To people of Iran

Part of President Bush's speech during his ongoing mideast trip:
    "To the people of Iran: You are rich in culture and talent. You have a right to live under a government that listens to your wishes, respects your talents, and allows you to build better lives for your families. Unfortunately, your government denies you these opportunities, and threatens the peace and stability of your neighbors. So we call on the regime in Tehran to heed your will, and to make itself accountable to you. The day will come when the people of Iran have a government that embraces liberty and justice, and Iran joins the community of free nations. And when that good day comes, you will have no better friend than the United States of America."
Action please!

Notice, though, what the President didn't say. He didn't say he would take any concrete action to compel the regime to change in any way at all. Instead, he "calls on" the thugs in Tehran to change their ways.

Do you know what this reminds me of? Bush 41's empty promises to the Iraqi resistance after the Kuwait war. "Oh did I say support? I meant *moral* support!"
