Condoleezza Rice, Fashionably Late

December 30, 2008 at 4:07 pm | Posted in American politics | 2 Comments

Condoleezza Rice, one of the worst Secretaries of State the United States has ever had, is fashionably late in calling for Israel to stop the killings. Just like her “birth pangs” moment two years ago with Lebanon, she is running late in getting the killings to end now in Gaza. She ought to know that Hamas just has to endure the bombings and they win. Just like Hezbollah. All Hamas has to do is survive. She ought to know this. But what does she do? She doesn’t phone in to the Israelis to warn them not to strike. She lets them strike. Why? Because there is but one month left for Israel to reign free. After that, a more responsible administration will come to power in America. One that will see that such actions are bereft of wisdom regarding Israel’s long term security and peace. Surely Condoleezza Rice called over to Israel before Israel began bombing and said, “Listen boys, I’m going to be silent for three days. Get your targets in. Kill as many as you can. That’s your window. After that, I’m going to start working the phones and pretend to call for peace. Shalom.”

  1. I previously wrote about the utterly inept Condoleezza Rice. Read this article again for good measure.

    Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice flies home on Friday, after a quick trip across the Middle East and Europe, with just enough progress to shield herself from criticism that the trip was a bust.

    Ms. Rice goes to the Middle East, a quick trip, just enough progress to claim progress, and to make it not be called a bust. This is the Bush administration.

  2. Don’t think Hillary will be any better though.
