Crying Wolf.... Again.

For much of the past year the Bush administration has been warning anyone stupid enough to listen about what a threat Iran's nuclear was to world peace. Dick Cheney has been especially ominous in his mutterings, and President Bush himself warned that Iran's nuke program would lead to World War III. All the rhetoric was especially frightening since it seemed to parallel the lead-up to the Iraq war.... And I think we all know how wonderfully that one turned out.

Now comes a brand new intelligence report that says Iran abandoned its nuclear program in 2003. And here's the clincher: President Bush already knew about the report when he issued his WWIII warning!

What is with this guy? Did he learn nothing from his rush to invade Iraq? Did he think the facts about Iran wouldn't eventually come out? More importantly, why were so many people gullible enough to believe Bush's pronouncements about Iran? Have they already forgotten that this administration's lies directly led to the deaths of tens of thousands of people and completely destroyed the international standing of the United States, or do they simply not give a crap?

It's a sad state of affairs when the Dixie Chicks have more credibility than the President of the United States.
