Newsflash! George Bush got it wrong

How strange that the "democratically elected"leader of the so-called "free-world" has got it wrong yet again.

In the case of Iraq, Bush's own people told him that there were no WMDs. The ensuing invasion and occupation that occurred despite this information failed to uncover the fictitious stockpiles used as justification for the devastation of an entire region.

Now to Iran. Again Bush has banged on and on about the Iranian weapons program.

"A new assessment by American intelligence agencies concludes that Iran halted its nuclear weapons program in 2003 and that the program remains frozen, contradicting judgment two years ago that Tehran was working relentlessly toward building a nuclear bomb."

By no means is this a reason to breath a sigh of relief in the comfort that Bush won't decide to invade. After all, there is an election coming up, and Americans tend to vote for war mongers.

As long as Iran is enriching Uranium for civilian purposes, there is always enough doubt to justify a unilateral preemptive strike.

On the other hand, Americans could come to their senses and head Bush off, vote him out, get some Democrats in, and end the latest Western tyranny of our times, just like we did in Australia.
