Tillerson In The Fold as the new Secretary of State.
The CEO of Exxon was chosen to Head the State Department under the leadership of President elect Donald Trump
And we all will have to wait and see how this all pans out.
I don't mind that Rex Tillerson is good friends with Vladimir Putin. For that matter, back during the Bush Administration, Putin and President Bush had a visit on the Bush estate and this all ties in with a likely Republican desire to do business with the Democratic Russian Government and it's people because a lot is at stake when it comes to getting along between the US and other nations of great power and it's better to show some kind of solidarity than to become separated by suspicion, allegation and innuendo.
As for our current president, Obama, I am certain that he also wants to form a relationship with Cuba for similar reasons. Because we have been so long out of touch with the basics of international relations, that is, to be on the side of the ordinary people of other nations, not at odds with the policies of the elite few as if all that mattered was that America agrees with everything other nations do or think than more of what America agrees is best for the good of all people on a more global level.
The idea of globalization starts with getting along with the enemy or at least try to find common ground to work with ways to bring people together. It's perhaps one of the greatest diplomatic challenges of America since the early part of the 20th century, where the concept of the enemy was based on simple opposites and thus, you know the results of these opposites.
The future for America depends on everyone, and it seems The new Secretary of State will be a leader for all of us here in the greatest nation on Earth.
America is a place of people with brave new hope and visions. A nation of strong virtue and one that contains the single greatest diversity of human kind. Yes, I hope for the future for America. We need to give Donald Trump a chance. I mean, give him the real opportunity to turn things around and make America Great Again.
