To appease the Israelis (money) and to cozy up more to the Arabs and Sunnis (they have more money than the Iranians and aren't as close to Russia and China), Bush blustered toward Iran on Bush's Arab trip. This comes after the IAEA has said Iran is cooperating, the NIE on Ian says that Iran is not working on a nuclear weapons program, and the top U.S. general in Iraq had his spokesman issue a statement that Iran is not arming Iraqi insurgents. Also, the U.S. Navy has admitted that it exaggerated the Iranian speedboat "incident," the U.S. has never interdicted any Iranian shipment of weapons or materiel to Iraq, and Iran is going all about thawing relations with Arabs and others.
