Sachs on "the Urgency of Diplomacy:" Warns Of Nuclear War Danger

March 22, 2024 (EIRNS)—Publishing in “Common Dreams” today, Prof. Jeffrey Sachs warns the U.S. and the world that the refusal to negotiate with Russia has brought the world “closer to nuclear Armageddon than ever before.” His article begins:

“There has been a complete collapse of diplomacy between the US and Russia, and a near-total collapse between the US and China. Europe, which has made itself far too dependent on the US for its own good, simply follows the Washington line. The absence of diplomacy creates a dynamic of escalation that can lead to nuclear war. The highest priority for global peace is to re-establish US diplomacy with Russia and China. The state of affairs is encapsulated by President Joe Biden’s incessant personal insults of his Russian and Chinese counterparts. Instead of focusing on policy, Biden focuses on the personal vis-à-vis President Vladimir Putin. Recently, he referred to President Putin as ‘a crazy SOB.’ In March 2022, he stated that `For God’s sake, this man cannot remain in power.’ Just after meeting with Chinese President Xi Jinping last fall, Biden called him a ‘dictator.’”
