Bush As A Modern Day Nero

On Monday, the Bush Administration is expected to sell some of the largest U.S. ports to a United Arab Emirates corporation for $6.8 billion dollars. This is despite the fact that many of the 9/11 hijackers were from this MidEast nation and a strong Al Qaeda organization continues to exist despite UAE efforts to curtail this terrorist organization. Ports in New York, New Jersey, Baltimore, New Orleans, Miami and Philadelphia will be under the control of this MidEast corporation. This could also make terrorist efforts to smiggle a WMD device into the U.S. far more likely due to corruption or security compromises.

Also expected soon is the Bush Administration to sell thousands of acres of NorthWest Federal rural forest land to corporations to pay for education and other needs. Yet the environmental impact of so much land under private business control could be devastating to the environmental balance and health in many areas.

Given all of these new revelations, as well as the ramifications of the record $725.8 billion trade deficit, sometimes it seems as though Bush is playing the role of a modern day Nero. The U.S. is certainly not becoming a stronger nation each day, but a progressively weaker one. More of less is now the rule of law.
