Bush Ramps Up Iran Rhetoric, Warns Of "Nuclear Holocaust"

countdown-bush-holocaust.jpg Here's the video to Steve's post from yesterday. For those who may have missed it, in a speech before the American Legion yesterday, President Bush continued his rank fear mongering and made clear that he plans on confronting Iran regardless of what the American people or Congress have to say about it. Keith recaps the saber rattling and highlights the ever-moving Iraqi goalposts by juxtaposing what Bush said were the goals of the "surge" back in January with what he is saying today.

And Iran's active pursuit of technology that could lead to nuclear weapons threatens to put a region already known for instability and violence under the shadow of a nuclear holocaust. Iran's actions threaten the security of nations everywhere.

And that is why the United States is rallying friends and allies around the world to isolate the regime, to impose economic sanctions. We will confront this danger before it is too late.

Unlike in 2002 or early 2003, this sort of crap doesn't fly anymore. President Bush simply has no credibility left. That is what happens when you spout lie after lie to a country that expects to hear the truth from it's leader. You have breached that trust, Mr. President, and it won't return to the office in which you currently reside until you are gone.
