Condoleezza Rice is about "talk."
The male responses to crises are "determined" and "firm."
Dr. Rice's responses are designed to appease the enemy.
I don't understand.
Did we actually give something to North Korea?
Have we given anything to Iran?
Appeasement is defined as giving something, namely territory, to the dictator Hitler because Hitler said his German-speakers needed a larger Germany.
Where is the appeasement here?
What territory have we given anyone?
I don't see it.
I don't agree with Dr. Rice. She's a neocon hack.
But the objections of Cheney, Gingrich, and Perle have nothing to do with competence. They have everything to do with sexism. They want a firm response . . . and if you understand the gender values endemic to American international policy language, you know exactly what this is.
It's the State Department you idiots.
It's not the Defense Department.
