I just couldn’t pass these up.
Speaking of US secretary of state Rex Tillerson:
“Tillerson’s main job so far has been traveling the planet to reassure
foreign leaders that the new president isn’t as crazy as he seems to be.”
And while I’m at it, let’s add this one, which says a whole lot about Washington priorities:
“As former Secretary of Defense Robert Gates once noted, there are
more personnel in a single aircraft carrier task force than there are
trained diplomats in the U.S. Foreign Service.”
