George Bush yesterday ramped up the war of words between the US and Iran, accusing Tehran of threatening to place the Middle East under the shadow of a nuclear holocaust and revealing that he had authorized US military commanders in Iraq to "confront Tehran's murderous activities,"
He's just figuring this out? Oh boy........
Yes, in response to a couple of comments, he mentioned Iran before but he's never done anything about it. It's old news -- nearly 30 years since hostages were taken at the American exbassy in Tehran. Iran probably posed a much greater threat to American security than Iraq ever did and yet they essentially have gotten a pass.
The problem is that this administration's credibility is so low that you don't know when to believe or trust what they say. It's ironic that whenever the political winds start blowing the wrong way for Bush it seems that he drags out the "national security" dragon to breath smoke and fire on us so that we all bend over and shut up. We've been in Iraq now longer than we were actively fighting World War II. It's high time Congress and the American people stand up and demand real accountability, something this president has failed to deliver.
