Cheney Beats the Drums of War

This is actually a test. What about this story upsets me?

Cheney is threatening Iran with no proof of the accusations he makes? Hint: Because they don't exist.

Yes, I know the Quds force is technically not the Iranian government, but...

The fact he's bringing up the "nuclear bomb" bogeyman?

Neither. Its this quote: "President Bush said the best way to avoid "World War III"..." Yeah, I know its bad punctuation, but its my blog and I can do it if I want to.

Fucking Bush should not be mentioning World War III. Period. Case closed.

No world leader should ever suggest the possibility of WWIII. If its considered inevitable we have a different scenario.

Attacking Iran will be a shit storm of profound magnitude and millions will die. Much of the Mid-East will be destroyed for decades to come and Iran would become the world's largest source of glass (little consolation), but it won't necessarily trigger WWIII. Its possible it will, but a country's leader shouldn't try to frighten the people unnecessarily. Oh shit. I forgot its Dim Son.
Just four days after President Bush said the best way to avoid "World War III" was to prevent Iran from obtaining the know-how to build a nuclear bomb, Vice President Cheney vowed that Iran would face "serious consequences" if "it stays on its present course."

In an address yesterday to a pro-Israel think tank, Cheney stepped up the warlike rhetoric against Iran, most notably by linking Iran's government to attacks on U.S. forces in Iraq more explicitly than ever before.

"Given the nature of Iran's rulers, the declarations of the Iranian president, and the trouble the regime is causing throughout the region -- including direct involvement in the killing of Americans -- our country and the entire international community cannot stand by as a terror-supporting state fulfills its most aggressive ambitions," Cheney said. He offered no new evidence for his accusation.

Via WaPo.

Ya have to give them credit. They know what works and they reuse it.
