Who said this about who?

The [nation at issue's] people, are good, decent, honorable people. And they've got a government that is belligerent, loud, noisy, threatening -- a government which is in defiance of the rest of the world. And so our objective is to continue to keep the pressure, in hopes that rational folks will show up and say, it's not worth it...
I do not like playing charades, so I'll just let the reader know that the above is a slightly paraphrased quotation by President Bush, regarding Iran, from his interview with C-Span. But I contend that quote could very well be from any other world leader regarding the people and government of the United States of America.

Look in the mirror President Bush. There is the noisy, beligerent, in defiance of world opinion, threatening world leader that ought to concern you. As someone this President pretends to follow for guidance in his life once said (again paraphrasing), remove the log from your own eye before complaining of the mote in your neighbors.

As my neighbor at work said when I brought this story to his attention: "Classic projection".
