The Dog that Didn't Bark

John Batchelor made a nice Sherlock Holmes reference tonight. He thinks the administration and the lapdog press are ignoring a major international incident... in order to not start a more major one.

Should the administration be praised for letting the Chinese off the hook? Oh we dasn't offend them eh? We owe them too much money maybe?

At the same time Obama was doing some tough talk on his surprise visit to Afghanistan. He sounded so much like Bush as I listened to it on an audio stream I could picture a "Mission Accomplished" banner in the background.

So, will Obama need a second term to finish correcting all the "problems" Bush left for him? Doesn't sound like what was promised to me. I guess eviscerating the middle class is taking longer than he thought. In the mean time how many provocatons will we ignore through the North Korean proxies?

Here's the quote from JB:

What connection does the shoot order have to threats against the US issued by Beijing over the last months? The threat to retaliate for the Taiwan warship deal? The threat to retaliate for the Dalai Lama's visit to the White House? The threat issued when Treasury and the White House accused China of currency manipulation? The threat against Google and other corporations operating on the Mainland? The Beijing regime has piled up a list of grievances over the last year. Is the shoot order in the Yellow Sea a push-back?

Now go buy a book:

Yes, I am engaging in totally ineffective monitization, but this new Amazon gadget is pretty cool anyway for the occasional product reference.
