This Dog likes to believe that he can be neither surprised nor shocked by the arrogance and hypocrisy of the Bushbuckers, until reality leaps up and bytes him, today in the form of this report from the L.A. Times on the Bushbuckers' plans to ramp up nuclear bomb production--this in addition to a similar program to replace old and develop new nuclear warheads. So we're threatening Iran and North Korea, after taking out Saddam, over nuclear weapons--bogus charge in Saddam's case--while doing the wink, wink, nod, nod to the Saudi's nuclear program; seeking to abet India; standing by while Pakistan does whatever Musharraf damn well pleases; and returning our own nuclear program to the deepest, darkest days of the Cold War arms race. And the men in charge of these weapons of mass destruction are the same ones who snoozed through the run-up to 9/11, ignored specific warnings about Katrina, and in between managed to bomb Afghanistan into the pre-Stone Age while letting Osama bin Laden escape and to unloosed a blood bath in Iraq. The Dog feels real safe, knowing that his ethically challenged elected representatives in Congress are falling all over themselves to build a chainlink fence--not a Great Wall, not a Hadrian's Wall, not even a Berlin Wall--to keep out illegal immigrants. Well, nothing succeeds in American politics like an enema.....
