Why does President Bush hate Iran?

Iran and America are similar. Lets compare a few facts, shall we:

Iran:

  • Has not invaded any country recently.
  • Has not caused the death of 100,000 of that country’s citizens.
  • Interferes in other country’s internal disputes.
  • Has sponsored terrorists (Hamas).
  • Tortures and kills prisoners.
  • Has rigged most of its elections since its last revolution.
  • Is controlled by religious fundamentalists.
  • Created by popular revolution.

The USA:

  • Has invaded a number of countries recently.
  • Has killed 100,000 of that country's citizens.
  • Interferes in other country’s internal disputes.
  • Has sponsored terrorists (the IRA, Irgun Tsvai–Leumi).
  • Tortures prisoners, kills prisoners.
  • Has rigged many of its elections since its last revolution.
  • Is controlled by religious fundamentalists.
  • Founded by a terrorist (George Washington).

So the key difference is the USA kills lots of foreigners, whereas the Iranians kill a few of their own. Apart from that, these countries’ attributes are pretty much identical. Is that why they hate each other so much?
