Einhorn the Terrible
A local report that "Robert Einhorn, the new U.S. special advisor for nonproliferation and arms control, is to visit South Korea and other Asian countries in early August" — U.S. Sanctions Tsar to Visit Asia. "But sanctions are peaceful," some say. The non-denial heard round the world (but quickly flushed down the memory hole in America) comes to mind:
- When asked by [CBS' 60 Minutes' Leslie] Stahl, "We have heard that half a million children have died [as a result of sanctions]. I mean, that's more children than died in Hiroshima. And, you know, is the price worth it?" Albright replied: "I think this is a very hard choice, but the price — we think the price is worth it."
