We know from RPI Chairman Ron Paul that President Obama’s choice to be the next Defense Secretary, Ashton Carter, will mean no big changes in current US foreign and military policy.
International correspondent Pepe Escobar informs us that Carter is:
…the typical Beltway apparatchik – profiting from the revolving door between the military, heavy industry and academia.
He was and remains a key actor in the ever evolving “policy” of demonization of Russia.
Carter was also panicking about (non-existent) Iraqi and Iranian WMDs as long ago as 1996, and he supported a military strike against North Korea if they tested a ballistic missile.
