Oh, and By The Way
Let us now recite the BushCo prayer: thy kingdom come, thy will be done, on earth as it is in Texas.
We're going to attack Pakistan next. I'm still trying to figure out the timing, but I don't think it's contingent on James Baker cutting a deal with Iran or not. I think it'll happen anyway. It's politically expedient for an upcoming election, and comercially necessary to ensure the security of a planned pipeline. Pakistan is arguably the most dangerous nuclear-armed entity in the world (in other words, a close second to Dick Cheney). It would be a shame for those nuclear missiles to fall into the hands of islamofascists.
Pakistan's current leader, Pervez Musharraf, is so skillful he makes our government look like the people who ran your high school yearbook. He has survived more than a dozen publicized assassination attempts, but cannot control his country's border with Afghanistan. It would even be understandable if he wanted to take a little time off, say at a new home on the Chesapeake Bay, or Lake Geneva. I'll do some more de-strategerizin' and maybe back this notion up a little more with sources and links. A loose-lipped friend asked, "Why would does Musharraf have a new English-language book deal, and why is Bush telling people to go out and buy it?" He convinced me Pakistan must be the next move, and it fits like cooties on my Good-Will T-shirts.
