Bush to speak at UN today

| Reddit | Tumblr | Digg | FARK

He wants the world to "stand up for peace", whatever that's supposed to mean in his mind. Just a guess here, but I think he's going to forcefully promote the fear theme and have something to cry about during the remainder of the election season. Since he can no longer control the GOP Congress, he will be fishing for a new target for blame that will resonate with his loyal following.

Chirac has already jumped into the trap by questioning the value of sanctions so now we can expect another silly round of French-bashing. (I agree with Chirac but his public response is precisely what Bush wants so I would rather see him denied of that opportunity.) Bush's fifteen minutes today will have nothing to do at all with peace and everything to do with domestic politics and preparing the nation for the GOP dream war with Iran.

Had enough?
