that's reassuring

In a yet another speech and brief Q&A session at Johns Hopkins School of Advanced International Studies in Washington today, President Bush explained to the audience in his usual patronizing manner that he wants to use diplomacy to keep Iran from becoming a nuclear power. At the same time, he inserted his customary "all options are on the table" disclaimer into the mix. He also indirectly referred to Seymour Hersh's recent "New Yorker" article describing plans to attack Iran with nuclear weapons to paralyze their nuclear program as "wild speculation."

The pliant corporate media of our nation are reporting this, with their usual air of naive trust, as somehow debunking the idea that we are gearing up for war in another Middle Eastern country.

For some strange reason, I keep getting this horrible sense of deja vu.
