President “Bush publicly rattled his saber, using his State of the Union Address on January 29, 2002, to warn of an ‘axis of evil’ made up of Iraq, Iran and North Korea. Each of the three, Bush said, was ‘arming to threaten the peace of our world’ with weapons of mass destruction and sponsorship of terrorists. ‘I will not wait on events, while dangers gather,’ he said. ‘I will not stand by, as peril draws closer and closer.’ ”
