President Bush is trying to build up support for the US involvement in Iraq by blaming part of the problems and deaths of Americans on Iran. So, let me get this straight. We are supposed to back our President's policies out of fear of a "going-nuclear" Iran and because Iran is supposed to be supplying Iraqi insurgents with parts of its IEDs. President Bush's support is reported to even be slipping some among Christian fundamentalists.
At the same time, Iran's President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad has been trying to drum up support for continued sacrifice and support from Iranians for the super-conservative and fundamentalist mullahs. He is doing this by telling everyone that the US is going to attack them soon and they can't back down to US bullying on nuclear power.
Is it possible that these two Presidents are actually coordinating their almost simultaneous "tall tale" and "cry wolf" strategies to retain support for their respective policies?
Or is this just their way of sending a message to Hollywood and Bollywood, that they would both like to do a remake of Wag the Dog when they retire?
I can't be the only one who is saying: "How can people in either country believe these loonies anymore?"
