The Nuclear Bush and the Nuclear Indians

The Nuclear Cowboy and the Nuclear Indians
By Mark Lysgaard

Like Columbus thinking he discovered India
Bush thinks he’s discovered a friend.
The nuclear industry of emerging India
Shows Bush bending backwards again.

For thirty years the United States
Opposed the Indian government’s derision
Who developed nuclear weapons against
The non-proliferation decisions.

So now Bush and Congress in their last ditch effort
Will open deals for trans-national contractors
Like UniStar, AREVA and ABB*
Remember Rumsfeld’s their benefactor.

Precarious times shift in the wind
As India’s neighbors shift in the sand.
How could the US tilt the powers this way?
Comes the question from Pakistan.

The neo-cons like Bush and his buddies
Profess its not about countries or borders.
It’s about multi-nationals making billions of dollars
For their stockholders the very next quarter.

The largest economies of global scale
Are not countries in the traditional sense
But multi-national’s who undermine
The world’s security at the people’s expense.

*ABB a European engineering giant based in Zurich, specializing in nuclear reactor technolory. Mr Rumsfeld was a non-executive director of ABB who sold nuclear reactors to North Korea before joining the Bush cabinet.
