Rice: 9/11 showed threats come from failed states


news.yahoo.com

COLUMBUS, Ga. (AP) — Former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice said a key lesson of the Sept. 11, 2001 terrorist attacks is that the greatest threats to the U.S. can come from "failed states" that cannot control their territory.

Rice said in a speech in Columbus on Monday that the U.S. cannot afford to leave Afghanistan an "ungoverned territory" after invading it.

The Columbus Ledger-Enquirer reports (http://(link tracking not allowed)/qh5Hct) that Rice discussed her relationships with Afghanistan's leaders during Monday's Jim Blanchard Leadership Forum in Columbus. She said that she had to remind h

Oh,yes Condi tells us something we don't already know.But,she leaves out a key point that many American foreign policy wonks leave out:The US government and it's allies the IMF and transnational companies create these failed states so that the military-industrial complex can pillage these places resources.Only now the US-UK cabal has overreached.

So, thats a hint at staying in Afghanistan, till it is "governed" the way the US wants it to be governed?

Great.

Raping and pillaging nations and it's people.

Condi, how about as an act of goodwill, plant some 'rice' fields whilst you're pillaging and raping?

Of course it is a failed state, because we exploit it. A third grader could understand that, but like everyone else, the third grader is lied to by the government as well. She is just spewing the same old junk that everyone in power has been spewing lately. This is one more reason why we need to make sure Ron Paul gets elected. If he cannot better our foreign policy in a term, I have lost all hope for our country.

Go back to sleep, Ms Rice.

Smelling the opportunity to make even more money on this 10th anniversary of the event that happened because your ass was asleep at the wheel?

Gee, we're hearing from/about Cheney, Powell, Rumsfeld, and now Rice, all coming out from the nether regions. Who's next? We need more neo-cons (see www.newamericancentury.org...) and WHIG members (see en.wikipedia.org...) to raise their heads now. And Oh, Rudy! *Dangles some million dollar bills to lure him out....

These people sicken me, as is evident in that I can't even discuss them intelligently anymore with so much information about them and their actions prior, during, and subsequent too 9/11 swirling in my head.

9/11 showed threats come from inside our government. Condoleezza appears to have it wrong, again.

I'm sure we will hear from Rudy soon enough the person I'm waiting to see is Philip Zliekow with all the staffers and commissioners who have been coming out and calling the Zliekow commission a white wash has increased.

It should be written in law that if a government declares war on another country, or even a 'terrorist' group, then these idiot politicians should have to don combat fatigues and get their backsides on the front line.

Instant global peace.

Politicians are a disgrace, politics is a joke. Divide and conquer, that's all it is.

Words of wisdom from the mouth that uttered: "no-one could have ever imagined using planes as weapons"
The woman has ZERO imagination.
She even has her own book coming out in November ::yawn::.
Oh Rapture!

Actually they were friends when the Soviets were experiencing their version of a "Vietnam" quagmire in Afghanistan .... then they were enemies, now they are "enemies of enemies"... which is to say... they are whatever their employers want to call them in the press at the moment....sort of like the politicians who "invented" this scam ....

Define "failed state" Condi.... and you had better consult all the think tanks before you answer... the entire concept is ill advised... unless you think "blowback" is a myth like "freedom" and "justice."

... or utterly corrupt government (aka the US government/UK government/Israeli government/Russian government/Nazi government)...

Or utterly corrupt government organizations (the CIA/Mossad/MI6)...

Or utterly corrupt corporations (military industrial complex)...


Breaking news! Corrupt people do corrupt things to get more power! In other news, the sky is blue!

All the neocons are coming out of the woodwork for this 10th anniversary of 9/11. Prepare for the propaganda level to reach critical mass.

Good for you, Ms. Rice! It might be a little late, but you're finally speaking the truth that Saudi Arabia is a failed state.

Afghanistan, an "ungoverned territory"? How can that be, Ms. Rice, when The Donald, Rumsfeld, had this to say about the country after we went to war there: "a successful model for what could happen to Iraq if individuals were liberated, allowed to vote freely and to work". (8-2002) I want my money back!

I was just talking the other day to a young man who has served multi-deployments in Afghanistan and Iraq. You and your colleagues were so wrong on many things, Ms. Rice, in order to convince Americans to back your plans. Remember how the road to Jerusalem was to run through Baghdad? That would be a laugh now, if it weren't so tragic.

Anyway, this soldier was telling me how he and his fellow soldiers came upon a group of children starting to play with an ied the kids had found. Before the soldiers could get to the children, the device exploded. Before the soldiers could tend to their own wounds, they went around picking up body parts, pieces of the children that were flung all over.

You, Ms. Rice, like Mr. Cheney, will keep talking nonsense publicly in order that you might sleep better at night, and earn some $ while doing it. The soldiers you helped send to war after 9-11 will have neither this catharsis nor enrichment. And the children are dead.

I say that the greatest threats to the U.S. come from people like you who fail to state the truth, in a nation that cannot control their greed.
