Bush approves nuclear cooperation with India
Dec. 19, 2006
"WASHINGTON - President Bush on Monday signed a civilian nuclear deal with India, even though it has not submitted to full international inspections.
" ' The bill will help keep America safe by paving the way for India to join the global effort to stop the spread of nuclear weapons,' Bush said."
"Huh?" I suspect much of America's inability to understand our president is because the majority of us are incapable of going into that *special space* Bush inhabits. To get there, one has to be able to enter a world of incoherence extremely difficult for rational minds to visit, let alone inhabit continuously. Hence, our difficulty grasping the concept that as a direct result of Bush policy, global terrorism is worse, which shows it's better.
"Every sign of progress in Iraq adds to the desperation of the terrorists and the remnants of Saddam's brutal regime."
By losing Iraq, we are winning Iraq, Bush is saying. Making the world more dangerous, keeps us safer. It's the same logic that allows him to say stuff like "We need an energy bill that encourages consumption," or to hold up to fellow Americans an Omaha, Nebraska single mother of three working three jobs in order to 'put food on her family' as "uniquely American, isnt' it? I mean, that is fantastic that you're doing that," as an example all Americans struggling to stay afloat should take inspiration from.
Fortunately, Bush is able to maintain his credibility among those who count most--his supporting cast of enablers like his vice president, secretaries of state and defense, his attorney generals, all who are able to exist in that same space where Bush lives. A space of detached realities.
Who can forget Don Rumsfeld's wonderful clarity while accessing Bush space when he told us, "I believe what I said yesterday. I don't know what I said, but I know what I think, and, well, I assume it's what I said."
Or "Big Dick" Cheney, who admitted somewhat reluctantly three and one half years after the start of the war to oust Sadam and find his WMD, that “clearly, the intelligence...was wrong,” but assured us the destruction of Iraq, despite bad intel, "was the right thing to do, and if we had to do it again, we would do exactly the same thing."
So, as Americans, we live in a very unique country at a very unique time. We're now a nation able to view the detached realities of our leadership by men capable of manifesting them and casting us all into their psychoses.
And finally, when it comes to doing what America does best, arming the world, proliferating nuclear weapons capability globally and waging horrendous wars of mass destruction, I wouldn't place much hope in our new democratically controlled houses of congress, as demonstrated by our new senate majority leader, Harry Reid, who just this past weekend said he would support an increase of U.S. troops in Iraq!
Apparently, many democrats are capable of sharing in Bush's *special space* of detachment also. Oh, what a better world it might be for us all if only we were able to just go there with them!
