Bush Insists Iran Remains a Threat Despite Arms Data

New York Times

WASHINGTON, Dec. 4 — President Bush warned on Tuesday that Iran remained a threat despite an intelligence assessment that it had halted a covert program to develop nuclear weapons four years ago, as the administration struggled to save a diplomatic process now in disarray.


Well, of course, if you're someone like Bush who seems to be afraid of his own shadow -- and that's the
Jungian Shadow *I mean:

"He said Iran could not be entrusted with acquiring even the scientific knowledge to enrich uranium for peaceful civilian use, explicitly declaring for the first time what has been an underlying premise of the administration’s policy."


In other words, picture an adolescent punk running through the schoolyard shouting: "I know something you don't know." And when he finds out EVERYONE knows that, he flips out.


And I can't help but hear Mick Jagger singing:

"Can't you see your mother, baby, standing in the shadows..."


*Jungian Shadows

"Unfortunately, there can be no doubt that man is, on the whole, less good than he imagines himself or wants to be. Everyone carries a shadow, and the less it is embodied in the individual's conscious life, the blacker and denser it is..."

"Good does not become better by being exaggerated, but worse, and a small evil becomes a big one through being disregarded and repressed. The shadow is very much a part of human nature, and it is only at night that no shadows exist."
