Very interesting...

I wonder if she told Xiong what would happen the next time he engaged his mouth without his brain in gear...

"I know what you're thinking. Did the skipper of the Nebraska fire 24 missiles or only 23? Well, to tell you the truth, in all this excitement, he kinda lost track himself. But being that this is a Trident submarine, the most powerful SSBN in the world, and one shot would blow Beijing and its suburbs clean off the map, you've got to ask yourself one question: Do I feel lucky? Well, do ya punk?"

Good come back. However, it's one thing to have the capability to do that . . . .

It is another to have the WILL to to that.

Do you honestly think ANYONE inside the beltway (save for G. Gordon Liddy) has the WILL to do that?

I think it was a much shorter line, though:
"Go ahead. Make my day."

Must've missed this. Is this a new threat, or the threat of a couple of years ago when The Pig was president?

Aw Good Lordy!

She just never disappoints. Gives old General "Nuke Los Angeles" a swift kick (with her pumps, mind you) in the yarbles.

Looks like she took out both column A and column B.

Gotta love her! Just gotta!

Be Seeing You,

Chris

nothing funny about nuking LA or Tennessee, MORON!

Yes there is. That "moron" was clearly speaking in jest and was referring to the horrid state of LA.

LA is the worst city in the US - that's saying something. Losing LA would be the equivilant of losing a tumor the size of a basketball. It grows at the peril of the rest of the nation.

I like the style of the hole thing: First Bush will not meet him, even when he complains that he would like someone higher up to meet with him, then Condi lets him have it. Sends a clear message to those who would dis the good old US of A. Lets see . . . China and Germany down, who's next? France?

Send them a thank you card.

How much would we have to pay them to nuke San Francisco, Seattle, and Boston too? Maybe we could get a package deal.

Xena Rice, also, informed this ChiCom Clymer, that two minutes after GW was president, all of the ChiCom missiles with the now defunct Loral technology had been reprogrammed.

Any missile fired by the ChiComs at any American city, even including LA, would come right back at Xiong and give him a really bad hair day!

If their own missiles exploding over ChiCom cities, army bases, air bases and naval bases wasn't enough, we now have at least 2 Boomers which have all the Polaris on each boomer with MIRV's aimed at the rest of China.

Oh you only say that because your favorite home grown politician Al Gore gave nuclear missile guidance technology to China about 5 years ago.

Whereas they used to only be able to his Alaska, they can now hit even that ex-VP's home state.

California is expecting auto liscenses to go up again. Expect bonds to be proposed to save everything from whales to children, they dumb will pass the bonds and the new property taxes they will generate will go into the general budget.

Let's not get ahead of ourselves...
2 1/2 months after GWB became POTUS, he was searching for the appropriate apology to CHICOM thugs for holding our EP-3 crew hostage.

Extremely not amusing. You don't like California; fine, don't live there (I'm relatively sure you don't). But it's part of the United States of America, for crying out loud, no matter how many elements of southern California culture/society/whatever you obviously hate. Real Americans would die in the millions. Talk about anti-American statements. Get a life/clue/lobotomy - something.

FWIW, I do have a sense of humor (if you doubt it, do a search against my login name and the keywords "Timberline Tales"). But joking that it would be OK for China to nuke LA, SF, Seattle, Boston, etc. isn't funny. I'm all for making fun of liberals and liberal cesspools like Berkeley, Boulder, etc. But not nuking major American cities (or even small ones). Given Oklahoma City, 9/11, etc. joking about millions of Americans being wiped out crosses the line.

Was it appropriate for the President of the mightiest nation in history to grovel and have terms dictated by a thrid-rate basket-case power? You would have thought Clinton was still president.

It was that very incident that made me queasy on Condi. In an interview she gave shortly thereafter, she smiled and almost giggled as though she had made a triumph of it.

Packing the pieces of the plane in boxes, sending a bill for the mess (which was paid if not in full) and keeping Americans hostage were acts of thuggery. I don't see how Bush and Co. came across as strong throughout that debacle. Certainly not Condolezza Rice. She is a compromiser, whatever postures she takes for Chinese dictators or Palestinian terrorists.

Ask yourself...
If Condi Rice was not black and female, would she have been NSA? Wouldn't an ex-mil officer have more experience in the field?

It just smacks of tokenism. Based on GWB's amnesty program, we know he thinks that way.

Ms. Rice has a good mind, is well spoken and is accomplished. I wouldn't call it tokenism. It's her ideas that bother me. It bothered me that Madeline Albright's father was her teacher. It worries me that she is a Russian scholar but seems to have led Bush into a "friendship" with Putin. It bothers me that she seems to take Colin Powell's side of many debates. But no, I don't think of her as the token.

Please correct me if I am wrong, as I am not well versed on CR's resume...

Isn't her background academia? What experience does she have in the National Security field that I or anyone else does not have?

I don't believe she had experience in security. She was hired to educate Bush in foreign policy issues. They got along well, it seems, and he appointed her to the post. I'm not too familiar with the job of NSA. What kind of people usually get picked for that job?
