Quote of the month
"Throughout history, it has been the inaction of those who could have acted; the indifference of those who should have known better; the silence of the voice of justice when it mattered most; that has made it possible for evil to triumph.
- Haile Selassie

Baldwin watch

alec baldwinThere is little change on the Baldwin front. While the administration he so detests is still in office, Mr. Baldwin has yet to abandon his luxurious US address.

IRAQ
Ron Peacock
Wooster, OH(PN)

     "We've had enough of conversation with Saddam Hussein, we've had enough talk, all he understands is action and we must act now!"

Saddam Hussein    Strong words! Fighting word! Words of conviction? Admittedly, these are strong words. On the surface, they even appear to be fighting words. Surprising as it may seem, this is not a quote from George W. Bush, Dick Cheney, Colin Powell nor Donald Rumsfeld. The above statement was pontificated by my favorite South Dakotan, Tom Daschle, in 1998. To confuse matters more, the then President, Bill Clinton went on record in 1998 to say, "His regime threatens the safety of his people, the stability of his region, and the security of all the rest of us. Some day, some way, I guarantee you, he'll use the arsenal. Let there be no doubt, we are prepared to act." Full Story


Axis Of Evil Part II
Ron Peacock
Pyongyang, North Korea(PN)

north korean flag     The world becomes a more dangerous and darker place this week, as we have learned that North Korea has continued to pursue it's nuclear weapons program in violation of a 1994 Geneva agreement. One of the provisions agreed to in 1994, was to allow inspections to verify that the communist regime did not have the material such weapons would require. Pyongyang has yet to allow the inspections. Does this scenario wreak of a familiar stench?

   Once again, the failed policy of the past administration has come home to threaten world security and peace. Treaties, agreements, nonproliferation acts, etc., are useless unless we, and the other world bodies, are capable of and willing to enforce the provisions outlined in these accords. Signing a piece of paper, does not a safe world make! In the future, we cannot allow our elected officials to blatantly disregard the terms outlined in past or future negotiations.

   It will be intriguing to observe the reaction from the Bush administration. We do not feel the US is capable of mounting a proper response. After a decade of reduction, military and security assets are not at the level or the preparedness needed to confront these multiple threats. So, we will reap the whirlwind of past neglect. As Winston Churchill so aptly said, during the 1930's military build up in Germany, "if you fail to confront an aggressor from the vantage point of strength, you may ultimately have to confront an even stronger enemy from the vantage point of relative weakness." Churchill's words were not heeded then, shall we once again discard such wise, if not prophetic, advice.

   The atomic genie is out of the bottle on the Korean peninsula, George Bush will have no alternative but to use diplomatic pressure to keep the repressive North Korean communist regime in check. In all probability, the US is not capable of any other action. We missed the opportunity to react responsibly in 1994, the barn door was left open, the horses have escaped, and you can't turn back the hands of time.

So, What Is With Democratic Voters

And Florida?

voting machine    The Pavo News is a bit confused. We were led to believe the Florida voting fiasco of 2000 was a Republican conspiracy, but recent events in the Sunshine State seem to contradict this account. Following a $30 million voting machine upgrade, Miami-Dade and Broward counties have once again led the charge of total incompetence. Full Story
