Michael Rectenwald responds to a CLG visitor who declares that 1441 is "proof of diplomacy"
Michael Rectenwald's reply --March 16, 2003:
Diplomacy does not tell
people how it's going to be regardless of the facts, and strong-arming,
bribing, black-mailing and threatening other nations to simply adopt
your irrational and substanceless position. Diplomacy involves negotiation,
discussion, interchange and usually, reasoned and reasonable compromise.
All your dictator did was try to bull-doze over the will of the world
like he has bull-dozed over the will of the American people, beginning
with the theft of the election, to this very day. The only difference
is, Europeans aren't brainwashed dailly by the rightwing affiliated
corporate media, as are 1/3 of the American people. Nor are they afraid
of his use of rhetorical and political tactics, as are the cowardly
Democrats in Congress. So, given this, it will require the enlightened
amongst American citizens to oppose him here, while 90% of the world
opposes him everywhere else.
