Making War is Not Diplomacy

NPR continues to be a forum for Ricespeak as it covers Sec. of State Rice's upcoming trip to the Middle East. Even though the Bush/Rice policy has been to defend and provide cover and support for nearly two weeks of Israeli assaults on civilians and civilians infrastructure in Lebanon, Melissa Block says, "Rice will leave on Sunday to try to find a diplomatic solution to the fighting between Israel and Hezbollah." No, Rice will leave to try and prop up the Bush policy of military dominance and intervention in the region--this is not a diplomatic solution. Then Michelle Kelemen provides further explanation of Rice's view of the situation with excepts of Rice saying that we are witnessing "the birth pangs of a new Middle East!" Kelemen states, "The Bush administration is counting on moderate Arab states to play key roles in the diplomacy, especially in putting pressure on Syria…" Again NPR is adopting US government distortions: Is Saudi Arabia moderate? Is Egypt's dictatorship moderate?
