The hypocrite-in-chief is still lusting after war with Iran [UPDATE]

even tho' the u.s. media continues to dutifully report his unending bellicosity, despite the fact that there is virtually NOBODY left who believes a word he says, george is going to keep on beating the drums of war until the little men in white coats lead him away...

read this and see if ya think he sounds like he's gettin' desperate...

President Bush said Sunday that Iran is threatening the security of the world, and that the United States and Arab allies must join together to confront the danger "before it's too late."

Bush said Iran funds terrorist extremists, undermines stability in Lebanon, sends arms to the hardline Taliban regime, intimidates its neighbors with alarming rhetoric and defies the United Nations by refusing to be open about its nuclear program.

"Iran is the world's leading state sponsor of terror," Bush said in a speech about democracy that he delivered about midway through his eight-day Mideast trip, which began with a renewed push for an Israeli-Palestinian peace pact — an accord he said whose "time has come."

Chiding U.S. allies who have withheld civil liberties, Bush said governments will never build trust by harassing or imprisoning candidates and protesters. But his rebuke was general, and he did not single out any U.S. partner in the region for oppressive practices.

"You cannot expect people to believe in the promise of a better future when they are jailed for peacefully petitioning their government," Bush said. "And you cannot stand up a modern, confident nation when you do not allow people to voice their legitimate criticisms."

gosh... where to start...? nah... not worth it... just soak in the irony that the leader of the "world's leading state sponsor of terror," and the leader of a country that is not only setting up all the mechanisms for "harassing or imprisoning" its citizens for "peacefully petitioning their government," and, in fact, is already doing so, is delivering a lecture like this...


obviously, bush's VIEW of the facts trumps facts themselves... now THAT'S executive power...!
“He told the Israelis that he can’t control what the intelligence community says, but that [the NIE’s] conclusions don’t reflect his own views” about Iran’s nuclear-weapons program, said the official, who would discuss intelligence matters only on the condition of anonymity.
