More Chainsaw Juggling

For almost as long as I’™ve been blogging, I’™ve opined that the Bush regime is simply juggling too many running chainsaws, and at some point, one chainsaw too many would be thrown into the mix, and the whole act would come to a crashing halt. When that happens, someone is bound to get hurt. Based on the fact that Dick Cheney made a surprise trip to Pakistan today to browbeat Perez Musharef into cooperation on Taliban, al-Qaida, and border control issues, it looks like more chainsaws are dropping:

Vice President

Dick Cheney made a surprise visit to Pakistan on Monday for talks with President Gen. Pervez Musharraf on efforts to stabilize Afghanistan. The Bush administration wants Musharraf to be more aggressive in hunting down al-Qaida operatives, and has raised the possibility that Congress could cut aid to Pakistan unless it takes tougher steps’¦

First off, I want to know how this happens: one world leader just drops in on another without a summit being scheduled weeks or months in advance. You know for a fact that Musharef couldn’™t just fly into Washington on a moment’™s notice and get an appointment with Dick or George. So, how does Dick get an immediate audience?

Secondly, doesn’™t Dick read the newspapers? Isn’™t he aware that Pakistan is a hotbed of al-Qaida training camps (and has been for years), and that the Paks hung out the Century 21 ‘œwelcome’ sign for Osama & Co. several months back? Isn’™t he aware that the reason Iran is rattling the nuclear saber is because Pakistani scientist A.Q. Kahn’™s nuclear black market essentially gave the Iranians the blue prints? And Kahn is wandering Pakistan as freely as Osama right now.

Of course, the sycophantic media also seems to forget these inconvenient facts from the very recent past. Wow. This is all news to the newshounds. Maximum leader orders another 3000+ troops to Afghanistan. They’™re anticipating bad things this spring. The Taliban is back with a vengence. Pakistan continues to be an ‘œimportant partner in the GWOT’ even though the Musharef regime has never fully cooperated on GWOT issues.

Ahem.

And all of a sudden, Cheney is trying to twist arms again in Pakistan??

What is wrong with this picture?
