How's that Axis of Evil working for ya W?

Remember the “Axis of Evil” rhetoric that Bush spewed in a State of the Union address a few years ago… there were three nations that the U.S. needed to monitor as they were breeding terrorists and such.

Do you remember what those three countries were?

Iraq. Iran. North Korea.

One of these countries is in civil war…

One is developing nuclear technology…

And one just exploded a nuclear weapon earlier this week (assuming they're not lying in order to test world reaction)

Now comes an article, an analysis is probably a more apt description, in today’s Washington Post that speaks of how Bush's axis of evil "is coming back to haunt him" (and maybe haunt the gop and put more harm on them next month…)

Specifically, it speaks to how U.S. relationships have deteriorated with each of the countries that are part of the axis.

Here’s a handy-dandy excerpt:

Nearly five years after President Bush introduced the concept of an "axis of evil" comprising Iraq, Iran and North Korea, the administration has reached a crisis point with each nation: North Korea has claimed it conducted its first nuclear test, Iran refuses to halt its uranium-enrichment program, and Iraq appears to be tipping into a civil war. . .


Despite Bush's idiotic, and way off the mark, rhetoric that Liberals are weak on terrorism, let’s face facts: it’s Bush and his cronies (read: party) that’s been weakening our diplomatic relations around the globe and, ultimately, turned a blind eye towards North Korea and Iran.

(You remember Iran right – the country that continues its uranium enrichment program, thumbing its collective noses at empty threats from the U.S. and, to a lesser extent, the rest of the world.)
With all his attention (and I use that term very loosely) on Iraq, he’s allowed the other two countries in the “Axis” to build themselves up and become more dominant.

How will this scenario end you ask…

I wish I knew...

Funny but of those three countries on the axis of evil, Iraq hasn't done anything as far as nuclear bombs, weapons of mass destruction, ect. Bush was wrong for going into Iraq?? I don't think so. As for Iran and North Korea it is just a matter of time.
