It seems to me that in that Iranian climate, you have to have air conditioning.
And keep in mind that U.S. intelligence experts have confirmed that Iraq is 10 years away from having the capacity to produce nuclear weapons. And Bush's buddy, Russian president Vladimir Putin, also insists that "there is no evidence to suggest Iran wants to build a nuclear bomb."
But that doesn't matter to Bush. He's fancies himself a cowboy, and he's itchin' for some action.
The Bushies used a similar tactic in the run-up to the Iraq War. They said that Iraq had weapons of mass destruction. Rumsfeld claimed to know exactly where they were. They insisted that Saddam was buying yellowcake uranium from Niger. Of course, none of it turned out to be true, but it nevertheless gave them the excuse they needed to launch an unprovoked war of aggression against an unarmed Iraq.
And now it feels like deja vu, only this time with nukes. Iran might not have them yet, but we do. And Israel does. And Bush is now officially a lame duck, so he can focus his aggression wherever and however he wants to. He's got nothing to lose. It's a cowboy's fantasy come true.
I fear for us as a nation, but I fear even more for the innocent citizens of Iran. If Bush has his way, the plight of the Iraqi civilians might seem like a picnic compared to what the Iranians could face.
I hope Congress can stop it.
This is serious, dangerous, scary stuff.
