Just because you’re not tired of being lied to, here’s Condoleezza Rice:
Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice and her Polish counterpart agreed to place 10 missile defense interceptors in Poland to defend against threats from Iran and North Korea, not to weaken Russia, the secretary said.
"This is an agreement that, of course, will establish a missile defense site here in Poland, a missile defense site that will help us to deal with the new threat to the 21st century of long-range missile threats from countries like Iran or from North Korea," Rice said yesterday at the Polish presidential palace in Warsaw.
Just just just just stop right there. That stillness you hear is your natural tranquility returning to you. Breathe deeply, exhaling the lie. Tell yourself, as a calming mechanism, North Korean missiles cannot hit Poland; even if they someday could, they never never would; and Iranian antipathy to the Poles does not exist. It’s kind of adorable that Rice expects you to believe this. You will miss her when she’s gone, and you promise to visit her in the Hague.
