How sad - reduced to this

The United States of America - the richest and most powerful nation in human history has been reduced to a grade school-yard nyah nyah and bullying session with Iran.

Here are the headlines:

Listen up, Bush tells Maliki: Iran is a danger to the Middle East
In a warning to the Iraqi Prime Minister, Nouri al-Maliki, President George Bush said Iran was a danger to the Middle East, and that if Mr Maliki did not share that view, Mr Bush would have a "heart to heart" talk with him.

Iran Warns Iraqi Leader U.S. Exit Is Key to Peace
TEHRAN -- Iranian officials told Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki on Thursday that only a U.S. pullout would bring peace to his country and asserted that Tehran was doing its best to help stabilize its neighbor.

Thinking world citizens should begin serious reflection on a leadership concept for human affairs that diminishes the status of politically elected leaders of nation states . The infantilism with which we are represented cannot persist. The gap in consciousness between citizens and virtually all who seek and gain elected office is growing simply too great to perdure.
