Bush Uses the Word "Iraq" Only 16 Times in the State of the Union

In this year's State of the Union address, President Bush used the word "Iraq" only 16 times in his speech. This compared with 27 times last year. He also used the word "Terrorism" only 20 times, as apposed to 27 times last year. Which words were on the rise? The word "World" was used 26 times as opposed to 15 last year and "Iran" was used 6 times as opposed to 3 last year and 1 in 2004.

So what does this mean? It means that we are shifting to the focus from Iraq to Iran, and looking at global issues more carefully. Why is this important? I don't know, you tell me.'


See you soon.
