Archive for the ‘nuclear weapons’ Category

Today you will be reading about someone you may never have heard of before, but that does not make him any less significant. This man was…WAS…an ambassador to North Korea. Why do I emphasize ‘was’? Condi made sure she tore him a new one, instead of admitting that she was WRONG about Kim Jong Il (as I could have told her before she even tried to buy off the North Koreans. When will these idiots learn that you can’t pay off a commie terrorist?).

I would like to start from the beginning, but I’m afraid my knowledge is not that extensive. I will start from when I became aware and started paying attention. This was in the 1990’s. I do know that we fought a war between the north and south over there, that we did not declare victory or defeat but instead we called a ceasefire (which means, in essense, we are still at war with them), that there is a demilitarized zone which is heavily armed by both sides, it is constantly compromised by the north, the northerners are constantly trying to escape even though the punishment is death or the gulag, and the south does not want to allow them into their country even though some of them are direct relatives.

There, are we caught up? Good. Now for the problems. Mr. Jay Lefkowitz. He was working for the State Dept. for many years, but he was made to resign. Why? Well, how dare he undermine Condi! He was speaking at the American Enterprise Institute a couple of weeks ago when he stated, ‘Noting that it has been more than two years since Pyongyang pledged to abandon its nuclear weapons program, and more than two weeks since it violated the latest deadline to disclose the full extent of that program, Mr. Lefkowitz observed that “it is increasingly clear that North Korea will remain in its present nuclear status when the Administration leaves office in one year.”‘

Wow. Pretty rough stuff, eh? Too bad the state dept doesn’t have to search for bark of a tree to eat for food on a daily basis so they don’t starve! This was the purpose of that statement: “Jay Lefkowitz, President Bush’s special envoy for human rights in North Korea, has recently pointed out that our current approach to Pyongyang is failing. Lord help a diplomat who tells the truth.”

Does anyone, besides me, remember why Bush hated Kim Jong Il so much? Yes, it was on the basis of humanitarian reasons. Of course there is the issue of nuclear weapons that have a role in this, but I would have thought he would take a hard stand on the humanitarian side. Over two million people have already starved to death, numerous have been murdered by the state, and no one says a damn thing. Thanks a heap, Bush. What happened to you? Who took your cajones?

I will most likely go off deep end while writing this post, because people are idiots and it’s beginning to really bug me. I try to be a nice person. I try not to call people names. I try not to insult other’s intelligence. So don’t insult mine, okay?!

I am going to list a number of issues that the National Intelligence Estimate leaves unanswered. (Scroll down to “Key Judgments”):

1. In 1991, the CIA was not aware that Saddam Hussein was only 6 months away from completing his first nuclear weapon. They did not know this until it was discovered by the Inspectors. Mistake number 1.

2. The CIA told us that there were WMD in Iraq, specifically, George Tenet. (Here is a Foreign Missile Developments and the Ballistic Missile Threat Through 2015.)

3. The CIA told us there were no WMD. They also declared these weapons could not have left the country. Oh? What are they, psychic? I know a good psychiatrist for them!

4. Then they went back to not knowing whether or not they had WMD, but we just haven’t found them yet. Could you rely on this type of information? I certainly wouldn’t! Especially after there is already troops on the ground. Whether or not Saddam was playing a game to fool his neighbors, he lied. You do not lie to the USA. And for you yahoos, you do not lie to the UN. Game, set, match.

5. In 2005, the NIE declared that Iran had reconstituted its nuclear program after talks with the EU-3 plus the USA had failed. Which is it? Did they stop in 2003 like Ghadafi, or did they not?

6. The NIC consists of over 20 different intelligence agencies, some of which we will never know the names of, unlike the CIA. Yes, CIA, that is a slap in your face. How can you be clandestine when you are always showing up on the front page of the NY Times with all of your leaks?

7. From all of those agencies, only about 30 people decided which intelligence to go forward with and assess. I believe these to be intelligence people.

8. This information then goes into the hands of the State Department. Does anyone who reads this site not know how I feel about the State Dept? I want it defunded and gone. Can I make it any clearer?

Then about 3-6 take all the intel from all the agencies and determine what they are going to say. That is how we end up with crap like this. Negroponte should have been fired along Tenet in 2001. George W., I do not understand you.

9. Iran claims they are working on them. ElBeirdi (sp?) says they have the 3000 centrifuges. Russia says they have a program (which Russia is helping them build), so they ought to know!

So why did publish a 2 1/2 page summary of 187 classified report (which some of the departments do not agree with their conclusions) at this time? Could it be political? Yes. They are supposed to display facts. They are not supposed to make any conclusions. That is the job of the president. I only wish many more people would realize their place in public office, such as the Congress. When will they pay our Soldiers?

Update: And one more thing. The onus is NOT on us. It is on Iran. They, after all, have been murdering us for 28 years. When are we going to stand up to these cowards?

Today’s open trackback will be dedicated to the way President Bush almost stood up to those reporters. It would be nice if he would stop using the same words over and over again. Oh well…

    First I would like to explain that I do give the link to the articles, but it is rather frustrating when you look for an article that is no longer there. That is why I have created another link, Love America First-2, so that if you cannot find the article, it may very well be located over there. If they don’t want the public to read their material, they shouldn’t print it! That’s that.

