Crazy Like A Fox?

Of course there's always the possibility that Bush and Cheney know it would be madness to attack Iran, and are just talking up the price of oil:
Bush said Iran had indicated it is developing missiles with a 1,900 km range, able to strike US allies in Europe.

He said US intelligence had concluded that with continued foreign assistance, Iran could have an intercontinental ballistic missile capable of reaching the United States and all of Europe before 2015.

"We need to take it seriously now," Bush said.

"Today we have no way to defend Europe against the emerging Iranian threat. And so we must deploy a missile defence system there that can."
Yeah, and of course it is Bush's friends in the military-industrial complex who cash in on building the missile defence system, whether it works or not.
