Presidents Keep Hiring Elliott Abrams Because the US Empire Is Just That Evil

Good Lord, look at his face! You wonder why his face looks so permanently twisted into that evil mask? It’s because he’s been being evil his whole life! If you’ve been sad your whole life, after a while, you have a sad face. Same with worried or happy or anything.

The French say,

By age 50, everyone has the face they deserve.

This is because of the way that thinking and emoting in certain ways over years or even decades carves permanent features into your face.

Presidents Keep Hiring Elliott Abrams Because the US Empire Is Just That Evil

by Caitlin Johnstone

Listen to a reading of this article (reading by Tim Foley):


As Forrest noted, this would be the fourth presidential administration that Abrams has been a part of despite being a confessed crook and despite pushing for bloodshed at every opportunity in some of the US empire’s most notorious criminal actions.

Abrams is such a cold-hearted killer that he openly admitted during a 1985 conference that the purpose of aiding the Contras in Nicaragua was “to permit people who are fighting on our side to use more violence,” and has promoted US military violence against Iraq, Syria, and Iran with remarkable forcefulness throughout his career. The fact that someone so tyrannical, so corrupt, and so unscrupulous keeps getting appointed to positions involved with US foreign policy tells you everything you need to know about the nature of US foreign policy.

It’s actually a damning indictment of our entire civilization that swamp monsters like Elliott Abrams remain esteemed members of society instead of reviled outcasts who can’t safely show their faces in public. They should be driven from every town they try to enter and unable to secure even entry-level jobs working for minimum wage, but instead they’re employed as high-profile pundits, think tankers, and political officials providing expertise on some of the most consequential matters in the world.

To paraphrase a quote often attributed to Jiddu Krishnamurti, it is no measure of health to be well-rewarded in a profoundly sick society. Because our society is so profoundly sick, one of the fastest ways to fortune and esteem is to be as gross as Elliott Abrams. That’s how messed up you have to be inside to rise to prominence within the US power structure: willing to say and do whatever needs to be said and done in order to secure the continued dominance of a global empire that is sustained by human blood.
