They hate us, they really hate us

Here's the whole Little Green Footballs story, because it's too good to truncate:

World media don’t even bother to hide their astounding bias any more. Today’s example: Bush defends Iraq war, says he will attack another nation if necessary.
WASHINGTON (AFP) - One day before Iraq’s historic parliamentary elections, US President George W. Bush defiantly defended his case for war and said he would preemptively attack another country if he deemed it necessary.
Here’s the full speech: President Discusses Iraqi Elections, Victory in the War on Terror. The only statement that even comes close to AFP’s outrageously false summary is this:
In an age of terrorism and weapons of mass destruction, if we wait for threats to fully materialize, we will have waited too long.
And that’s a statement Bush has made many times since September 11. He did not say he would “preemptively attack another country if he deemed it necessary.” AFP’s version is simply a lie, twisted to play to the “Bush as reckless cowboy” crowd. And that’s why it’s our Distorted Headline of the Day.
