Not Gonna Talk To You

So the Bush administration won't talk to North Korea. This is great news, because what the world really needs right now is more people refusing to tell each other what they're on about. I'm sure this will end well. Like with bombing Iran, or something.

And no, Condoleezza, you can't know that negotiation will work. But if you don't ask, the answer is always going to be no.

This is un-freaking-believable. That asshole Bush. Back in 2001, he complains that NK doesn't communicate openly enough, immediately shuts down all talks. Subsequently, NK develops the bomb. Who's to blame? - Clinton and the cut-n-runners.

I've seen conflicting reports on the national media about the official US position. Bush says he, (er, excuse me, Freudian slip) 'the US' has no intention to attack NK, but on PBS John Bolton says the military option is NOT off the table. How come the media reports one thing on corporate media and the opposite on the public channel? Must be the liberal media.

I've been thinking this all day long and trying to put the words into my own words in a way that makes sense. I still can't do that, but now I at least know why. It makes no sense!

Clinton opened talks; Bush closed them. We don't talk to our enemies he said. Said it again with Iran. And too many others. And now when those enemies "quit talking", it's their fault! And if they build bombs, or get them handed to them by another "enemy" of ours, it's their fault, too.

These people need counseling before they put the rest of us into a post-WWIII world.
