FORTRESS OF SOLITUDE

Friday

Nancy Pelosi

All right, kids. It’s quiz time!

Question: Who in the United States government is responsible for visiting foreign governments to broker peace treaties?

Answer: The Secretary of State.

Question: How many Secretaries of State does the United States have?

Answer: 1.

Question: Who is the current United States Secretary of State?

Answer: Condoleezza Rice.

Question: With these facts in mind, who the hell gave Nancy Pelosi, the Speaker of the House, the authority to engage in “peace talks” with the Syrian government on behalf of the United States and Israel?

Answer: No one.

That’s right, kids. Despite what the Queen Bee from San Francisco would have you believe, there is only one Secretary of State. And, it ain’t her. That is Condoleezza Rice’s role, and she engages in peace talks at the behest of the Executive Branch, namely President Bush.

There is not one single reason outlined in any American government document that grants the Speaker of the House the authority to engage in such foreign policy measures. But, Nancy took it upon herself to travel to Syria and do just that. As it turns out, her unbelievable arrogance got the best of her. She made a couple of critical errors in her “diplomacy.”

First, she bought into the false idea that if we just sit down and talk with our enemies, the world will be filled with love, flowers, and candy. Don’t get me wrong. Peaceful talks are certainly the way to go with some conflicts. Diplomacy, and not full-on aggression, is sometimes the way to go.

With Islamic terrorists and the countries that support them, this is not the case. This ideology is one that seeks to control the world. Like so many tyrannical movements before it, Islamic extremists do not want to live in peace with the infidels. They want to destroy us. They do not want to live in peace with the State of Israel. They want to “wipe Israel off the map” (a direct quote for the President of Iran). Diplomacy and Peace do not factor into that equation.

The only way to stand against evil such as that is to actually TAKE A STAND. Take an aggressive posture, and stick to it.

Syria has well-known ties with terrorist organizations like Hezbollah and Hamas. These groups have made it their goal to destroy the State of Israel. They also seek an end to the United States. And, they receive support from Syria’s government.

Diplomacy is not going to change this.

The second major mistake Nancy made was the biggest one of all. She went to Syria to engage in “peace talks” on behalf of not only the United States, but also on behalf of Israel! Even if Liberals try to make the case that as a United States representative she has the right to engage in diplomacy (which is an indefensible position, by the way), there is absolutely NO reason that she should be speaking on behalf of Israel. Especially not when she undermines and contradicts Israel’s STATED POSITION!

Ehud Olmert, the Israeli Prime Minister, has stated:

“Although Israel is interested in peace with Syria, that country continues to be part of the Axis of Evil and a force that encourages terror in the entire Middle East.”


Olmert also said that the only way Israel would engage in discussion with Syria is if Syria:

Ceases its support of terror, cease its sponsoring of the Hamas and Islamic Jihad organizations, refrain from providing weapons to Hezbollah and bringing about the destabilizing of Lebanon, cease its support of terror in Iraq, and relinquish the strategic ties it is building with the extremist regime in Iran.


However, when Pelosi spoke to the Syrian President Bashar al-Assad, she told him that Israel was ready to engage in peaceful diplomacy!

Uh…what? Nancy, I think you missed a couple of steps there. It seems to me that Israel had very specific issues that had to addressed before they engaged in such talks. Namely, SYRIA’S SUPPORT FOR TERRORIST GROUPS WHO SEEK THE DESTRUCTION OF ISRAEL! But, Pelosi conveniently forgot to mention that prerequisite.

We don’t have 535 Secretaries of State serving in the United States Congress. We have one.

Nancy would do well to remember that.
