Condoleeza Rice, facing her confirmation hearing for Secretary of State, insists that now is the time for diplomacy. Now?!? Meanwhile, her unruly boss can't seem to stay with the message of the day.

Bush said Monday that Washington would not rule out military action against Iran, which he labeled in 2002 an "axis of evil" member alongside Iraq and North Korea, if it was not more forthcoming about its suspected nuclear weapons program.

ahem...military action? With what military? Oh, and Iran is soooooooo scared!

"Iran has no fear of foreign enemies' threats...as they are very well aware that the Islamic Republic is not a place for adventurism," the ISNA student news agency quoted influential former President Akbar Hashemi Rafsanjani as saying.

Second verse, same as the first.
