Good question. What should we think when our "leaders" are signing foreign treaties that hurt the country they claim to represent. I would speculate that either they are uneducated or that they do not truly represent the interests of our country.If you replace the word communist with socialist or collectivist, you can update the following quotes from Yuri. If you replace the USSR with the UN and other "do-gooder" globalist organizations that always call for America to make concessions, such as in Kyoto, but not anyone else, you still can get the same demoralizing effect.There are hundreds of volumes written about the ways Communists use foreign relations for their purposes. There are NONE which reveal the link between the failures of American diplomacy and the process of demoralization. From time to time defectors from the Communist side, such as Arkady Shevchenko, the USSR representative in the UN, give breath-taking accounts on how the Communists are using 'diplomacy' for subversion. And yet all the crowds of “experts” and “kremlinologists” are seemingly unable to put the pieces together and to raise their voices AGAINST dealing with the Communists in a 'diplomatic' way.
Many public figures have noted that most or Americans do not want to hear unpleasant things. Politicians in the USA know this. So does the KGB. Every American administration has contributed to the process of DEMORALIZATION of their own foreign policy by continuously negotiating and SIGNING "peace treaties.” From the "Lend Lease" to the "Helsinki Accord" to the "SALT" treaties, creating false expectations and voter complacency and NEVER openly and honestly admitting that NONE of those: agreements and treaties EVER WORKED-- for America that is-- They ALL benefited the USSR however. In the process America has lost MOST or her foreign friends to the 'Socialist camp'-- Concentration camp, to he precise. Presently the USA is rapidly nearing a situation of TOTAL ISOLATION from the rest or the world. Even our long-time: friend Great Britain did not support America, even verbally, on the liberation of Grenada, despite the obvious fact that America was on the British side in the ridiculous war over the Falkland Islands.What could be more amoral than the 'peace with honor' signed by Kissinger with Hanoi Communists? -- ask the Vietnamese 'boat people.’ When someone makes a deal with a murderer we call him 'accomplice in crime,’ we don't award him with 'Nobel Peace Prize.’ Or do we? What should we call this kind of foreign policy which is both amoral AND hurts America?
