Bush On Iran

Bush is issuing more saber-rattling at Iran. The President said the United States "will respond firmly" but invasion is not a current option. The only reason I buy that is because troops are bogged down in Iraq and the American people, as well as Congress, would not support such action.

Here is the part that bothers me.

Bush also acknowledged skepticism concerning U.S. intelligence about Iran, because Washington was wrong in accusing Iraq of harboring weapons of mass destruction before the U.S.-led invasion in 2003. "I'm like a lot of Americans that say, 'Well, if it wasn't right in Iraq, how do you know it's right in Iran,'" the president said.

The president, in an interview with NPR, said the United States was "constantly evaluating and answering this legitimate question by always working to get as good intelligence as we can."

Bush is saying he believe the intelligence maybe overstating Iran's weapons program. Then he proceeds to threaten Iran. The stupidity of that is beyond words.
