US Ambassador to Hungary: Overthrow Assad, Let in Refugees, and Fight Russia...or Els
US Ambassador to Hungary: Overthrow Assad, Let in Refugees, and Fight Russia...or Else!

By Daniel McAdams

If anyone wants a short course on what's wrong with US diplomacy look no further than US Ambassador to Hungary Coleen Bell's speech Friday to the Foreign Affairs Committee of the Hungarian Parliament. In typical diplo-speak there was plenty of flowery language about shared values, fish swimming together in the same water (?), sappy poetics like "together, out of that winter, we would force the spring," and talk of together being "part of the world’s greatest military and political alliance."

But make no mistake: Inside Ambassador Bell's velvet glove is an iron fist, poised to strike should Washington's annoyingly independent-minded Fidesz-led government step out of line on the big issues. And by "big" issues it should be understood that the US means the issues it considers in the interests of its own foreign policy, not those in Hungary's interest.

Message to Hungary: do as we say or you will be sorry. (...)

The Hungarians should respond by formalizing a military alliance with Visegrad states, parallel to NATO. A military-political bloc with a GDP of $1.7 trillion would make them very potent and stronger than Russia.
