U.S. President George W. Bush, visiting the Saudi capital on Friday, hoped to normalize new agreements that would give the relationship between the two countries a boost. Among them was an agreement for the U.S. to assist the kingdom in developing civilian nuclear power. Another agreement involves U.S. promises to help protect any Saudi nuclear infrastructure with training, the exchange of experts and other support services as needed. Hadley said it would not involve U.S. troops.Assuming this is true---Let me get this straight:
1. Mr. Anti-turrist goes to Saudi Arabia, fake cowboy hat in hand, to beg for oil.
2. He promises "civilian" nuclear technology to Saudi Arabia, home country of ALL FUCKING 19 OF THE PEOPLE INVOLVED IN 9/11.
3. He claims that the US will "help protect any Saudi nuclear infrastructure" without any US troops.
Now this ain't Mathman's or Matty Boy's blog, and it's not Mathy Wednesday, but let's add up these numbers anyhow:
1 + 2 = any future Saudi-based/Saudi-funded terrorists will have access to nuclear material. Fuck shoe bombs and learning how to fly jumbo jets. That's gonna be old school to future pissed-off Saudis.
2 + 3 = Blackwater's mercenary murderers will continue to bilk us out of billions of dollars by "protecting" these nuclear facilities in Saudi Arabia, and Halliburton will continue to bilk us out of billions of dollars by agreeing to build these facilities (but of course, they won't build a goddamned thing).
1 + 3 = Mr. Oil-Chimpy is fucking INSANE.
I tried to google again to find out what other sources are publishing this oil-for-nuclear-technology story. Here's what a google search at 4:28pm Eastern time showed:
Those are hits from the Jerusalem Post (the same outlet that published the story about Bush planning to bomb Iran before he leaves office), Al Jazeera, Voice of America, and --okay--Firedoglake--who's also asking what the fuck?
What the fuck indeed.
