By lending its valuable ‘real estate’ to the campaign for office of one of the most outspoken Cold Warriors within the military, General Breedlove, the editorial board of Foreign Affairs magazine has shown yet again that it is incapable of guarding its neutrality or balance, incapable of hedging its bets against a Trump victory in November.
Thus, the current, July-August issue carries an article by Philip B. Breedlove, till recently Commander of the U.S. European Command and NATO’s Supreme Allied Commander, Europe. His piece, entitled “NATO’s Next Act” might more honestly be called “Why I Have Earned My Next Job as Secretary of Defense in the Administration of Hillary Clinton.” During his service in Europe, General Breedlove was never bashful about being a politicking military officer who was keen to pick a fight with Russia. He met with the press often, making newsworthy pronouncements about Russia’s malevolent intentions and illegal actions that were unsupported by facts.
Our European allies objected to Breedlove, stating openly that various of his allegations regarding Russian operations in Ukraine contradicted what their own intelligence services were reporting. Indeed, on 6 March 2015, the Spiegel Online carried a story under a headline that says it all: “Breedlove’s Bellicosity: Berlin Alarmed by Aggressive NATO Stance on Ukraine.” At the time, it was believed that Breedlove was trying to sabotage the recently instituted cease-fire in Donbas and overturn the Minsk-2 Accords in favor of resumed fighting in which the US would provide Kiev with lethal weapons. By this scenario, a full-blown proxy war with Russia would follow.

Guess Whose trying to Help Hillary get elected?
Doctorow’s columns on Russia, then, are easily summed up, and Young has already done the job: as she puts it, he “serves up a steady diet of frank Kremlin apologism and vitriolic attacks on Putin foes,” all the while suggesting that any Russian who has anything negative whatsoever to say about the president is an out-and-out traitor. “Opposition treachery,” Young writes, “is a Doctorow leitmotif.”
