"How did it come to pass that an opposition's measure of a president's foreign policy was all or nothing, success or "failure"? The answer is that the political absolutism now normal in Washington arrived at the moment--Nov. 7, 2000--that our politics subordinated even a war against terror to seizing the office of the presidency." - Daniel Henninger - WSJ 11/18/05

Bush: Iran must stop uranium enrichment

According to CNN.com:

Bush's comments come three days after Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said the Western incentives' plan designed to persuade Iran to suspend uranium enrichment was a "step forward" and that his country would "carefully consider" it.
Unfortunately any positive hopes for this reaction from Ahmadinejad will likely be dashed, as these positive statements were made from China. China, one of Iran's security council buddies, would likely not look kindly upon Mahmoud coming off too cockily while visiting. That and the Iranian president doesn't have the last word on nukes - only the biggest mouth.

CNN wouldn't want to cross a line here and perhaps point out the following is true, would they?:
The U.S. president accused Iran's leaders of sponsoring terrorism and denying liberty and human rights to its people and threatening the existence of Israel.
