According to this article, from the Herald Sun, Bush has claimed that “all options are on the table” in regard to Iran, and that the use of military force is “the last option for any president”.
What a liar! The Bush regime were always determined to invade Iraq, whatever happened, attacking Iraq was the first option on the table, and was always inevitable, despite what anyone has said.
Bush went on to say “You know we have used force in the recent past to secure our country.”
Yet another lie, a full scale invasion of Iraq was abolsutely unnecessary to secure America, in fact, according to recent polls, Americans don’t even believe this, as they say that attacking Iraq has made their country less secure. Additionally, despite some of the rhetoric which falsely linked Iraq to Al Qaeda, there were no links between the two before the illegal invasion.
Bush continued with his rhetoric, claiming that the invasion provided Iraqis the opportunity to live in a “free society”. Well, I guess if you class a “free society” as one which votes overwhelmingly for parties demanding the withdrawal of foreign troops from the country, yet are ignored by the politicians, then you would agree with Bush’s version of a “free society”.
Of course, Bush made no mention of Iraq’s “weapons of mass destruction”, he’s obviously looking forward to the day when he can launch an invasion of Iran.
