Notes from this video:
About Sec of Defense Lloyd Austin: ” There’s no fixing stupid” What LA just said (to Congressional questioning ) is a walking example of that. You’d expect someone in his position to at least be able to lie in a more artful manner. Projection by LA is shameful and dangerous.”
Neocons in DC: “wilful blindness” choosing not to know. Once you underestimate your enemy you put yourself in a position where you’re going to get your butt kicked in a very severe way.
Austin had a reputation for playing fast with the facts (lying) – Ray McGovern
Austin’s two major accomplishments – being a sycophant and lying. LA ” a good liar but poor performer when it comes to doing it.
China: How dare the Chinese be angry about our ships sailing around Taiwan? We have the right to go where we please and do anything we want; this is our rules based. international order; that time is up, and we haven’t come to grips with that yet.
The Chinese need to fend off the American threat; America has no business putting its ships outside of Chinese waters.
Judge:” This is all the manifestation of the ugly horrors of American exceptionalism that defines the State Department and the Defence Dept.”
LJ: We’ve gotten accustomed to killing people overseas – that’s what we’ve been doing since 1989. Witnessing deadly combination of arrogance and incompetence.
