(“War is Peace. Hate is Love. Slavery is Freedom. 2+2=5.” Bush says “For the sake of peace, the world must not allow Iran to have a nuclear weapon.” Iran isn’t attempting to get a nuke. They aren’t bombing the Green Zone. Israel wanted us to go after Iran before we went after Iraq, according to neocon insiders. Iran is a democracy; their President was elected (unlike ours). Iran has a massive army, and will garner regional and international support were we to attack. And in the face of all this, President Bush thinks the way to “peace” is to bomb Iran. He is unstable and MUST be removed from office. Impeach now.)
