For aed...some things are best left up to the imagination.

...

Asian "Security" Talks: Rice urges N.Korea to join the talks...what hypocrisy, she refuses to talk to the Syrians who are begging to negotiate over Lebanon. It must be true that having nukes makes the U.S. less likely to attack and more likely to want to talk.
Rice told the meeting in Kuala Lumpur that the United States was ready "at any time, at any place and without any conditions" to meet North Korea

Rice urged North Korea to rejoin negotiations on its nuclear program as 10 world powers held Asian security talks without the communist regime.(AFP/Teh Eng Koon)


When in Rome...
Condi says change the wording...and so it is.
Most of the officials in the room were seeking, at the very least, a phrase that said the group would “work towards an immediate ceasefire,” one of the diplomats said. But Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice refused, and won, he said.

“She insisted it say ‘work immediately to bring a ceasefire,’ not ‘work to bring an immediate ceasefire,’” the diplomat said. He said that the group argued about that for more than 30 minutes before ceding the point to the United States.


Despite that, rumor has it the Neocons want an even meaner and tougher approach to war. Perhaps they have another John Bolton type lurking in the wings.
Will Condi be replaced? Fired?

Maybe she's trying to distract them with her fabulously support-hose-contained tree stumps/piano legs/gams/noodly appendages.

I was expecting a "Basic Instinct" moment. But, she's no Sharon Stone, and there's always the risk that it turns into something out of "The Crying Game."
