"'I explained that Pakistan and India are different countries with different needs and different histories.' Mr. Bush said at a joint outdoor news conference with Mr. Musharraf on the grounds of the presidential palace, Aiwan-e-Sadr."Funny: I always thought that they were countries who once were the same country, with far too shared history, hence the deep animosity of the present. Maybe Bush could be well served by one of his aides by being introduced to the words Partition, and Kashmir, and maybe even Nehru and Jennah.
Bush continues to play two different games with these countries, failing tactically in his run towards his larger goals, and is giving us only the worst of both worlds: loss of leverage in global nuclear power with India, and loss of power in global democratization and anti-terror with Pakistan.
