War drums

The media are doing Bush's job for him. On the Sunday morning talk shows--I'm making myself watch these clowns--the ongoing discussion is about nukes in Iran and Korea and what the US is going to do about them. I've heard no discussion of initiatives to defuse these situations or to deal with the problems that have caused them to arise. No, the news programs make more money when the production is dramatic, and what's more dramatic than war?
