What kind of diplomacy do people actually think takes place at a G20? We’re the United States, all that happens there is we sign on to another “defense agreement” or “economic development plan”. In other words, we fight more wars, sell more weapons, give special privileges to foreign interests, or bailout some broke nation.
I’m so upset that we aren’t part of that “in crowd” now.
We’re broke people. And at war in every corner of the world. But let’s continue down that path. Because it’s better to fit in than make sense.
This is what being the “world leader” in today’s system means. So some heads of state just as corrupt as the next one are annoyed they can’t get their normal kickbacks. Too bad.
