    Mr.Bush is intimidating all of us, which in itself is VERY dangerous as it feeds paranoia. This may be fitting in the U.S.A, but it is not appropriate on this side of the Globe and therefore injecting American paranoid fears in us is a way out of line. Exaggerated fear may make people take drastic measures like starting a war as a "precautious" measure; "before they attack us". I found it very comforting to learn after Putin's recentmost visit to Iran, only a couple of weeks ago, that Iran and Russia have agreed that the Iranian nuclear waste will be transported to Russia. Russians may also build nukes with this material, but they are not as fanatic to blow up the world as easily as the restless comments of Mr.Ahamdenijad indicate, he is ready to do in the name of Allah. Iran has a lot of internal problems, which means that it is not pragmatic of Iran to start a war inspite of Mr.Ahmadenijad's defying statements, which may only be a "show-off" to demonstrate Moslem pride: bragging.
