This is the second time I recommend an interview on the Hugh Hewitt show, but he’s getting people on there who are unafraid to tell it how it is. This time, he has Retired General William Odom who said it like it is and smacks Mr. Hewitt’s attempts to smear him back to the stone age. I’m glad to see some smart talk finding its way again on the conservative side. It’s been a while. Perhaps someday soon conservatives will realize the poison they’ve been drinking at the well of neo-conservatism.

After the bump, I’ve got some of the better sections of the interview. Upon reading these quotes, note that you are reading the words of a man who is not afraid. Note the use of fearmongering in Mr. Hewitt’s questions. Instead of following the bait, General Odom paints the clear picture of reality. Continue Reading Finally Some American Realism!…

Tentative Agreement With North Korea

Well well, how about that, North Korea has signed on to a tentative agreement wherein North Korea would dismantle their nuclear program in exchange for oil and food. Huh, wasn’t that what Clinton did in 1994?

Just What Has Condoleezza Rice Done?

A new article delves into this question: just what has Condoleezza Rice done as Secretary of State? Is it her intervention that stopped the Israel-Lebanon War? Has she accomplished anything in stopping Iran’s pursuit of nuclear technology? Has she done anything to stop North Korea’s belligerence? Has she done anything to solve The Sudan genocide? Has she done anything to stop this war between Somalia and Ethiopia? Has she gotten the insurgency in Iraq to come to a political table and participate in governing Iraq? Just what exactly has Condoleezza Rice done as Secretary of State?

Moreover, just what did Condoleezza Rice do as National Security Adviser?

And was she this inept as Provost of Stanford?

Let me tell you, we’re lucky that we have such few conflicts to deal with right now…

South Korea and China on Sanctions: Business As Usual

October 16, 2006 at 10:15 am | Posted in American politics, China, King George, North Korea, United Nations, World Events | Leave a comment

So China and South Korea will keep business as usual with North Korea, in spite of sanctions. Hmmmm, perhaps Bush should not have rushed the UN sanctions push. But methinks Bush was thinking more about the November elections than about protecting America…..

China Softens Stance on North Korea

China does not want to punish North Korea, as Bush does. They believe any sanction should be made to bring North Korea back to the negotiating table. So, Mr. Hu, take the lead! Continue Reading China Softens Stance on North Korea…

McCain: It’s All Clinton’s Fault!

John McCain, showing he is interested in lowering his standards rather than keeping with his straight talk express, joins the Republican chorus blaming Bill Clinton for North Korea’s nuclear test this past Sunday. That’s right, Mr. McCain, because the past six years under Bush did not exist, right? Continue Reading McCain: It’s All Clinton’s Fault!…

Many are pondering today what to do about the North Korean regime now that they have tested a nuclear weapon. Well I’ve got some ideas. They are going to require a sacrifice, but alas, nothing in this world comes free. Continue Reading Collapse the North Korean Regime…

October Surprise! North Korea Tested a Nuke!

October 9, 2006 at 10:08 am | Posted in Afghanistan, Iraq, King George, North Korea, Republicans, World Events | 12 Comments

well, good morning to y’all. Sheesh, you wake up and check the news to find North Korea has gone nuclear on George W. Bush’s watch, even when he and his supporters pouted that that was “unacceptable.” Perhaps Karl Rove (and most within the inner circle) knew about this from secret reports, that North Korea was going to test a nuke in October, and will now use this to “rally around the flag” and the prez. Only problem, of course, is that Bush has done near-criminally little about North Korea, focusing so passionately on a country that didn’t have nukes, Iraq, and on one that doesn’t have them yet, Iran, that he let the one who does, North Korea, move so far on his watch.

Are there really more examples that America needs that this administration is criminally inept to rule? Afghanistan might be lost “within six months” according to NATO’s commander. Iraq might be lost “within 90 days” according to Senator Warner. Katrina was a great failure. North Korea tested six missiles on our birthday without any consequence. And now, they’ve tested a nuke. Welcome to the nuclear club North Korea.
