"Another war in the Middle East is the last thing we need and, in fact, I believe it would be disastrous on a number of levels," he said in a speech he was delivering Monday evening at the U.S. Military Academy at West Point, N.Y.

A copy of his prepared remarks was provided in advance by the Pentagon.

Oh, I'm willing to bet Bush is pouting over this one like a child who's been told he can't have new toys.

Just wait. Bush will make a speech in the near future explaining "why" we should be waging war with Iran... acting as if Gates never made this speech.
