    I would what Bush meant by "timeline" was either deadline or timetable, because giving a "timeline" to a dictator doesn't really make any sense. You can't GIVE a chronology to a person. Unless he mean he doesn't think you should speculate as to when the dictator is going to die.

    Hmmm... anyone remember the LAST time time we gave a dictator a timeline and told him when we were going to do something?

    But I guess you have to be more *sensitive* and you have a lot more to lose when a dictator actually HAS nuclear capabilities. But now he just looks like such a flaming hyprocrite. Bring 'em on! Let's try democracy... Shock and awe! We shouldn't give him a timeline...

    Kind of like an overzealous Yale frat boy amped about beating Harvard and then going mute when the Michigan front five walk by. :whip3:

    I fail to see the hypocracy. America in general gave Saddam 12 years to comply with UN Sanctions to disarm or prove that you have disarmed. He never did. Bush finally gave an ultimatum to show proof of disarmament or be invaded. Saddam called the bluff but unfortunate for him and very fortunate for the Iraqi people, Bush wasnt bluffing.

    Now we begin the process a new with Iran and NK. We've been talking to them. We will go through the diplomatic process with a dictator despite the fact that we all know where we will end up with a dicatator, invasion. Dictators live by their own set of rules. UN sanctions might as well be toilet paper with writing on it to them.

    I'll bet that part warms up your loin's doesn't it... :gay:


    So you tell me... hell, tell us ALL, who is it, anywhere in history, that has had the capability to 100% ACCURATELY predict a war, it's outcome, and what will follow?

    NO ONE!! So whatever point you and your liberal media are so painfully trying to make isn't worth horse piss.

    So wait for your next liberal marching orders. This issue is dead.

    Bush, Perle, Wolfowitz, Cheney, etc. has nothing to do with the process of disarmament in Iraq. The successful process I might add. Cheney and Wolfowitz were authoring Pentagon papers about invading Iraq in 1993. Immediately after 9/11 Bush said, "Iraq, Saddam, find the connection!" The Bush administration came into power and immediately after 9/11 set a TIMETABLE (timeline, as our semantically-challenged president called it), completely independant of diplomatic efforts, for the Iraqi government to discover and destroy their non-existant anthrax, serin, VX, etc. The hypocrisy lies in the fact that they gave a TIMETABLE and an ultimatum to one dictator, and now he's saying you shouldn't give one to ANOTHER, nuclear-powered dictator. Its black and white!

    No, I'm saying he's being a hyprocite for being a LAMB in the face of a dictator who ACTUALLY has nuclear capabilities. "Bring it on!!" when attacking the Iraqi regime that did NOT have WMD (makes you wonder why they felt secure being so gung-ho)...and "Wait! Diplomacy!" when dealing with another BRUTAL dictator with WMD.
