Duplicity, redux


The Preznit President of the United States, 28 April, 2005:

First, we must better use technology to become better conservers of energy. Secondly, we must find innovative and environmentally sensitive ways to make the most of our existing energy resources, including oil, natural gas, coal and safe, clean nuclear power.

Third, we must develop promising new sources of energy, such as hydrogen, ethanol or biodiesel. Fourth, we must help growing energy consumers overseas, like China and India, apply new technologies to use energy more efficiently, and reduce global demand of fossil fuels.

With me so far? Nucular, excuse me, nuclear power, good; applying new technologies in growing overseas nations and reducing the global demand on fossil fuels, good. And remember our “big plan” for ending terrorism? Spread freedom.

Okay. So explain this to me, someone, please:

See, what they recognize is that — what America recognizes, and what Great Britain, France, and Germany recognize, is that we can’t trust the Iranians when it comes to enriching uranium; that they should not be allowed to enrich uranium.

And what the Iranians have said was, don’t we deserve to have a nuclear power industry just like you do? I’ve kind of wondered why they need one since they’ve got all the oil, but nevertheless, others in the world say, well, maybe that’s their right to have their own civilian nuclear power industry

I guess this would be another of those great “do as we say, not as we do” moments.

never prouder to be American, no sir.
