At the Summit of the Americas, President Obama said of Cuba: “I am not interested in talking for the sake of talking.”
This seems a remarkable statement from a man, well, known for talking for the sake of talking. Or talking for his own sake.
If Barack Obama wasn’t interested in talking for the sake of talking, why did he go to mexico and Trinidad? What’s the point or rather, what was really to be gained for America?
In fact, the trips to both mexico and Trinidad seem to be part of a mosaic we’ll call the “American Tour of Shame.”
And why is President Obama now pledged to more talking with North Korea and Iran? Because, it seems, he’ll do anything that is not Bush and refuses to accept that maybe Bush was on to something with both Iran and North Korea.
So on North Korea and Iran he is interested in talking for the sake of talking.
Israel isn’t interested in more talking. They take Ahmadinejad at his word: that he wants to wipe israel from the map.
I’ll just bet most in Japan aren’t ready for more talk with North Korea just weeks after that communist state flew a ballistic missile over the Japanese homeland…..
North Korea said Saturday any sanctions or pressure applied against it following its rocket launch earlier this month will be considered a “declaration of war.”
