Disavowing and verbal attacks or threats is not Progressive. It is attempting to perpetuate American Imperialism.
Diplomacy is Progressive. Which means keeping communications open with other world leaders.
The US has absolutely no place portraying our country as some moral superior with the right to judge other governments, considering the atrocities we have been involved in for decades and continue committing even now.
In your opinion, maybe we should start bombing India? You know, that has worked so well for the freedom of authoritarian regimes in Syria, Libya, Afghanistan, Yemen, Somalia… Do we need slave markets in the streets? Another, “We came, we saw, he died” with maniacal laughter? Maybe we should be funding and arming terrorist groups in the country?
Yeah, more of the same is real Progressive.
