This file is a very brief diary and scrapbook of some examples of the Roanoke Times slant. Comments to: firstname.lastname@example.org
Roanoke Times,10/10/06, Pg Va 6: Editorial: Paralysis allowed a nuclear North Korea. Bush didn’t want to negotiate with a member of the "Axis of Evil" and the military was tied up in Iraq. The result was Sunday’s nuclear test.
(And it’s clearly George Bush’s fault)
The North Korean nuke issue started before 1994. (Before George Bush!).
The following link contains sites that are very comprehensive resources on this issue: http://roanokeslant.blogspot.com/2005/06/north-korean-nukes.html
Bill Clinton and his kick-the-can down the road strategy had Bill Richardson (now Gov of New Mexico) and Jimmy malaise Carter negotiate One-on-One with North Korea to stop their nuke development. Clinton gave them money, fuel and food for a "promise" to stop nuke development. http://www.foxnews.com/story/0,2933,220137,00.html
The George Bush team discovered that the Koreans had cheated (imagine that!) and had made great progress during Clinton’s tour. Perhaps Clinton was the one who was "paralyzed" in the oval office!
George Bush has done exactly what all the multinational and UN lovers have demanded he do. Participate in 6-party talks with Korea and its neighbors. Without the "cowboy" go-it-alone saber rattling that the RT Editors and the Democrats and the other left-wing media found so disturbing during the last election.
The reason for 6-party negotiations is that this is NOT just a United States issue. This is a world issue and the most affected countries are within 1,000 miles of Korea. And guess what? It worked! China, South Korea and Japan are mad as hell and they’re not going to take it anymore! They are actually getting serious about this bad neighbor. With one-on-one (bilateral) talks this test would be just another American issue as it was with Clinton.
Talk about paralysis: --- Clinton’s "paralysis" also continued while thousands of terrorists went through the Taliban training camps, the terrorists bombed the World Trade Center and our embassies and our ships and prepared for 9/11.
-The Roanoke Times Editors are once again with Hillary. Folks who have a clue are with McCain who clearly stated today: This is yet another example of the Clinton failed policies.
Or as Bill said on FOX last week: "I tried, I failed".
