Tara Reade: As the American hawk bombs overseas, the rot of corruption and bigotry plucks at its underbelly at home

The Biden administration’s decision to bomb Syria is not surprising, nor is the complete reversal of media tone compared to when Trump did it. It’s all a reflection of the bigotry eating away at the country from the inside.

From my time as a volunteer at a raptor rescue, I know doves and pigeons sometimes manage to fight back against hawks. When it happens the dove usually makes little cuts in the hawk’s underbelly, only visible if the bird is turned over. But eventually, the hawk spirals to the ground, dead.

If you have ever done any falconry, then you know the power in the bird’s grip. In fact, special gloves are required to withstand the claws of hawks or falcons, as they could cut you to the bone just by squeezing.

I imagine both allies and foes wish they had these special gloves while doing diplomacy with America.

I believe America, like that hawk, has little cuts of greed and corruption slicing away at any semblance of Democracy. And it is in a spiral.
