Rice is retarded

She tries to do an off the cuff speech on the Palestinian Israeli conflict, tries to make a comparison between Black segregation history and israelis and palestinians, and ends up, in her attempts to make everyone happy, completely offending both sides.

Meanwhile, Rice, speaking after Livni, reflected on
her childhood in the segregated South and said it allowed her to better
understand both sides of the Israel-Palestinian conflict.

[...]

She told delegates that when a local church was
bombed by white separatists, four girls were killed, including one of
her classmates.

"Like the Israelis, I know what it is like to go to sleep at
night, not knowing if you will be bombed, of being afraid to be in your
own neighborhood, of being afraid to go to your church," she said.

She added, however, that as a black child in the South,
forbidden to use certain water fountains and shunned from certain
restaurants, she was also in a good position to understand the feelings
of the Palestinians.

"I know what it is like to hear to that you cannot go on a road
or through a checkpoint because you are Palestinian," she said. "I
understand the feeling of humiliation and powerlessness."

Oh..OK.. So, the Israelis are both the white segregationists and the black Bomb victims, and the Palestinians are the segregated blacks and the white supremacist bomb makers. Is that your point? So..ehh..ok..hmm..oh..I get it..you are trying to say they are both black, and thus victims? Or is it that they are both white, and thus assholes? I am sorry, I am lost here. I am sorry. I just don't speak Rice!

    How many times have I observed blog contributors noting the present day conditions and laws of one nation with the past, HISTORICAL, condition or laws of another? Countless examples. Why? Because in those examples if one compares the present day with the present day, one of the two examples will demonstrate progress while the other demonstrates continued failure. Rice Speak, dredging up the past (her personal history in this case) and then moving on with some kind of argumentative juggling act, is actually more prevalent than most ever notice.

    Good catch.

    My 2 cents: I used to live in the neighborhood and I want nothing to do with both peoples.

    Whatever the hell they are, get away from these people and if you have any humanity stop the frigging peace process that is killing more people than war and that NO ONE likes, other that US presidents thinking about their sucky legacies (Carter Clinton and now Bush)

    Kill the peace process, and let (more) people live.

    Good to have you back.

    I often wonder how this women reached the level of success she has reached in her professional life. She is neither overly bright, although she is well educated, nor is she overly diplomatic, charismatic, charming or attractive. It really does just baffle the mind…who the hell is she sleeping with?

    .I think that in Rice case it is not “who the hell she is sleeping with” but “who the hell is was doing business with”
    she served on the board of directors for the Carnegie Corporation, the Charles Schwab Corporation, the Chevron Corporation, Hewlett Packard, the Rand Corporation, the Transamerica Corporation, and other organizations.
    Any questions?

    I think the breast feeding Fatwa was originally meant for Rice and Bush. Those two share so much in common like the oil companies etc…. mentioned by ella.

    Oh well count down everyone can’t wait to see their faces gone from headlines and for them to have a terrible place in history.

    The level of ALL your remarks is strictly reductionist, sensasionalistic and anti-women to boot. Pretending to be confused by Rice’s comparisons and inferring that she equates Palestinians and Israelies with both blacks and whites in the American segretation era is a malicous mischaracterization and a feeble-minded attempt at discrediting an American diplomat. Obviously all this is driven by anti-American fervor, an easy way out of any serious analysis and an easy way to fish for cheap compliments. Seeing where all this comes from, you don’t deserve a serious riposte, just a spank!

    If Rice should be treated like a war criminal than majority of other politicians should be treated as white-collar criminals, excluding, of course, politicians in the ME. Most politicians there should be removed and shot without trial being combination of both.

    Believe it or not, what Rice has said is progress. The vast majority of American politicians and media, local and national, give Israel unconditional support and paint Israelis as the only victims of the conflict.

    But Ella…how did she even get 2 be on all of these boards in the 1st place? who did she know or who did she do? seriously..what is it about this woman that has allowed her to attain such a high level of success when coming from such an average ordinary background and being an african american and a woman 2 boot…

    if she is gay…maybe she is doing dick cheney’s daughter? i don’t know…somebody please explain it 2 me…i’ve always heard that attractive women can attain a higher level of success than their average counterparts…she slipped through the cracks people

    First, I agree with Objective — the comments are idiotic … why does it matter with whom she sleeps? Oh, because she’s a woman. I see.

    Second, her point is that both sides have a bit of asshole and a bit of victim — neither is innocent, but both have legitimate claims. That understanding of the other’s position is critical if there will be peace. (It’s something I encourage you all to try.)

    And third, she may not be my choice for diplomat, but she’s currently the moderate voice in the administration, and anything she can do to keep Cheney from having his way and invading Iran is welcome, so far as I’m concerned.

    The issue is the mistake so many Westerners make when dealing with the region. They try to understand the region by analogy to their own experiences in the West. Then they propose solutions as if they were dealing with the Western analogs of these real and living peoples in the ME- peoples who are quite capable of expressing on their own what they actually want. Then the ME gets a never-ending peace process which neither side fully supports and a lot of continuing death and terrorism to go with it. That is why I am with Sandmonkey, Rice is a PR woman pretending to be a diplomat. what an idiot!
