Right wing radio host Michael Savage was at it again, this time calling former Secretary of State Madeleine Albright a traitor who should be hung. From his Monday radio show (via Media Matters):
In my opinion, [Albright] should be tried for treason, and when she's found guilty, she should be hung. And when she is hung, maybe the other quislings in our government will get the message that we're going to crack down on them, and that our safety and the safety our children mean something to us.
If we remove [negotiation] from the list -- as Bush followers want to do in almost every case and as the administration repeatedly does -- it means that only [war] and [do nothing] remain. And where [war] is not viable -- as is the case with the U.S. vis-a-vis North Korea (mostly because we already chose [war] with two other countries and are threatening to do so with a third) -- then the only option left is (3) -- do nothing. That is exactly what we have done while North Korea became a nuclear-armed power, and we did nothing because we operated from Rubin's premise that diplomacy and negotiations are essentially worthless, which left us with no other options.
