This little tidbit is just too weird to believe…and it was published in the Washington Examiner…which I tend to take with a grain of salt…but this was too much fun to pass up.

But apparently Secretary of State Mike Pompeo’s team is putting together a strategy for the coming confrontation with China…and it is an unusual situation because?

“This is a fight with a really different civilization and a different ideology and the United States hasn’t had that before,” Kiron Skinner, the director of policy planning at the State Department, said Monday evening at a security forum in Washington, D.C.

“The Soviet Union and that competition, in a way it was a fight within the Western family,” Skinner said, noting Karl Marx’s indebtedness to Western political ideas. “It’s the first time that we will have a great power competitor that is not Caucasian.”

So Ms. Skinner hasn’t heard of World War II? You know…remember Pearl Harbor?

The Korean War (Conflict)? I mean we are still essentially fighting that one…i.e. a nuclear armed North Korea. I would hope our State Department is up to speed on those negotiations.

And Viet Nam? The Tet Offensive? Even the president knows how the late Senator John McCain got injured.

Considering we have a self-proclaimed student of history in the Oval Office…this is who we have at State??
