Speaking at an emergency press conference called 37 minutes ago in the White House, President Bush announced that air, sea and land elements of a massive US invasion force are being assembled in the Persian Gulf and on Iran's western borders.
Citing Monday's national intelligence estimate that established "beyond the shadow of a doubt" that since 2003 Iran has developed a massive arsenal of non-existent nuclear weapons, Bush said he had no option but declare immediate pre-emptive war on the obstinate regime in Tehran.
"The complete absence of evidence that Iran has hostile intentions towards the west is the most conclusive evidence we have yet seen that Iran has hostile intentions towards the west." said the President, adding that the report's lack of any indication that Iranians are working on long-range delivery systems for their non-existent nukes can only mean that they are.
Get along down to Comment is Free and read the rest of Tony Hendra's brilliant piece lampooning the neocon reaction to this week's news that Iran is not developing nuclear weapons. If there's a funnier piece that has ever been posted on the Guardian's website, I haven't seen it.
