Whither goest peace­ful res­o­lu­tion?

The Washington Times Weekly - - Letters To The Editor - ILYA RUBINSTEIN Brook­lyn, New York

With great con­cern, I read “The Lat­est: US or­ders Rus­sia to close SF con­sulate” (Web, Aug. 31). The fact that the Trump ad­min­is­tra­tion gave Rus­sia only 48 hours to close its con­sulate in San Fran­cisco and other prop­er­ties in Wash­ing­ton and New York is com­pletely un­ac­cept­able.

This un­wise de­ci­sion per­fectly shows how this ad­min­is­tra­tion is im­ple­ment­ing “in­fant diplo­macy” in a way that is more suit­able to North Korea than the United States.

It seems to me that in or­der to prove that Rus­sia has noth­ing to do with his elec­tion, Pres­i­dent Trump reck­lessly took a strong line against Rus­sia, for­get­ting that coun­try helps to fight the Is­lamic State in Syria.

I re­ally hope that the Trump ad­min­is­tra­tion will learn from its mis­takes, but so far, the pres­i­dent seems to have no re­gard for peace­ful con­flict res­o­lu­tions.
