Iran's a "Destabilizing Influence"?

Geez, talk about the pot calling the kettle black.

President Bush says the following about Iran:

The US president said Tehran was "not a force for good" and vowed that the US would continue efforts to isolate it.

"I believe it is in the interests of all of us that we have an Iran that tries to stabilise not destabilise, an Iran that gives up its weapons ambitions and therefore we are working to that end," he said.

So, Iran is a "destabilizing influence"?? What the hell does that make George Bush's America? It's not like you can say that either Afghanistan or Iraq is exactly "stable" yet. And one can hardly say that the United States has been diligent in their efforts to capture Bin Laden:

Mr. Bush has said before that he would order the U.S. to act inside the Muslim-majority country if there were firm intelligence on the whereabouts of Osama bin Laden or other terrorist leaders.

Mr. bin Laden, the mastermind of the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks, is believed to be living in the tribal border region of Pakistan. His ability to avoid capture remains a political sore spot for Mr. Bush.

It is truly disappointing to see Bush continuing to set the stage to "justify" invading Iran, when he hasn't cleaned up the mess he made in two other nations.
