The eight years of Bush presidency ended on a high note – with Manmohan Singh declaring love for George Bush on behalf of all Indians. But in hindsight …

The nuclear deal that George Bush pushed and prodded seems to be undone. What the NSG agreed at the front door, they are undoing at backdoor.

An international cabal is working on denying fuel enrichment technology to all those countries that have not signed the NPT. Israel and Pakistan have not signed the NPT – and are anyway not really seeking or getting this technology. That leaves India. So, what kind of deal was the Nuclear Deal?

The Bush regime also gave a covert green signal to Christian agencies to declare an evangelical war on India. Not to forget the support (or US inability) to rein in the crumbling Pakistani government.

The two million civilian deaths in Iraq and Afghanistan has become a human rights disaster – which the world has quietly ignored. Are we done or should we put the current Great Recession at George Bush’s doorstep, also?

What about George Bush’s successes? Patrick Chappette may have been right.

Avoiding Muntazer al-Zaidi’s shoe may have been George Bush’s crowning glory.

  1. No 2ndlook post is about attacking an individual. Morarji Desai is the only exception. George Bush is not the issue – but his 8-year term is an issue. The links to the many posts and the cartoon can you sufficient data to make up your own mind.
