Bush/Cheney Warn They Will Start WWIII

The New York Times reported this morning: “President Bush issued a stark warning on Iran on Wednesday, suggesting that if the country obtained nuclear arms, it could lead to “World War III.” For some reason that is totally unclear to me, the President and Vice President of the United States are itching to start World War III. Why they would want to end life on earth is a mystery. They are insane of course. The White House has decided to make Iran the fall guy in the Bush administration’s plan to start a nuclear war in the Middle East. If Iran obtains nuclear arms, Bush/Cheney plan to mount a nuclear attack on Iran and, like the mother who kills her child for crying, they will say “Look what you made me do!” Another thing that is totally unclear to me is how the Bush administration can castigate other countries for committing the exact same sins it commits. The US signed a Non-Proliferation of Nuclear Weapons Treaty in 1968. And yet, under the Bush administration, the US has not only increased its stockpile of nuclear arms, but the US has also been devising new nuclear weapons and has been stockpiling them. The current White House says torture is not a good thing. But the US merely changed its definition of torture and continues to torture political prisoners in horrendous ways. The current White House tries to export the concept of democracy to other countries while it practices fascism and freely and notoriously violates the concepts of democracy at home. The man who cannot (or stubbornly will not) pronounce nuclear correctly, George W. Bush, is mentally challenged and probably does not understand that a nuclear war would end life on earth or at the very least make life on earth a living hell, even for rich Republicans. But what is the excuse of the Republicans in the Bush administration who are not insane neocons? I cannot help wondering if there are secret meetings going on in Republican homes and caucus rooms hatching plots to assassinate our leaders.

I wish people would lay off the 'nookyoolar' as part of Bush being stoopid, for the simple reason that Jimmy Carter mispronounces it that despite being a nookyoolar submarine engineer. Jimmy Carter isn't stoopid and so it shouldn't be part of what makes Bush look stoopid.

It's simple, really. End-Times fundamentalist Armageddon, preceded by The Rapture, in which Bush, et al, are swept up into the sky.
These people really do believe this stuff.

What blows me away is the hypocrisy of Israel having nuclear weapons, refusing to sign the NPT, and refusing to submit to IAEA inspections. This is everything Bush is accusing Iran of, and nobody except the Gulf States are saying a word about it. We shovel $12 million each DAY into Israel, and we can't get them to go along with the rules we expect the rest of the world to play by? Israel has backed and armed some of the most repressive regimes on the planet - countries even we wouldn't touch - but they are somehow above any criticism.
