More Sabre Rattling Over Iran

Dubya is continuing to raise the stakes in his latest attempt to convince us that we're long overdue to invade Iran.
JERUSALEM (CNN) -- The war of words between United States and Tehran continued Wednesday, with President Bush repeating his assertion that Iran is "a threat to world peace."

President Bush and Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert at the airport in Tel Aviv on Wednesday.

The two countries have been trading accusations since a weekend confrontation involving Iranian boats and U.S. Navy warships in the Strait of Hormuz. The United States claims Iranian vessels deliberately sped toward its warships despite warnings to stay away.

Bush's criticism of Iran came Wednesday during a news conference with Israeli PrimeMinister Ehud Olmert in Jerusalem. Bush is in the region to encourage the peace process between Israel and the Palestinians.

Bush called the incident "a very dangerous gesture" by Iran and warned the Islamic republic against any escalation.

"We have made it very clear, and they know our position, and that is: There will be serious consequences if they attack our ships, pure and simple."
Because the U.S. Navy needs to be worried about Iranian speedboats. Wake up people, THEY COULD HAVE JET-SKIS!!
