He sees himself as unaccountable to anyone but himself.

It still amazes me we elected this moron.

I wont leave this portion of your post unaddressed.

So many people bash Bush for believing pre-war intelligence about Saddam's government possessing WMD's. And this wasn't just American intelligence, either. Many countries, even those opposed to the war, believed that Saddam had them. Countries like France, Germany, Russia, Saudi Arabia, etc.

But when Bush believes the intelligence, as most did, he gets ripped for it. And now, we have a SINGLE intelligence report that claims that Iran suspended its nuclear weapons program in 2003. The President isn't buying it, and now he's being ripped for it.

There is ample evidence that this administration cherry picked and encouraged the 'intelligence' you speak of regarding Saddam. It was a fait accompli.

As each justification for the war became discredited, a new one took its place, until we arrived at a dizzying array of justifications so vacuous it will take historians entire libraries to describe.

The height of hypocrisy is using the 'intelligence' to justify one war, and then ignoring the 'intelligence' to pursue another.

We did not elect a leader to go to war on his gut.

Our nation requires a President. Not a cheap tarot reader who thinks he has the corner market on truth.

You speak of shady characters? I think you need look no further than Pennsylvania Avenue.

Thank goodness there are term limits.

Deny ignorance indeed.

You may be right

But I also have harsh memories of a Secretary Powell
sitting in front of the entire UN shows charts, graphs
and photos of bunkers in Iraq containing WMD.
And we found NOTHING !!!

I just don't believe the American people are gonna stand by
and let our country invade Iran on a document from a congress
that is not even in the intelligence business. Who are they to
say their intelligence is reliable when our own CIA says it ain't.
Something smells fishy in Denmark. Not all players are playing
off the same sheet of music.

Course ole dub-ya will probably concok some sort of event
like those Iranian boats or another 9/11 to get his way and send
our boys to Iran.

What a sad day in history as Bush is already going down in
the anals of history as the worst prez ever. but I don't think
he wants to add war crimes to his resume. He will be impeached
if he invades Iran too. A senator has already said he would
start hearing on impeachment it that occurs.

My best advice to Bush right now is:
Sit down and shut the he!! up til you
are removed next January.

If anything does happen to Itan, it's more likely to be cruise missile and air strikes.

I don't think even bush is enough of a lunatic to actually invade with ground troops.

Then again, with bush, you never know.

And this is one of the problems I have with "leaders" - they put brave lives on the line in order to further their own ambition and/or money making schemes.

Tony Blairs appointment as middle east envoy was one of the funniest things I've read in years, given his history of backing whatever bush wants in the region.

I'm starting to think that he was given the post only to help drum up support for bush's plans to strike at iran - and he has been strangley quiet during bush's rhetoric tour.
My guess is that he'll come out now bush has left to reinforce the message, albeit it in a more toned down format - blair doesn't do aggression very well, when he's talking, but he's bush's lapdog and we'll see that soon.
