A case in point is the following title:  “Fears growing over the prospect of Trump 'peace deal' with Putin”.  The Times does not here fear a military escalation in Ukraine, an armed clash in Syria, a false-flag poisoning in England, or a new Cold War. The Times does not fear a nuclear apocalypse, the end of humanity, the suffering of hundreds of millions of people.

Putin and Xi Jinping would like to see a European Union more resistant to American pressure and able to gain greater independence.

Preventing a confrontation between Iran and Saudis/Israelis also means not making Tehran appear weak or isolated.

But this power also rests on the posture assumed and image projected.

But apparently, peace is not the best possible result for everyone.
