The world moves left in response to Bush’s reactionary agenda…

What’s the old saying: What goes around comes around. Such is the case with Bush’s far-right reactionary agenda.

In 1989, the Soviet Union collapsed. But, it didn’t take long for the reactionary right-wing Neo-cons to wreak havoc throughout the world.

“A reactionary is sometimes described as an extreme conservative, but whereas a conservative seeks, in the simplest terms, to preserve the status quo, a reactionary seeks to return to the situation of a prior time. In particular the term is used to describe those who are seen to oppose "progress" and particularly revolutionary change, and is used in revolutionary contexts interchangeably with the word counterrevolutionary.”

By 1991, reactionary Neo-cons had engulfed the U.S. in the First Persian Gulf War. Then, they moved quickly to form the Project for the New American Century, a think-tank whose stated purpose was U.S. world-domination:
Without regard for the consequences, even before the invasion of Iraq, reactionary Neo-cons arrogated to themselves unprecedented interference in all areas of the world. In effect, putting the world on notice!

They divided nations into quaint but irrational groups that inflamed and antagonized. They presumptively divided humanity into good and evil that virtually covered the globe and isolated America. They alienated U.S. allies by denigrating Europe into “Old Europe and New Europe” and calling France and Germany the problem.

And while the reactionaires arrogantly asserted U.S. supremacy, consequences nonetheless slowly began to solidify:

Disappointed by the election of Socialist Hugo Chavez as president of Venezuela, reactionary Neo-cons spoke openly about the political assassination of Chavez, thereby alienating South America and insuring a drift to the left.

Fearing too much U.S. influence in the Mid-East, Russia has agreed to sell military equipment to Iran.

Indeed, because of George W. Bush and his gang of reactionary thugs, the world drifts left and it’s coming to the U.S.
