Reader comment on item: What Rex Tillerson Thinks
in response to reader comment: Menendez 's take on Tillerson? Really?

The United States is poised to re-enter the world arena with a world view differing from the current incumbency by so many factors, one cannot barely fathom the depths America has been dragged through to get to this place unless one understands what the last eight years was/is really all about.
From the get-go, Tillerson is an enigma to any who do not realize that any level of inexperience he has in Washington style politics is more than compensated for by his knowledge of the war fought behind the scenes, the economic one that is shielded by those who control the world's money. Tillerson may not have a working knowledge of how much uranium is necessary to be spun in order to get sufficient material to tip a warhead; but one can guess he has insider's knowledge on to fund such a project. That requires negotiating skills, something (soon to be former) Sec of State Kerry does not have.

Now to the angst about Cuba, a long running and nefarious international state of affairs that has had a bad taste in political circles from the time of the Spanish American war (remember the Maine(?)), where is many might recall, Cuba has yet to shed the instilled subtleties of having been colonialized for so long and subsequent autocratic reigns has yet to bring Cuba into the twentieth century, let alone the twenty-first. Remember this: there's limited interest in Cuba's known major oil pool, so Tillerson has had limited need to focus on Cuba; until now.
As to the efficacy of a Trump administration, we need to remember that for decades, America has been run into the mud by the political will of a varied sort of institutionalized mentality, the results of which were found to be the last straw of a taxpayer based shove away to give the legal voting public one last chance at retaining the freedoms of the fore-father's legacy. Trump has taken on a daunting task: and too few realize this is really, REALLY, America's last gleam of her former glory, the twilights' last gleaming.
After Kerry's trashing of the true center piece of world going to pieces over the Middle East, watch as Abba's Palestinian scenario pulls every one off balance in the UN and peacekeeping becomes something no one on earth will ever be able to handle without going nuclear again.
