Lying Our Way Through The Middle East

US Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice has warned that Iran poses the biggest threat to US Middle East interests, as she begins a major regional tour.

Ms Rice and US Defence Secretary Robert Gates are meeting Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak and Arab ministers at the Red Sea resort of Sharm el-Sheikh.

This is so wrong on so many levels. Condi Rice is meeting with a group of Sunni leaders with unclean hands to bash their rival. Saudi Arabia is busy arming the insurgency in Iraq, supplying the suicide bombers, and helping create chaos in the region.

The Iranians are the problem though. Condi Rice is a horrible Secretary of State, and a horrible human being. Why can't she and Dick just say they feel like bombing Iran no matter who is the worst actor in the region and be honest for a change.
