Ten Years Ago:
Speaking with startling bluntness on an issue so delicate that diplomats have tiptoed around it for years, Newt Gingrich said today that he had warned China's top leaders that the United States would intervene militarily if Taiwan was attacked.
As he left for Tokyo after a three-day trip to China, Mr. Gingrich said he had made it absolutely clear how the United States would respond if such a military conflict arose.
Referring to his meetings with China's leaders, Mr. Gingrich said: ''I said firmly, 'We want you to understand, we will defend Taiwan. Period.'"
He also said, ''I think that they are more aware now that we would defend Taiwan if it were militarily attacked.''
Mr. Gingrich, the Speaker of the House, delivered his message, among the most forceful ever given about Taiwan by a visiting United States official, to Wang Daohan, China's chief representative in talks with Taiwan. Mr. Gingrich said he had given the same message to President Jiang Zemin and Prime Minister Li Peng in Beijing last week.
Chinese leaders offered no public response to Mr. Gingrich today. But on Friday, Mr. Jiang urged him to treat the Taiwan issue with care. . . .
Asked about Mr. Gingrich's statements, a Clinton Administration official in Washington said Mr. Gingrich had received briefings about American policy toward China, but that Mr. Gingrich ''was speaking for himself'' in his conversations with Chinese leaders.
The White House issued a statement saying that the policy of the United States was to ''meet its obligation under the Taiwan Relations Act, including the maintenance of an adequate self-defense for Taiwan,'' and that the Administration would maintain its ''one-China policy, the fundamental bedrock of which is that both parties peacefully address the Taiwan issue. . . ."
In an interview on Friday, Mr. Gingrich said he had spoken with Mr. Clinton, and with Mr. Gore on several occasions, to make sure that their messages to Beijing dovetailed. At the time, he did not mention his message on Taiwan.Comment Posted By milo On 5.04.2007 @ 23:56
So Rick, I have a question: Quoting you is against your commenting policy?Comment Posted By milo On 5.04.2007 @ 09:40
The Right wing blogosphere baselessly accuses Michael Ware of improper behavior, which is denied by Ware along with a challenge to watch the video. The video proves Ware to be correct and the Right wing blosgophere wrong and instead of an apology, you find another baseless criticism to level.
Wow. Just Wow. Wow.

So the Republicans are voting against funding our troops? Right? Glad you were straight on that.Comment Posted By milo On 21.03.2007 @ 17:25
The "left" does not "ignore...the perjury of Clinton." Sane people recognize that the Constitution of the United States says that the President may be impeached and convicted only for high crimes and misdemeanors.Comment Posted By milo On 9.03.2007 @ 11:26

Do the names Robert Hansen or Aldrich Ames ring a bell?
Yup. They "by virtue of their morally superior political orientation" betrayed their nation.

no one has yet answered the question; â€œWhat were 500 tons of yellow cake uranium still doing at the nuclear research center of Al-Tuwaitha in Iraq when American tanks rolled into Baghdad?â€
Sitting on the ground. Where everyone knew it was.
Duh. It was on Olbermann yesterday.Comment Posted By milo On 14.11.2006 @ 16:55
Actually, Reagan's top negotiators and advisors had no idea what he was doing.
And what is this rational you speak of? Does it apply to Cheney and Bush? You do know that "God's gift" is faith speak and not rational speak, right?Comment Posted By milo On 10.10.2006 @ 12:36
