Oregon Newspaper Editors Play Patty Cake With Iran's Nuke Weapon Threat To America
White cake, chocolate cake or yellow cake? Oregon Pulitzer prize winning editorial writers excel at journalistic exposes of horrors at the Oregon State Mental Hospital. But, they just don't get the difference between the palate-pleasing sponginess of angel food cake desserts and the insanity of Islamic terrorists who are pursuing weapons grade uranium from radioactive yellow cake in the Iranian desert.
Editorialists at the Portland Oregonian aren't the only journalistic mystics to walk softly concerning Iran's growing nuclear weapon threat. The same style of let's-not-threaten-or-attack-America's-mortal-enemy editorials emanate from a litany of Oregon newspaper editorial boards...nameless, faceless, exponents of the "official opinion" of the management of major newsrags in Oregon.
It's like the editorial boards are hoping to make up for them being wrong about appeasement of the soviet union, this time they will be right, they are telling themselves. This time maybe acting like scared little girls will work. This time simply ignoring the problem will make it go away. This time aggressive action by the most powerful nation on earth just won't work.
