Why Are These Professional War Peddlers Still Around?

How long before Carlson gets fired from FOX?

By Tucker Carlson

The American Conservative

One thing that every late-stage ruling class has in common is a high tolerance for mediocrity. Standards decline, the edges fray, but nobody in charge seems to notice. They’re happy in their sinecures and getting richer. In a culture like this, there’s no penalty for being wrong. The talentless prosper, rising inexorably toward positions of greater power, and breaking things along the way. It happened to the Ottomans. Max Boot is living proof that it’s happening in America.

Boot is a professional foreign policy expert, a job category that doesn’t exist outside of a select number of cities. Boot has degrees from Berkeley and Yale, and is a fellow at the Council on Foreign Relations. He has written a number of books and countless newspaper columns on foreign affairs and military history. The International Institute for Strategic Studies, an influential British think tank, describes Boot as one of the “world’s leading authorities on armed conflict.”

  1. Mr. Max Boot wants more and more boots on the ground? Maybe he should go fight his own battles, man-to-man, hand-to-hand, instead of sending Dora and Diego! Boot the motherfucker out, make him lick some Middle Eastern missile-toes! Then he be cryin’ “sniper, no sniping!” like the bullet-brained little bitch he is! Maximum reboot, oh yeah!

    Sorry, his name is kinda punny.

  2. Because militarist Zionism has the longest list of donors in the western hemisphere. No other cause can summon that kind of cash from all corners of the political spectrum. If you are willing to write propaganda for Greater Israel, someone will find a way to make sure you are paid to continue. If you are willing to write this propaganda for an audience that includes state employees whose opinions matter, your sinecure with some kind of think tank operation is ensured for life.

    And yes, you are (technically) antisemitic for complaining about this. I don’t make the rules, I just report them.
