Halloween is over, but here's something scary anyway: Iranian officials keep saying that Iran's nuclear program is for producing energy, not weaponry. And U.S. intelligence experts have confirmed that Iran is a decade away from having the capacity to produce any nuclear weapons. But just as the Chicken Little in the White House lied about Iraqi weapons of mass destruction, he continues his fear-mongering, only this time to justify an attack on Iran. Back then, he warned us: "Facing clear evidence of peril, we cannot wait for the final proof -- the smoking gun -- that could come in the form of a mushroom cloud." Now he's talking World War III. And he doesn't just want to keep Iran from having nukes. He wants to keep them from having the knowledge to create nukes. He not only wants to control what they do, he wants to control what they know and what they think. Bush wants to be the new Thought Police. So which is scarier: Iran generating nuclear power so the people can have electricity in their homes, or Bush and Cheney controlling what we can and cannot know and think? ###
