George W. Bush & Pakistan = Nuclear Sales to its neighboring country, India

* While Osama bin Laden is hiding out in a high-walled compound approximately 60 miles from the capital of Islamabad, Pakistan – with Afghanistan to the left of ’em  and India to the right…♫”here I am, stuck in the middle with you”♫ – George W. Bush has war with Afghanistan (and with Iraq, of course, at 10X the monetary expense as his administration’s involvement in Afghanistan); and then he decides to give Pakistan’s neighboring country, India, nuclear fuel. So, to summarize, Bush has no f*ckin’ clue that Osama bin Laden is lounging in Pakistan, while he muddles about in the Middle East wasting money and lives…and, to make matters worse, Bush antagonizes Pakistan by providing India with nuclear capability.

EXCERPTS:

“President George W. Bush reversed a decades-old ban on nuclear cooperation with India on Monday, signing legislation allowing the United States to sell civilian nuclear fuel and technology to India for the first time since that country tested a nuclear device in 1974….

The White House counters that the pact serves American strategic interests by strengthening ties between India and the United States, the world’s two largest democracies, and that it has no plans to offer a similar deal to any other country, including Pakistan.”
