In fact Bush and new cons have nothing except this card to deceive and cheat US nation.
Sharon already said we control America and the Americans know it. Bush also promised Sharon that his policy will be Israel first, not America. That is on contrary to JFK foreign policy that US is first not Israel !! That is why he was assassinated by Mousad.

Terror threat remains, Bush says
By Michael A. Fletcher
President George W. Bush issued a stern warning Tuesday about what he called the continuing terrorist threat facing the nation, using the words of Islamic extremists to support his assertion that they remain determined to attack the United States.
Bush repeatedly quoted al-Qaida leader Osama bin Laden and purported terrorist letters, recordings and documents to make his case that terrorists have broad totalitarian ambitions, and that the war in Iraq is a key theater in a wider war on terrorism.
"Iraq is not a distraction in their war against America" but the "central battlefield where this war will be decided," Bush said in an address before the Military Officers Association of America.
Earlier in the day, the White House released its updated plan for combating terrorism. The document describes many successes in the war on terrorism but warns that the nation faces an evolving threat from small terrorist networks and al-Qaida, which is as much an ideology as an actual terrorist network. The document calls the administration's policy of spreading freedom and democracy the best means of countering that threat over the long haul.
"America is safer, but we are not yet safe," the document concludes.
In his speech, Bush said terrorist leaders' own statements have made plain their goals, which he called the present-day equivalent of the aims of Vladimir Lenin and Adolf Hitler.
"Bin Laden and his terrorist allies have made their intentions as clear as Lenin and Hitler before them. The question is: Will we listen? Will we pay attention to what these evil men say?" Bush said. ". . . We're taking the words of the enemy seriously."
Citing the internal communications of terrorists was a dramatic new tactic to advance familiar arguments from Bush in defense of his strategy. The remarks came less than a week before the nation observes the fifth anniversary of the terrorist attacks of Sept. 11, 2001.
The speech was also two months before midterm elections, and Democratic congressional leaders issued sharp criticism of the president's policies.
Several top Democrats charged that U.S. national security has diminished broadly under Bush, for reasons stretching from instability in Iraq to burgeoning nuclear programs in Iran and North Korea.
"The facts do not lie," said Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev. "Under the Bush administration and this Republican Congress, America is less safe, facing greater threats, and unprepared for the dangerous world in which we live.
The Democrats released their report on terrorism in concert with the centrist group Third Way.
Meanwhile, the bipartisan Center for Strategic and International Studies issued a report saying that while Bush's administration has deprived al-Qaida of sanctuary in Afghanistan and prevented any other terrorist attacks on U.S. soil in the past five years, it has failed to track down bin Laden and failed to create "enduring security in Afghanistan." Moreover, the report said, the administration's attempts at public diplomacy are "undermined by perceived U.S. unilateralism."
"What is missing from the . . . public discussion of all of this is some explanation of the phenomenon of radicalized Islam," said Daniel Benjamin, a senior fellow at CSIS and former Clinton administration official. "Why are there so many people out there who want to kill Americans and so many Westerners? Why is this such a durable phenomenon?"
The president's speech was the latest in a series of addresses aimed at buttressing flagging public support for the war. Today, Bush is expected to give another address at the White House, in which he will discuss his administration's latest proposal for trying suspected members of al-Qaida, who are being held at a military prison at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba. In June, the Supreme Court struck down the military commissions Bush established to try suspected members of the terrorist group. On Thursday, he is scheduled to again address the subject of terrorism during a visit to Atlanta.
In their rebuttals, some Democrats renewed calls for Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld to be fired. White House press secretary Tony Snow said Bush flatly rejected those calls. Some Democrats said al-Qaida remains so dangerous because the United States is bogged down in Iraq.
"If President Bush had unleashed the American military to do the job at Tora Bora four years ago and killed Osama bin Laden, he wouldn't have to quote this barbarian's words today," said Sen. John Kerry, D-Mass., the 2004 Democratic nominee. "Because President Bush lost focus on the killers who attacked us and instead launched a disastrous war in Iraq, today Osama bin Laden and his henchmen still find sanctuary in the no-man's land between Afghanistan and Pakistan, where they still plot attacks against America."
