FIGHTER JET SALE PAT ON THE BACK FROM BUSH FOR MUSHARRAF, LOCKHEED MARTIN, AND TEXAS

After the assassination of Benazir Bhutto, George W. Bush is letting go through the sale of 12 F-16C single-seat aircrafts and six F-16D two-seat Lockheed Martin Aeronautics (Fort Worth, Texas) fighter jets to Musharraf's Pakistan for $498 million and for services rendered by both Musharraf and Lockheed Martin.

Lockheed Martin is the biggest weapons contractor in the U.S. It's a way for Bush to send some of the people's money home to Texas, as well. The U.S. gives aid to Pakistan out of the taxes paid by Americans. Pakistan juggles the books and spends much of it on arming itself against India when it ostensibly is to be fighting "terrorists."

Obviously, Bush doesn't mind a bit for his cronies to make millions off the U.S. burning the candle at both ends (befriending both Pakistan and India). If the U.S. were really their friend, it wouldn't sell them such evil devices.
