1350 - The wisdom of Tom Clancy

From alt.books.tom-clancy:

On diplomacy:
Bush's language of diplomacy -

WANTED, DEAD OR ALIVE.

Simple, but it works for me.


Me too, Tom. Me too. And, on Howard Dean and the Democrat Party:

You know, if Dr. Dean becomes the head kahuna of the democrat party, he will arrive in the back of a sled, pulled by nine elephants, the first of which carries a bright red light on his trunk.

<giggle>

(Note that I have not edited Tom's words except to get rid of the st00pid Microsoft "smart" quotes.)

How about Bush's "actions" of diplomacy, they are so different than his "language">

His language says, "wanted dead or alive". His actions say, "Hey I'd rather get that guy in Iraq who didn't hurt us, so I'm gonna send 150,000 after him and only 20,000 after the guy who hit us."

His "language" says he won't do business anymore with dictatorships that oppress their people, because he's now "Mr. Freedom". His actions on the other hand, invite the Saudi's to his ranch in Crawford, and his actions keep doing business with the Saudi's who do anything but promote freedom.

Bush is the ultimate politician! He's gotten us to believe he isn't one! In the midst of his stumbling and bumbling and straight talkin, he's convinced us he doesn't doublt talk! When in fact he does! He is the ultimate politician. I recommend listening to his actions, not hs words.

It's impossible to take seriously any opinion on the Democratic Party from someone who can't even get the party's name right.

It's a statement on the nature of the party: whatever else, it ain't democratic in intent - unless you're a rich leftist.

In this case, then I shall begin referring to the GOP as the Fascist Party, until they change their extremist ways.

Thankfully, it's only empty rhetoric. I'm sure Osama Bin Laden is thankful for that, anyway.

If you mean Mary Sue, yes, I did, on national TV even.

She's a very nice lady. I'll be in Detroit in April for Penguicon, and I'm hoping to see her while I'm there.
