Don’t throw Stones if you live in a Glass House

Two news articles by foreign wires caught my attention. The first article comes from the Associated Press in Iran where President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad railed against the U.S. for duplicity and hypocrisy.

In threatening to refer Iran to the U.N. for sanctions, the story reports Ahmadinejad fired back and called for Pres. Bush to be tried for war crimes.

Reminding the world that America was the one who used weapons of mass destruction “against innocent people,” possibly a reference to chemical weapons used against Fallujah insurgents in 2004, the Iranian president is resisting international pressure to dismantle Iranian nuclear programs.
"Who in the world are you to accuse Iran of suspicious nuclear armed activity?" Ahmadinejad said during a nationally televised ceremony marking the 36th anniversary of the establishment of Iran's volunteer paramilitary force.
Iran has steadfastly insisted their nuclear programs are for domestic energy needs; and the Iranian president in his speech sharply reminded his countrymen that it is the U.S. who has nuclear weapons as well as chemical weapons, to no consternation or interference from Western nations.

They say Iran has to stop its peaceful nuclear activity since there is a probability of diversion while we are sure that they are developing and testing (nuclear weapons) every day," Ahmadinejad said. "They speak as if they are the lords of the world."
Indeed, just do as we say and not as we do.

In another story, British news reports that an Iraqi leader has noted abuse is now ”worse than under Saddam.”

The Guardian Unlimited quotes Ayad Allawi, the country’s initial prime minister as saying that the Ministry of Interior is out of control, with “secret police [and] secret bunkers where people are being interrogated."
The Ministry of the Interior is at the heart of the matter,” he told the Guardian. “I am not blaming the minister [Bayan Jabr] himself, but the rank and file are behind the secret dungeons and some of the executions that are taking place.”
Oh Lord, forgive us for we did not know what we were doing when invaded Iraq.
