 SOLO Press Release: Memo to President Bush—Put Rice on Ice!

 By Lindsay Perigo

 November 3, 2007

 Mr. President,

 You said a few days ago, "History teaches us that underestimating the
words of evil, ambitious men is a terrible mistake. Bin Laden and his
terrorist allies have made their intentions as clear as Lenin and
Hitler before them. And the question is, will we listen? When it comes
to funding our troops, some in Washington should spend more time
responding to the warnings of terrorists like Osama bin Laden and the
requests of our commanders on the ground and less time responding to
the demands of MoveOn.org bloggers and Code Pink protesters."

 Your words were profoundly wise. But do you realise that "some in
Washington" includes not just your Democrat opponents, but your
Secretary of State?

 I know you've studied the history of WW2, Sir—in particular the
appeasement of Hitler by Neville Chamberlain. Mr. President, Ms. Rice
is a Chamberlain in your Administration. She is wilfully
underestimating the words of evil, ambitious Islamo-Fascists like
Ahmadinejad. She continues to counsel diplomacy while the Iranians
supply the weapons that kill your troops in Iraq. She is deafening
you, Mr. President, to the requests of your commanders on the ground.
General Petraeus has said America is fighting a "proxy war" with Iran.
You, Mr. President, must step up and fight this war, as President
Reagan would surely have done, and cease to be deterred by the
mealy-mouthed weasel-words of Ms. Rice.

 While she appeases the Iranian fascists, she is also grovelling to
Vladimir Putin and North Korea and tacitly assisting the latter's
nuclear machinations with Syria. Mr. President, this woman is a viper
in your midst. Mr. President, Condi must go! At stake is not just your
own place in history, but the future of western civilisation itself.

Gordon Campbell: On Why An Attack On Iran Is Back On The Agenda

Reportedly, Christopher Luxon has the edge on Simon Bridges in National’s leadership contest although there is no firm evidence for that hunch. So, one hesitates about joining a media echo chamber that amplifies Luxon’s chances ahead of the 3pm caucus meeting today. You know how it goes: Luxon doesn’t quite have the numbers, so his people start talking to the media to make him seem like the smart bet. Or even perhaps: Luxon hasn't got the numbers, and his people start talking to the media to talk up his support so that he gets a nicer consolation prize... More>>
