Ignoring rule of law

Posted on Updated on

Keith Olbermann gushed this morning. He drooled all over a female commentator, and not because she was sporting cleavage. It was because Bill Clinton rescued two female journalists from the grip of Pyongyang.

Never missing a chance to build a Strawman, Olbermann, with his myth-making construction crew at MSNBC set about hammering and sawing, clasping together all the strands of hay that would prove to us the superiority of negotiation at all costs.

The two journalists, Laura Ling, 32, and Euna Lee, 36, are heroes it seems. By breaking the laws of North Korea (sneaking across the border of a totalitarian regime’s country) they were seeking to… to what? Get themselves arrested, I’d say. And become famous. They knew far better than Olbermann could, that they would be released eventually. But Olbermann falls for the exact trap that Pyongyang wants him to fall for–the mental miasma of Stockholm Syndrome.

Thank you, Kim Jung for releasing our pretty little ladies! See what good intentions the North Korean government has. If only we’d talked to them. We never talk–we just bomb. That’s all America does is bomb!

That’s exactly the type of mesmerism totalitarian regimes, extremists and hostage takers weave. And the Left just sucks it up. A quick glance at history shows they always release the hostages. Well, at least the hostage takers of the non-apocalyptic type do. Daniel Pearl testifies from his grave what anti-life groups such as Al-Qaeda want. Olbermann and his female cohort went on and on about how the release of the journalists may mark greater openness between North Korea and the rest of the world.

All I could hear was: “Thank you Mr. Terrorist for letting me use the bathroom! I now understand your plight and wish to fully study the Koran.” Stockholm Syndrome again.

Iran arrests an American journalist, and three yeas ago a shipload of British sailors. Now three more Americans. None of these people are heroes. The journalists and three Americans knowingly crossed a border illegally. The sailors gave aid to the enemy by speaking against their country on TV, even though they were treated better than they were in Basic Training.

So we have two problems: Western people wanting the spotlight and entering countries they have no business entering, and people like Olbermann praising  monstrous regime for being so kind as to not imprison them for life or kill  them.

    We need Jimmy Carter’s opinion on this one:

    President Carter, come to the blog!

    Wait, what’s that rustling noise?

    Oh, here comes Bill Clinton…

    I do find it hilarious that Bill got them free when our administration was impotent in the matter. Bill can sure rise to the occasion. 🙂

    Looking back Bill doesn’t seem AS bad as we thought things could get.

    Bill was astoundingly good compared to this. Please, please run again next election, Bill. I’ll vote for you. I promise.

    I heard a good point today that went something like this. Bill went over for their release but the deal must have already been done. Now we just need to figure out what North Korea got for it. If this were true then it would be negotiating with terrorists. Just something to mull over.

    They asked for Bill as a slap in the face to Hillary. This is one of the problems with having a female as Secretary of State; all of the regimes that cause us the most problems also hate women.

    Not to mention that Hillary handled it terribly by getting into a childish war of words with the N. Koreans. Good job Chief Negotiator.

    It’s hysterical to think that a loudmouth douchebag like KO was running his trap full steam for the entire Bush administration, yet we contsantly heard about chill winds and fascist repression of speech. Not sure what they were all smoking but it must have been damned good.

    I’m sure Olbermann has a good stash.
