"Condoleezza Rice: Midwife From Hell"

Every once in awhile, you hear and read something that totally captures what you feel about a person or an event. Matthew Rothschild's article calling Condoleeza the "midwife from hell", is exactly how I felt when I heard this Black stooge of Bush say that the Lebanon represented "the birthpangs of a new Mideast" at her speech in Rome last week.

It would seem that the suffering of Lebanese during the past two weeks, would awaken in Rice some ancestral memory of the suffering of Black people in the United States, but it hasn't. Indeed "Condi" as her recovering alcoholic boss refers to her, is a right wing white man caught in the body of Black woman. Even her predecessor, Colin Powell sought redemption by handing in his resignation to "the worst president in all of American history" as referred to by the "dean" of White House reporters, Helen Thomas.. Rice, while obsessed with ambition, is clearly following in her boss's footsteps as being one of the worst Secretaries of State in history as well. The tragedy of Rice is that the face of "foreign policy" of the United Snakes of Amerikkka is now a Black woman, just as when Powell worked for this administration it was a Black man.

How ironic. Afrikans in Amerikkka have always brought a moral high ground to the policies of this nation both domestically and internationally. Malcolm X's world view of the situation of Afrikans, Martin Luther King's protest of the Vietnam War and more recently, Afrikans uniting to to get the TransAtlantic Slave Trade declared a "crime against humanity" at the 2001 UN World Conference Against Racism, are in this tradition. Not only has Rice abandoned this tradition, she seems incapable of producing a foreign policy philosophy that is independent of the "cowboy diplomacy" of Bush that Time Magazine says has been declared dead.

She is indeed the "Midwife from Hell" and has aborted morality in her role as Amerikkka's chief diplomat.
