Bush Logic

All right, let me see if I understand the pResident's logic correct.

We ignored the United Nations
in order to make clear to Saddam Hussein
that the United Nations cannot be ignored.

We waged war to preserve the UN's ability to avert war.

The paramount principle was that the UN's word must be taken seriously,
and if we have to subvert its word to guarantee that it is, then we will.

Peace is too important not to take up arms to defend.

Did I get that right?

Furthermore, if the only way to bring democracy to Iraq
was to destroy the democracy of the Security Council,
then we are honor bound to do that too.

Why? Because democracy, as WE define it,
is too important to be stopped by a little thing
like democracy as THEY define it.

Also, in dealing with a man who endured no dissension at home,
we could not afford dissension among ourselves.

We had to speak with one voice against Saddam Hussein's
failure to allow opposing voices to be heard.

We sent our gathered might to the Persian Gulf to make the point

that might does not make right,
as Saddam seemed to think it did.

And we twisted the arms of the opposition
till it agreed to let us oust a regime
that twisted the arms of the opposition.

We went in to rid the world of a ruler
who used weapons
that indiscriminately killed people,
by using that weapons indiscriminately kill people.

We kidnapped and tortured people
to stop a regime that regularly
kidnapped and tortured people.

We could not leave in power,
a dictator who ignored his own people.
And if our people, and people elsewhere in the world,
fail to understand that, then we have no choice but to ignore them.

Yeah, lets go get Iran!
