The drums of war keep beating

Bush’s Salt Lake Whoppers:

Just as he once called Iraq a “grave threat,” he said in Salt Lake City that “the world now faces a grave threat from the radical regime in Iran.”
Just as he once fused Al Qaeda and Iraq, so he is fusing Al Qaeda and Iran.
Said Bush: “The Iranian regime arms, funds, and advises Hezbollah, which has killed more Americans than any terrorist network except Al Qaeda.”
Just as he once denounced Iraq for “sponsoring terrorists,” so he now does with Iran.
Just as he once denounced Iraq for denying “basic human rights to millions of its people,” so he now does with Iran.
Just as he once denounced Iraq for pursuing weapons of mass destruction, phantom as they were, so he now decries Iran’s pursuit of a nuclear weapon.
And just as he once said it was time for Iraq to make a choice, when he himself had already chosen war, so he now says, “It is time for Iran to make a choice.”
I have no doubt whatsoever about Bush’s intentions.
Hey he can bring out some of those photos Powell used at the U.N. Recycle old propaganda. The question is will the majority be fooled again?
