Comment: International Reality

(See in situ)

International Reality

The Germans refer to it as "Realpolitik":

"Realpolitik refers to politics or diplomacy based primarily on power and on practical and material factors and considerations, rather than ideological notions or moralistic or ethical premises."

It is not about doing what is "right" which is a morally ambiguous judgement. It is about using whatever means is necessary to attain the desired results that benefit your "tribe".

That includes: espionage, influence ($), coercion, agreements, threats, force & war. Short story - there are no rules.
