Iran - President Bush's Broken Dreams

Still babbling, but the president and Vice President Cheney know that their grand plans for another war -- against Iran -- are not going to take shape. Publication of the latest NIE laid it to rest. Now that their lies about Iraq has become public knowledge, Bush and Cheney will not be able to con the nation to allow them to launch preemptive strikes.
  • "Look, Iran was dangerous," Bush said. "Iran is dangerous. And Iran will be dangerous if they have the knowledge necessary to make a nuclear weapon."
We heard that before. The president, however, has a habit of not remembering the past. One could imagine the disappointment of the neocons who support war but don't serve in them. A prime example is Vice President Cheney who took four (or five) deferments during Vietnam. Shameless and utterly unscrupulous.

In response to persistent questioning about the new National Intelligence Estimate (NIE), a declassified summary of which was released yesterday, Bush emphasized the review's finding that Iran had a covert nuclear weapons program until 2003, when Tehran halted it under international scrutiny and pressure.

"Our 'neoconservatives' are neither new nor conservative, but old as Babylon and evil as Hell."
-- Edward Abbey (1927-1989)
