The following quotation was made by John Bolton, former U.S. Ambassador to the U.N., in reference to the Russian/Ukrainian crisis.
“We sent secretary of state John Kerry to London to negotiate with Russian foreign minister Sergey Lavrov. That’s like sending a cupcake to negotiate with a steak knife.”
Reaction of General Jack Keane to the quotation: “I would not use that choice of words but he is actually on the mark, to be sure.”
