What happened to diplomacy? Why are there so many vacancies in the State Department with so few career diplomats left? The problems are extremely complex and require bright people who are patient, skilled in analysis-understanding, generating and communicating novel, well developed plans. With these scattered military excursions, we are acting like the Incredible Hulk, a caveman who tries to stomp down on what he fears or doesn’t like. Meanwhile, our infrastructure, education system, health care system fall further and further behind. These problems aren’t Republican or Democrat problems...both parties have been complicit. These problems are becoming critical deficits for all of our citizens. In the end, there could be nothing much left for the military to save. The very rich will simply leave.
