At long last, the “Diplomacy from a Distance” style of our Secretary of “Statist” has come to an end. This “green” (in more ways than one..) administration’s concern with the potential “carbon footprint” of a Secretary of State that “actually travels” to conduct diplomacy has led them to believe that a hefty long distance bill is better for the environment than the padding of her frequent flier miles. Then again for some strange reason, her agenda on this romp has little to do with diplomacy and a lot to do with the exaggerated threats to the “environment”..
Rodham, identified as “”President Barack Obama’s chief diplomat” (Name the scarier segment: “chief diplomat Rodham” or “President Obama” Six to five and pick ‘em..) winged her way to Tokyo and then it’s off to China, South Korea and Indonesia. An article (“Clinton warns North Korea during Tokyo visit”) said that this was “her first trip abroad”. Judging by her imaginary “resume” of “thirty five years of experience”, that should actually read, “it’s the broad’s first trip”..
Rodham wasted no time in revealing the inherent gullibility that the progressives are unfortunately known for. In that frigid librarian tone, she “warned North Korea to live up to its commitments to dismantle its nuclear programs”. Here we have a Secretary of State who doesn’t even have the ability to make her husband “live up to his commitments” to her and she is “warning” the North Koreans.
“Warnings” need to have a bit of substance behind them other than the mere amperage of hollow progressive rhetoric. The “substance” behind the Obama administration “warnings” up to this point have been the closing of Guantanamo Bay, the decision to cut defense spending, the dropping of charges against foreign terrorists/murderers and the ordering of all overseas CIA interrogation centers closed. “Dear Leader” must be quivering in his teeny weenie widdle boots..
Rodham dove right into the world of international diplomacy by barking that “the main issues on her agenda included climate change, clean energy and nuclear proliferation..” Later she said, “The administration’s goal is to push climate change and the global financial crisis to or near the top of the agenda..” In China, “Clinton’s agenda will encompass the full sweep of the economic crisis, global warming, clean energy, North Korea and health issues..”
It would appear that the Secretary of State is more concerned with the environment than matters of State. If you look WAY, WAY down the executive ladder within the Department of State, you will find the “Under Secretary of State for Democracy and Global Affairs”. This typically redundant governmental spot was created by Bill “Mr. Big Government” Clinton to “manage diplomatic efforts on emerging world wide issues such as the environment..”
Since the Secretary of State needs to concern herself with the duties of a much lower level cabinet post’s responsibilities, I will assume that the Obama administration has run into problems trying to locate yet another liberal tax cheat to fill this spot. If they are in a bind, they could call the last Under Secretary, Paula J. Dobiansky, who filled the post admirably during the Bush administration. The only glitch that I would see with this is she actually HAS experience, unlike everyone else in the Obama administration and she seems to understand her obligations on April 15th..
At about 30,000 feet, Rodham said, “the North Koreans have already agreed to dismantling, we expect them to fulfill the obligations that they entered into..” The naivete of the progressives is at once childishly charming as well as definitively dangerous. If they aren’t “talking” about something, they are always ready to “sign” something. Then it is time to dole out the hugs.. Once the flash bulbs pop, the liberal “New age Nevilles” actually believe that their (our) adversaries are going to “fulfill their obligations” because they “said they would”..
Korean kook Kim Jong Il (ill) says he is doing “peaceful scientific research” and “space development”, so there is nothing for anyone to worry about.. The empty and idle threats and the inherent cowardice of the liberal administration towards these kinds of simians will put America right where the left wants us to be, completely vulnerable, totally susceptible.
In order for “negotiations” to be effective, they have to be based upon the premise that retaliation for noncompliance is inevitable, that there might be actual negative consequences for disregarding or violating any agreement that is made. Those who are weak always want to “negotiate first”. The liberals need to understand that the only thing that takes place from a position of weakness is concession. Those who are weak or vulnerable are generally attacked, not bargained with. Those who are weak want to “bargain” before the fight begins.. All of this liberal talk of “talk” emboldens our enemies, it doesn’t paralyze them with fear.
That is the reason that the “U.N. resolution” is irrelevant, there is nothing behind it. The only possible detriment relative to one of these useless reams is the potential for an infection from a paper cut. You have to wonder which is more frightening, the dreaded “U.N. weapons inspector” or a column of powder blue helmets marching towards you..
Here liberal “Peace in our time” inspired “talks” lead to “resolutions” or “treaties” and then eventually, when the liberals emasculate the military to the point where the balance of power shifts, camels are grazing on the White House lawn..
Here we have the United States “chief diplomat” on her first diplomatic mission and she wants to “talk” about the “environment” and “global warming” to countries concerned with and surrounded by the militaristic mind set of North Korea. (and China for that matter..) It is the equivalent of being in Kuwait in July of 1990 and talking about bowling and boysenberries.
Rodham says, “we have a very broad agenda”. I am more concerned with “this broad’s agenda” and the “agenda” of an administration that sends a Secretary of State on a field trip to talk about the weather.. It does seem like a “very broad agenda”, it sounds as though it was prepared by the broads at the Lifetime Channel..
The infantile notion that the enemies to freedom will not do anything “bad” based only on “talks” and “treaties” as opposed to force and can only be found within the communist craniums of the liberal left. The liberals are just dying to believe. Soon, with the Obama imbeciles “talking” to Iran, North Korea and Russia (again..), Americans will be dying BECAUSE the liberals believed..
