LA Times, August 16, 2008: President Bush delivered yet one more tough warning to Russia today over the crisis in Georgia: “Bullying and intimidation are not acceptable ways to conduct foreign policy in the 21st century.”

“The United States has long maintained the option of preemptive actions to counter a sufficient threat to our national security. The greater the threat, the greater is the risk of inaction— and the more compelling the case for taking anticipatory action to defend ourselves, even if uncertainty remains as to the time and place of the enemy’s attack. To forestall or prevent such hostile acts by our adversaries, the United States will, if necessary, act preemptively.” – President Bush, June 1, 2002

Again, 2002, still in the 21st century. Pot, kettle. Kettle, pot.
