Bush Warns Iran and Syria

January 27, 2005

Continuing to make use of his bully pulpit President Bush warned Iran and Syria they better not interfere with the Iraqi elections. Having read about the president’s words, I was just wondering whether we should expect Democratic Senators like Biden and Kennedy to chide the president for agitating these nice, innocent foreign nations. I wonder if they’re going to criticize him for alienating Muslims. I’m sure Biden and Kennedy were disappointed when they read or heard that President Bush said he believes our problems with Iraq can be resolved diplomatically. How dare he take away another club they can beat him with? The transcript of the president’s press conference where he made these statements is here.
