Bush Like Big Bang Bang

Larry Johnson:
Barksdale Air Force Base is being used as a jumping off point for Middle East operations. Gee, why would we want cruise missile nukes at Barksdale Air Force Base. Can't imagine we would need to use them in Iraq. Why would we want to preposition nuclear weapons at a base conducting Middle East operations? His final point was to observe that someone on the inside obviously leaked the info that the planes were carrying nukes. A B-52 landing at Barksdale is a non-event. A B-52 landing with nukes. That is something else.

Now maybe there is an innocent explanation for this? I can't think of one.
Innocent? No. Childish? Yes.

Imo, Bush, et al are just aching to be the first to drop the Big One since Truman. You think they'll let a pipsqueak Korean get there first? Or India/Pakistan? Hell, no!

Oh, come on, tristero. That's just bizarre paranoia. Surely, you're not implying that Bush's is so anxious to drop The Bomb that his administration is simply scouring the world to find an excuse, are you? Not even Bush - hell, not even Cheney! - are that insanely immature.

Oh yes, they are and that's exactly what I'm saying. And I've been saying it for quite a while now. If you think he isn't that childishly insane, you haven't seriously attended to Bush's (and his cronies') numerous examples of seriously infantile and irresponsible behavior and statements. Hey, remember when Bush called the Afghanistan war a "crusade?" Or "Bring 'em on!" Or "joking" that it would be a helluva lot easier to rule if the US was a dictatorship and Bush was the dictator? Or the strutting codpiece?

But let's not argue about this. You think Bush is too much of a grown-up not to lust for the big bang-bang, I disagree, but I won't argue. Because there's something more important afoot. And that is finding a good reason for the transportation of nuclear weapons to a military base conducting Middle East operations.

[UPDATE: Good to know Bush is on top of this:
he incident was so serious that President Bush and Defense Secretary Robert Gates were quickly informed and Gates has asked for daily briefings on the Air Force probe.
The only questions is this: Are they investigating the "mistake" or the leak?]
