Bush on Unacceptable War

Did you notice the subtle distinction in George Bush's comments regarding the Russo-Georgian War?
Russia has invaded a sovereign neighboring state...Such an action is unacceptable in the 21st century. ~ Bush, August 11, 2008
Invading a neighboring state is bad. Invading sovereign states which are not neighboring (such as, say, the United States invading Iraq) is perfectly acceptable. I don't often praise Bush's elocution but this construction is elegant in its psychopathy.
