Bush giving away the farm again - this time in Pakistan.
Just in case you thought Bush was only forking over the nukes to India, here's the fork over for Pakistan - no more objections to building a natural gas pipeline from Iran to Pakistan to India.

"President George W Bush has indicated the US has dropped its staunch opposition to a proposed gas pipeline from Iran to India via Pakistan.
Mr Bush said on his visit to Pakistan he understood the need for natural gas in the region and that the US argument with Iran was over nuclear weapons.

The $6bn project for the 2,600km (1,625 mile) pipeline will bring Iran revenue, Pakistan transit fees and India energy.

The nations hope to start construction in 2007, with key talks due this month."

Bush isn't so worried about sanctions for Iranian "nookes" that he can't fork one over for the gipper in Pakistan.

Way to go, Bush! At this rate, you'll have sold the entire farm before you leave office!

We can then call our country the United States of Foreign Ownership and Influence. We won't be Americans anymore, we'll be...er...slaves?

Hmm.

Guess we know why they're smiling.

1. Bush is farting out of his mouth. India needs the gas for our jobs.

Shipped over there.

And why support a continent with BILLIONS on it rather than the <1 billion North America is beyond me... the energy and other problems will remain. Killing America won't make a difference; not when the costs of energy usage are merely transferred, not eliminated.


Oh yeah. If Kerry was a flip-flopper, does that mean Bush has proven beyond reproach he is a FLIP-FLOPPER? (size by comparison is deliberate...)
