Bush and Emerson

"A foolish consistency is the hobgoblin of little minds, adored by little statesmen and philosophers and divines."

I think Bush and the US foreign policy movers and shakers have been reading up on their Emerson because they seem to be taking to heart his bit about consistency. It's hard to keep up sometimes but let's try to follow. Dropping bombs on civilian populations is ok if we do it but if anyone else tries they will be nuked by the US. The countries that have nukes already, particularly if they are on the Security Council, can have nukes, but nobody else. Unless you are South Africa, Brazil, Israel, Pakistan and Israel. Because as we know these are places where conflict is not very likely.

Iraq, North Korea and Iran = bad = no nukes. Simple.

India and the US reach nuclear deal.
