The Olympics and Jerusalem: Disillusionment confirmed

This week’s two most dramatic events will go down in history as shattering the wishful-thinking illusions that anyone might have still had about the Trump Administration’s policies towards Russia and Israel.

Both candidates represented a promising break from the past and swore to reverse the failed policies of their predecessors, and each were elected out of the desperation that most Americans were feeling at the time, whether real or imagined. They “talked the talk” and said all the “right” things, but once they got into office, they didn’t exactly “walk the walk” that they were supposed to. Obama promised a new era of relations with the Muslim World, while Trump said that he’d do the same vis-à-vis Russia.

Neither of them, however, ended up fulfilling their campaign promises in this regard due to the heavy and intrusive pressure exerted on them by the permanent military, intelligence, and diplomatic bureaucracies, or “deep state”. The Obama Administration will infamously go down in history for orchestrating the theater-wide Color Revolutions popularly known as the “Arab Spring”, while Trump’s team is already on target to be the most anti-Russian one that the US has ever seen…

Trump’s disappointed many people, especially his supporters abroad, but he’s also fulfilled the dreams of many others who pined for the day when they would see Russia kicked out of the Olympics and the US recognize Jerusalem as Israel’s capital, let alone in the same week as one another and no matter how unfair both of these decisions might be to many. It’s an uncomfortable political truth, but there are a lot of people – especially in the US – who hate Russia and love Israel, whether having arrived at these conclusions either on their own or due to mass media manipulation, and failure to accept this reality is yet another delusion that some people will have to painfully overcome sooner or later.

Be seeing you
