President Bush is once again defending himself in a UN meeting against allegations that his methods in the middle were only making the situation worse. He defended himself by saying “This argument rests on a false assumption- that the Middle East was stable to begin with.” Wait, what? Just because a situation isn’t perfect doesn’t mean you can’t make it worse, which he has. An Iraqi public poll stated that the quality for an average citizen was better under Hussein then under the occupation. People, we need to wake up, how can a country who would rather watch American Idol than the news and only about 30% of us participate in the democratic process preach democracy to the rest of the world? It’s a shame.
Mr. Bush also spoke of the Iran nuclear situation, saying, “Iran must abandon its nuclear weapon ambitions.” Now wait again, who said anything about “weapons”, Iran said and still says that their nuclear intentions are peaceful. Russia and China have been quick to put sanctions on their neighbors and it seems that the rest of the UN is complying (except for France) who seems to be the only sane one out of the bunch. Not that Iran isn’t dangerous its just that while their intentions are peaceful we should focus on the problems we already have.
