Rice Defends Raids on Iranian Targets
AP Diplomatic Writer

JERUSALEM (AP) -- U.S. raids that President Bush approved against Iranian targets in Iraq are part of broad efforts to confront Tehran's aggression, Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice said Saturday.
"The United States is simply responding to Iranian activities that have been going on for a while now that threaten not just to destabilize the chance for Iraq to proceed to stability but also that endanger our forces," Rice said before meeting with Israel's foreign minister.
Bush approved the strategy several months ago, U.S. officials said, in response to what Washington claims is Iran's support for terrorists inside Iraq and the alleged funneling of bombs to anti-U.S. insurgents.

We think they are providing help to the militias as well, and maybe even the more violent element of these militias.

Oh! Lordy be `n Jesus, George!
You girl bout to give de green-light,
she be rumblin' de drums o’ hell,
signal to commence, ain’ dat right?

I know it been a time since I jawed at ya,
but fo' God’s sake you’s havin’ a damn stroke!
Thay’s times t’ rattle ‘n roar, but dis ain’ it.
Ain’ you learn nuttin’ since las’ we spoke?

Der ain’ no way de world gonna sit `roun
while you play Cowboys `n Iranians!
Ya best reel in de Rice-a-Roni train
an' lower dem big ol’ kingdom guns.

Las’ time I checked you's “stayin’ de course”,
but mid-terms plunked a hurt down on ya noggin!
What I’s sayin’ is dat ya best modify ya startegizin’
‘cuz de big ol’ worl’ gonna come o’ knock-knockin’!

I wouldn’ mind so much if it was jus’ you be burnt,
but deys a hell of a lotta folk gonna get broken!
Dey’s me... an' de sleepy folk o’ de land o’ de free,
an' de smilin’ chil'ren o’ de world’s gazin’ grim.

Ya know, you could be de new all American hero.
You could nip it in de bud! Be de new Gandhi!
De innovator... or, de world’s unloved archenemy
stayin’ on de folly-trolley till de wheels come free!

You could be Superman! De one all de kids wanna hug
`n have ya read `em dey little-worded books,
or… you can be de ol’ trepidational kingdom comer
an' puncture dey slim, frail shell wit' sinful hubris…

Remember, George...
De cube-skied dreamer's waitin' on ya.
