Bush's running to India showed just how scared the Americans are now of the Chinese. No not militarily,at least not yet. Its the economy,stoooopid. China that thrown the economic gauntlet forward to America and America has not idea what hit it and rushed off to make this deal. It was a bad thing to do at this time. A big slap in the face to a muslim religion that is at a crossroads in their history. They have some choices now. They have Al Queda and Iran on one fundamentalist side,the Saudis on another side (we dont know EXACTLY where they are)and the Americans pulling for democracy on another side. The American idea is great.It would allow the people of the Arab countries the right to decide what they what...but hold on now..they did that..and... If you dont believe that every muslim wants to destroy the west then think about what they must think about America. We dont trust the Arabs but how can the Arab street trust us?
