This Is Why The Brookings Institute Can't Have Nice Things

Nothing responds to tanks like a speech, right? Unsurprisingly, the Strobester is a veteran of the lounges and corridors of that fortress of reality, Yale, and a buddy of our favorite little fascist honk, Robert Reich. He's also the author of any number of howlers including this gem.
“In the next century, nations as we know it will be obsolete; all states will recognize a single, global authority. National sovereignty wasn't such a great idea after all.” - Time Magazine, America Abroad: The Birth of the Global Nation, Monday, July 20, 1992
Strobe, you're a freaking genius.

It looks like Putin already knows that national sovereignty wasn't such a good idea. Well, Ukrainian national sovereignty at least.
