    Wink Bush says he wants Iranians to have more 'Freedomę'

    Oh god, you know when he starts going on about 'Freedomę' and 'Liberty«', that means plans are afoot to deliver them whether the people want it or not..

    WASHINGTON (Reuters) - President Bush will offer words of support on Tuesday in his State of the Union address to Iranians who want greater freedom as U.S. diplomats push for sanctions over the Islamic republic's nuclear program.

    In his annual speech, Bush will include a discussion of global hot spots and his drive for democracy worldwide, along with domestic priorities like improving the U.S. health-care system and promoting ways to wean Americans from foreign oil.

    Bush is walking a tightrope with his Iran policy, denouncing Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad for refusing to halt a nuclear program the West suspects is aimed at developing an atomic weapon, while encouraging freedom in Iran and trying not to alienate the Iranian people.

    "We want the people of Iran to be able to live in a free society," Bush said during a Cabinet meeting on Monday to discuss his annual State of the Union speech. "So tomorrow night I am going to talk about this issue and make clear the policy of the United States."

    The speech, to be delivered to a joint session of the Congress and millions of Americans watching on television, was already drawing fire from Democrats, who said a new direction was needed after a year of controversy involving Iraq, Hurricane Katrina, a domestic spying program and other issues.

    "Empty promises will no longer cut it," said Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid, a Nevada Democrat. "We need a credible road map for our future, and we need the president to tell us how together, we can move forward toward the better America that we all envision."

    Washington sees Iran's government as a major international irritant. Besides the nuclear issue, U.S. officials describe Iran as the world's most active state sponsor of terrorism, by providing support to organizations like Hamas and Palestine Islamic Jihad and attempting to influence Iraq.

    U.S. officials believe many young Iranians desire an improved relationship with the United States and are frustrated in their efforts toward reform by hard-line defenders of clerical rule in Tehran.

    "We believe they are great people and they want greater freedoms and the president has said multiple times that we stand behind them in their quest for freedom. He's not saying, 'rise up and overthrow,' but that we stand behind them in their quest for greater freedom," said an administration official.

    In a CBS News interview, Bush said it was important to speak both to the Iranian government and the people.

    "We would like you to be able to express yourselves in the open ... without fear of reprisal. We want you to be able to vote and elect," he said was his message to Iranians

    "We would like you to be able to express yourselves in the open ...
    without fear of reprisal, except possibly from Uncle Sam.
    We want you to be able to vote and elect," he said was his
    message to Iranians...
    "...but if you vote to defy us, I'll turn you into a glass parking lot...
    so, good night and God bless."

    Well, if I were an Iranian, I'd start stockpiling dry goods and make sure the country place up in the mountains is winterized. Good luck, Persians of the world.
