...you can thank the wacked-out lefties to whom George Bush, political whore extraordinaire, is now kowtowing.
The New York Times -- which has never met an appeaser it didn't like -- is crowing that Bush is finally taking its advice and is talking to the North Koreans instead of threatening them.
It, like other liberal media and politicians, hails today's "agreement" with North Korea. If only we talk, hold hands and sing "kumbaya," all will be well.
So I thought, just for the hell of it, I'd check out what the North Korean News Agency had to say about the "step toward peace" taken today. I have added boldface emphasis to the comments for the few lefties who read what I say....
Beijing, February 13 (KCNA) -- The third phase of the fifth round of the six-party talks took place in Beijing from February 8 to 13.
The talks that proceeded in a sincere atmosphere discussed the ways of denuclearizing the Korean Peninsula.
At the talks the parties decided to offer economic and energy aid equivalent to one million tons of heavy fuel oil in connection with the DPRK's temporary suspension of the operation of its nuclear facilities.
And the DPRK and the United States agreed to solve their pending issues and kick off the bilateral talks aimed at opening full diplomatic ties.
At the just-concluded talks the parties agreed to have the sixth round of the six-party talks in the future.
In other words, we gave away the store again, just as Bubba Clinton did when he signed a "treaty" with the North Koreans.
We never learn. Sometimes, the way to solve problems does not involve bribery and give-aways to buy "peace." It requires a will to impose honest behavior on the other side.
Which, once again, we have not done.
Theodore Roosevelt was famous for suggesting that we needed to "speak softly and carry a big stick." Today, George Bush -- and Nancy Pelosi, John Murtha, Teddy Kennedy, John Kerry and the rest of the blind fools in Washington -- have spoken softly with no desire to follow through with the "big stick" when necessary.
When the inevitable disaster happens, you can blame our so-called "leaders" as much as the terrorists overseas.
