Bush's brand of diplomacy

If only... Perhaps if we had John Wayne for president (or Fred Thompson).

In the interview, Bush offered his case for why Russia should not worry about a U.S. missile shield in Europe.

"Russia has got an inventory that could overpower any missile defense system," he said, "if they could shuck off their ballet tights long enough to push the launch button."

"The practicality is that this is aimed at a country like Iran," Bush explained, "since if they ended up with a nuclear weapon they might actually have the cojones to use it."

Told that Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad had said it was too late to stop Iran's nuclear program, Bush responded: "Well, the guy's got stones, but not a lot of smarts. Paper beats rock, and a nuclear weapon beats a nuclear program. Guess Einsteinejad can't do the math."
From IMAO.
