A knock on the door
I imagine a couple of people who today may be a little worried about a knock on the door will be George W. Bush and Tony Blair, following the International Criminal Court’s decision to issue an arrest warrant against Putin for war crimes. Ha! Only joking! What is of more interest is what will happen as Putin meets Xi Jinping in the next couple of days. China has put forward a 12-point ‘peace plan’ which it believes could form the basis of a negotiated settlement to hostilities. Russia is ambivalent about it. The West (of course) has dismissed the Chinese proposals out of hand—as they would, since all things China are now BAD, in contradistinction to the West’s stance which is only all GOOD. Perhaps if all sides could agree on the Chinese proposals, it may save a few thousand lives, until things can finally, diplomatically be thrashed out. Well, we couldn’t have that, could we? The military-industrial complex might be left out of pocket. I dare say what I have just said is tantamount to treason, so I’ll pack my overnight bag and wait for a knock on the door.
