There is little doubt that traditional relationships in the world are in the process of changing, and in so many different areas. So it is on the international diplomacy scene, where George W. Bush has overplayed his leadership bluff once too often. The evidence that he is no longer the world leader he fashions himself was quite evident this week.
The first piece of evidence is the CNN television interview with Afghan Bush puppet Hamid Karzai, who promoted Iran in a favorable light as "a helper and a solution" against years of administration rhetoric to the contrary. Bush scrambled the next morning to put Karzai back on the leash by refuting Karzai's unauthorized observation.
On the other end of the Axis of Bush-determined Mideast Evil, Iraqi Bush puppet Nouri Maliki was discussing similar border security issues with Iranian officials in Teheran, who then vowed to stand with Maliki. This didn't sit well with George, who waved his empty Piecework-maker about in a threatening manner, shouting, "You're MY Beeyatch, Nouri! Don't go gettin' cozy with Iran!" In response, Iran is insisting on coitus interruptus as the requirement for further security servicing.
Meanwhile, in the 'nother Other Rich White Oil Man's burden, Pakistani Bush puppet Pervez Musharraf was worried that his actions might cause the Pakistani people to invite him to take up permanent retirement, a move which would disrupt George's plans to initiate yet another war he can't win. Musharraf reportedly considered declaring a state of emergency to impose martial law upon his country, but with act of excessive authority to be committed by fears of a similar his American master running rife in the United States, Bush Ho Condi Rice was drafted to soothe Pervez' fevered brow with her sweet little lies, and to convince Musharraf to allow the pending elections to keep the image of democracy alive in Pakistan.
