Bush invokes "nuclear holocaust"

His "legacy" in shatters and his current pointless war continuing to be pointless, Bush seems to think he can make another gamble to save it using other peoples' lives. The Worst President Ever is again beating the war drum on Iran, only this time he is making his fear mongering about nuclear annihilation more explicit, warning that:
"Iran's active pursuit of technology that could lead to nuclear weapons threatens to put a region already known for instability and violence under the shadow of a nuclear holocaust. Iran's actions threaten the security of nations everywhere. And that is why the United States is rallying friends and allies around the world to isolate the regime, to impose economic sanctions. We will confront this danger before it is too late."
We'll never know if Iran really has nuclear weapons if we don't invade, right?

Update: Expanded quote for clarity. Also see Glenn Greenwald's take on this.
