As ye sow...

In the lead-up to the invasion of Iraq, Bush and Cheney deliberately and repeatedly blurred the distinction between Saddam Hussein's Iraq and Osama bin-Laden's Al-Qaeda--two completely separate entities that had nothing to do with each other except they both were Arab, both muslim. Despite an occasional public facade of tolerance, Bush and Cheney have quietly (sometimes loudly) spent 5 years teaching Americans, especially their Republican base, to view all things Arab with the worst suspicion. They have taught us we need no allies in the struggle against Al Qaeda.

Is it any wonder, then, that even steadfast Republicans rejected the Bush Administration's outsourcing of American security to Dubai Ports World? Bush's politics of fear finally collided with his economics of greed. As ye sow, so shall ye reap...
