Condi’s way-back machine

At first I was tempted to take Condoleezza Rice’s “no thanks” to a Congressional subpoena as yet another example of executive branch arrogance. But then I realized that’s she’s actually very busy … resurrecting the Cold War?

OSLO, April 26 — Brusquely dismissing protests by Russian officials, Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice said here on Thursday that a missile-defense system the United States plans to install in Poland and the Czech Republic would pose no danger to the security of Russia.

“The idea that somehow 10 interceptors and a few radars in Eastern Europe are going to threaten the Soviet strategic deterrent is purely ludicrous, and everybody knows it,” Ms. Rice said before a meeting of NATO foreign ministers expected to focus on the missile-defense dispute.

“The Russians have thousands of warheads,” Ms. Rice said. “The idea that you can somehow stop the Soviet strategic nuclear deterrent with a few interceptors just doesn’t make sense.” (Story.) (Emphasis mine.)

Know what else doesn’t make sense? That our Secretary of State, who allegedly holds a PhD in International Studies, thinks that the Soviet Union still exists. (More…)

One thought on “Condi’s way-back machine

  1. Wishful thinking.
    Really, the clowns inside both the Beltway and the Kremlin, really need to get out more. Maybe notice that it’s not, like, 1954 anymore…
