People eventually get the face they deserve, so the maxim goes.
For no one does it seem more apropos than longtime Deep State war pig Victoria Nuland, whom the Brandon entity recently promoted to the position of top lieutenant in the State Department – a surefire signal that more war is on the horizon, as it always is in American Empire.
This realization came upon me while watching a recent clip from Glenn Greenwald detailing Nuland’s decades-long career in Washington doing one thing and one thing only: lobbying for endless war as the queen of all war pigs.
(As one commenter noted on the YouTube video, in all of her public appearances Nuland gives undeniable Nurse Ratchet vibes – the epically insidious, manipulative antagonist in One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest.)
In it, Greenwald harkens back to the early aughts version of a fresh-faced Nuland, working then directly under the guidance of what can only be called her mentor, the repugnant Dick Cheney — whose face only a mother could love, and probably not her either.
Here she is fresh off of her tenure as Cheney’s top Iraq War advisor. She’s perky and smiley-faced and decidedly less menopausal in appearance and demeanor than current form – and charming the pants off of the C-SPAN hack:
Here’s Nuland in 2013 in her new role as Department of State spokescreature, in which she’s starting to look a little rough around the edges.
Here she is in 2018 with Russiagater, fellow war pig, and resident MSNBC lesbian kingpin Rachel Maddow. She can be seen here starting to take final form.
And, finally, here she is discussing opaque American biolabs abroad in 2022, in peak form. All of the genocidal lies seem to have really taken their toll.
I think we all know where this is headed.
