    US to send 50,000 tons of food to North Korea

    Apparently, the Bush regime claim the food is meant as a humanitarian gesture, and has nothing at all to do with the nuclear stand off. From MSNBC:

    Seeds and small tools might be provided as well, Ereli said. ''Our objective is to help relieve the suffering of the North Korean people, despite our concerns about the North Korean government's policies.'' U.S. efforts to meet their needs and to halt the weapons program are not linked, Ereli said in announcing the program. ''Our decisions are made on humanitarian considerations solely,'' he said. Almost simultaneously, Assistant Secretary of State Christopher Hill, who is in charge of the U.S. negotiations effort, said, ''I'm more than willing to meet Chairman Kim Jong Il and hope to meet him.''
    No doubt all that food will help to get things moving again. The Bush regime doesn't do anything without a reason, and certainly does not "do" humanitarian gestures out of the kindness of their hearts. See all recent "A Logical Voice" posts

    Couldn't possibly give the US any credit could you ? Pitiful.

    Sorry, anon, states are not moral entities. People within the state may act in moral ways, but any state is amoral. Looking at the Bush regime's history, it is exceedingly hard to believe that they are suddenly concerned about the fate of North Koreans.

    (a) This isn't the first time the US has sent food to the people's paradise.
    (b) Bush has said many times he does not agree with using food as a weapon.

    The trouble with this blog is that the proprietor is so intent on finding every last anti-Bush, anti-American article that it becomes boring to read - same stuff dressed in different ways, common thread being that the US is to blame blah blah blah.

    Do I count as one of the blog's proprietors? How can that be when one of my recent posts praised the U.S. for increasing benefits to veterans? Oh well, sorry to spoil your personal attack against us.

    IMHO Djeb, the difference is that Voice seems to post absolutely everything he can possibly find, however repetitious, that's anti-US, even better anti-Bush, whereas you do appear to apply some sort of common sense "filter".

    I could go to the trouble of searching every post he/she made, but I wouldn't find an agenda, I don't think.

    What I sense from what Voice has posted over the months is that he is anti-something, and that something is anti-state. But he/she doesn't waste his/her time on states that are either relatively powerless or that he/she has no influence over.
