David Sanger, NYT War Promoter, still at it as Biden agrees to START

David Sanger, perennial national security correspondent for the New York Times, never fails to promote the merchants of death in all things concerning war. Although nowadays he cowers behind the addition of co-authors to his articles, his pro-war position is ever clear.

Compare and contrast his take on the START treaty with Reuters' coverage, and on Open Skies, where even the Washington Post admits the U.S. wrecked it.

Trump foolishly withdrew from 2-3 treaties that were worked out with saving lives in mind. As to the Russian hacking I’m guessing they are covering up the real culprits and going with Russia.where is the outrage over a hack of this size? Just gonna blame Russia and leave it at that?

to worry our pretty little minds with things like details....

It's going to take some time to undo the damage caused by torching some of those treaties. Our national ability to approach treaty negotiations with any credibility is completely blown, so now we're going to have to go back to bullying other states with the threat or reality of war. No problem for Uncle Tapioca and Hillamala- they are much more comfortable with swinging the big stick, anyway.

right away and not drag out the new deal by telling them to stay home and out of Syria. The war hawks want Iran to stop defending themselves against Israel by not using their weapons. Missiles must not be used anymore. Stuff it. Iran has said that we should just sign the deal that Trump canceled. This isn’t rocket science. It’s a damn treaty that other countries are still holding to so it doesn’t need to be redone.

And the sanctions on Yemen should have been stopped on day 1. 80 million people in Yemen are food insecure. Food challenged. F’cking starving to death! I’m with Rev. Wright....

I’ve been calling her Kamillery. Obiden. Yogi Biden because of the day ja vue.
