha Power (the US Ambassador to the UN, a very significant foreign policy position in any presidential administration) had been running our foreign policy during WWII? In the quote below, replace Syria with USSR.
U.S. coordination with Syrian President Bashar al-Assad over the airstrikes: Syria, she said, is not a reliable partner. “You’re committing terror against your people, you’re the ones using chemical weapons and barrel bombs, etc. so we didn’t ask for permission — we just offered a notification.”"
This admin runs foreign policy like Barney Fife.
Oh yeah, and didn’t she call Hillary Clinton a monster once, too?
The point: the enemy of my enemy is my friend, at least until the primary enemy is defeated. Strategy 101 people!
