Coalition Politics


John Kerry says, “The greatest position of strength is by exercising the best judgement in the pursuit of diplomacy,” he said, “not in some trumped-up, so-called coalition of the bribed, the coerced, the bought and the extorted, but in a genuine coalition.” Glenn Reynolds zings Kerry for bashing our allies. I’d also point out that for many, many months the demand of Kerry types was that we recruit allies and not go it alone. I don’t remember them adding that these allies had to join us for the purest of reasons. This is raising the bar, again.