    Let’s get to North Korea’s desire to speak with President Bush one-on-one. Isn’t this remarkable? NO! He has been crying for this ever since our president came into office. It is quite humorous the way it is covered in the news, however.

    NK wants direct military talks with U.S.

    SEOUL, South Korea (Reuters) – North Korea called on Friday for military talks with the United States for peace and security on the peninsula, with Washington saying it can discuss a peace treaty after Pyongyang abandons its nuclear program.

    Do you notice how they treat this communist dictator with respect? Sounds very inviting, right?

    Six-way talks on ending North Korea’s nuclear arms programs are set to resume on Wednesday in Beijing. The North, which has long sought direct talks with the United States, usually holds bilateral meetings with U.S. officials within those discussions

    Sounds like President Bush is the bad guy in this matter! Remind me, who’s building the nuclear weapons?

    Now we will discuss the dishonesty of the reporting on Darfur, Sudan, along with the situation in Africa.

    U.S. envoy says Sudan bombing civilians in Darfur.

    KHARTOUM, Sudan (Reuters) — The top U.S. envoy for Darfur on Friday accused the Sudanese government of bombing civilian targets in its war-ravaged western region and rebels of cynically obstructing international efforts to end the conflict.

    Bashir always denies any attacks he authorizes. He does authorize them, because the janjaweed does not do anything without his instructions.

    International experts estimate 200,000 [It has been 400,000 for 2 years now!] people have died as a result of ethnic[, religious] and political conflict in Darfur since it flared in 2003 when mostly non-Arab rebels took up arms after accusing the central government of neglect. [LIE! It was the Arab janjaweed that was raping, pillaging, murdering, flash burning the land, and committing genocide that started the war.] Washington calls the violence genocide, and blames the government and its allied militia. Khartoum rejects the term and says only 9,000 have died.

    I guess you’ve noticed that I could not restrain myself. Reuters is one of the worst newspapers in the whole world. It ranks right up there with al Jazeera!

    What a lot of people do not understand is that is both Kartoum and Darfur have mostly Muslim people living there. The difference? The people in Kartoum are Arab, the people in Darfur are native and black. They are fighting against Sharia law and genocide. Wouldn’t you?

    These people truly need help, and we may be the only ones in the world that can help them. Our so called leaders would have to change the ROE (rules of engagement). Al Qaida is hiding in the mountains where over 2 million people had to flee their homes as the terrorists moved in to OCCUPY the place. They have many training camps up there, but why talk about that? That isn’t news. Oh no. We’re not at war. Ya think?!

    BTW, I checked. All of the reporters copy/pasted the Reuters article for the Darfur article. Gee, I could do that, and I did not need to go to college to figure out how!

    This does not look good, and the place talking about it is CNN. They were talking of peace a while back, and they still may be. This is not going to help that. No, not at all. Especially since OBL may live in Pakistan!

    ISLAMABAD, Pakistan (AP) — Satellite images show that Pakistan is building a nuclear reactor that can produce weapons-grade plutonium, an American watchdog group said Thursday, warning that it could contribute to an atomic arms race with archrival India.

    A picture taken June 3 shows work progressing rapidly on the reactor at the Khushab nuclear site, 100 miles southwest of the Pakistani capital, Islamabad, the Institute of Science for International Security said. [Continue reading.]

    Let us hope this does not heat up again…

    Thatcher’s (Son) Lawyers Challenge Charges.

    Apparently, he is accused of aiding in the effort of trying to overthrow President Teodoro Obiang Nguema, who has ruled Africa’s third largest oil producer’s for the past 25 years. His claims of innocence will be heard for 2 days. Note: He has been arrested but not charged. They claim to seek only extradition to Brittain.

    Interview.

    Jamie Glazov interviewed Mr. Carl Zinmeister about his book Dawn Over Iraq. He is an imbedded reporter who went back to Baghdad in January for a few months to get the real pulse. Recommended reading. Hat tip to Rob from the Kommentariat.

    It’s about time. “The National Regulatory Commission has shut down its online document library, pending a review to determine what potentially sensitive documents should be removed because they might be useful to terrorists…” Really? Do ya think? Well, do you?

    This is 10/26/04. We were attacked on 09/11/01. Did they have enough time?! For God’s sake, what the heck is wrong with you?

    Karzai Clear Winner
    By Stephen Graham.
    Associated Press WriterKABUL, Afghanistan (AP) — More than two weeks after Afghanistan’s first presidential election, vote counting wrapped up Tuesday and interim leader Hamid Karzai emerged with a resounding victory. Well, well. How about that! I am so happy for Afghanistan, and I will be just as happy for Iraq after their elections. Freedom is on the march!

    Deadly Flash Point.
    Against popular belief, Communist China is NOT becoming more democratized. Free trade is not working. China is our enemy.

    “Relations with Taiwan are governed by the Taiwan Relations Act, which stipulates that the U.S. is bound to assist Taiwan in defense against attack. Congress passed the Act in April 1979, after U.S. President Jimmy Carter stripped Taiwan of formal recognition as the true government of China, and recognized the Communist government in Beijing as the sole government of the Chinese people.”

    “Neither sanctions from the world community, nor the threat of the loss of the 2008 Olympics, would deter China from invading Taiwan, if the moment seemed right….
