In an op-ed published in Common Dreams on Dec. 26, under the headline “U.S. Foreign Policy Is a Scam Built on Corruption,” Jeffrey Sachs demonstrates that the U.S. government is run by a cabal that follows vested interests and not public interest. This explains the apparent irrationality of foreign policy, that keeps repeating the same mistakes over and over. In his conclusion, Sachs calls for immediately cutting any financial aid to Ukraine and to Israel.
“When Congress reassembles in January, Biden, Kirby, Sullivan, Blinken, Nuland, Schumer, McConnell, Blumenthal and their ilk will tell us that we absolutely must fund the losing, cruel, and deceitful war in Ukraine and the ongoing massacre and ethnic cleansing in Gaza, lest we and Europe and the free world, and perhaps the solar system itself, succumb to the Russian bear, the Iranian mullahs, and the Chinese Communist Party. The purveyors of foreign policy disasters are not being irrational in this fear-mongering. They are being deceitful and extraordinarily greedy, pursuing narrow interests over those of the American people.
