section9

Ellen. Rice meant what she said. If you knew what you were talking about you would understand.

Putin came up through the KGB. Rice is telling him that she understands the direction that he's going. Putin runs a KGB state. Get that clear.

Oh, and she understands Russian quite well. One of her heirlooms is a first printing of War and Peace in the original Cyrillic.

And the USA is going towards Naziism. Great. Let's redo WWII as WIII.


Do you have any faint idea what that means? Seriously. It is one thing to be a loud mouthed neo-con and quite another, being a diplomat. I hope you have a very deep bomb shelter. Condi and her boss have several.

And this is why I despair for us! We can't go around telegraphing that we want war. We are bogged down in fatal wars already, wars we lost.


If we love democracy, we would arrest Bush and Cheney and Condi because they got power via NON-DEMOCRATIC means. And Bush Sr RAN the effing CIA! And then took over the Presidency!

Gads. And waged wars in the Middle East. And then there is Iran/Contra run by Bush Sr. during the Reagan years. Holy cows and calves.

"Oh, and she understands Russian quite well. One of her heirlooms is a first printing of War and Peace in the original Cyrillic."

Well, my analysis came up with the conclusion that Rice doesn't have much of a grasp on English. She can put one word in front of another, but that's about all. I don't have the data right on hand. But just ask me to prove my case. I double-dog dare you!!!

Woof!

Bush talks in an alien tongue and it also isn't Russian. I would love to see old Condi debate Putin in Russian. French, for that matter.

Putin is very fluent in German. Maybe I should debate him. Ist gut?

Old Putin is a smart customer. He hasn't debated anybody in decades. Just gives 'em their instructions. And I'm sure he knows this. So he won't debate.

I don't like debates anyway. They seem to put people into this mindset where they feel the need to make points they don't have much faith in themselves. That's a good way to start deceiving one's self. Not a very productive activity, from my perspective.

I would be interested in 'debating' Bush, for my own devious reasons. ('Devious' is a wasted adjective here — I know.) I wouldn't try to make him look bad. I would try to open the hidden doors he doesn't know about.

Doesn't 'confessing' all your foibles in a stupid coffin at Yale make you a radioactive security risk? Why not, Mr. Bush? Of course he wouldn't talk about it. Then I would ask about Valery Plame...

Have you seen this?

It fits your world view very well.

A lot of its true of the UK too

What if Rice had said, "The idea that somehow 10 interceptors and a few radars in Eastern Europe are going to threaten the RUSSIAN strategic deterrent is purely ludicrous, and everybody knows it..."?

She's right. It IS ludicrous. Pootie-poot knows it, too. He's just indulging in some heavy breathing. That's what Russians do, ever since that peasant Khruschev banged on a table with his shoe.

Elaine Meinel Supkis

Fascism rides in on economic distress. Communism rises when the peasants get mad and get armed.


Smith, your commentary is getting flaccid. I know your clock runs backwards. If Russia or better still, China puts missiles on the border of Texas, you can say it is meaningless.

DeVaul

Smith is now senile. He cannot even remember the Cuban missile crisis -- or rather "non-crisis", as all the Soviets/Russians wanted to do was put some missiles on an island that was friendly with it. It almost started WW III according to most historians.

Section9:

Please get your section 8 certification and just get out. You contribute nothing.

We need right wingers here. They amuse me. :)

Let’s benchmark the parameters: yes, I will die.

We know that one day we must die, but usually we picture that day as far in the future.
