Can you imagine our clown of a President doing anything "deftly?"
President George W. Bush will travel to India and Pakistan in the first part of March. Although the United States, India, and Pakistan agree on several issues—such as the war on terrorism and trade issues generally—the President probably will face some requests that are contrary to both American interests and international arms control measures. Additionally, Pakistan and India each tends to view cooperation between the other country and the U.S. as inimical to its own interests. President Bush will need to balance the interests of the two South Asian rivals deftly while also advancing American interests.
