"To announce that there must be no criticism of the president, or that we are to stand by the president, right or wrong, is not only unpatriotic and servile, but is morally treasonable to the American public." Theodore Roosevelt

Outsource This

We often hear our elected officials, both Republican and Democrat, speak of outsourcing as a reality of the new Global Economy... It is indeed a reality, but don't think they are not playing an active role in its prevalence:
The Bush administration is anxious to court India, hoping that through increased Indo-US economic, geo-political and military linkages, India can be transformed into a viable counterweight to China and one malleable to US objectives and pressure. Buoyed by India's emergence as a major center for outsourced business processing, research and manufacturing operations and the country's growing military prowess, India's economic and political elite is eager, meanwhile, to lay claim to world-power status, including a permanent seat on the UN Security Council.

One indication of the importance powerful sections of the Washington establishment attach to the "India card" is demonstrated by a recent CIA report which reputedly identified India as the most important "swing state" in the world's geo-political system, that is to say a state that could either ally with the US or become a party to anti-US alliance.
So when your called into the corner office on a Friday afternoon... Rest assured, you're not just losing your job, your helping forge an alliance with a burgeoning superpower.
