What George W. Bush says about Iran may be true, unfortunately he lacks the credibility that would allow us to take him at hisÂ word.Â HeÂ speaks of seeingÂ yetÂ another shadow of nuclear holocaust over the middle east.
Voices claiming to be privy to conversations at the very center of power. Would have us believe the President is advised to use militarily action.Â But HeÂ refrains to allow timeÂ forÂ his policy of isolation and sanction to disperseÂ the growing menace.
The President in my opinionÂ would be better advised to make sure he can provide verifiable proofÂ before he attacks another country.
BecauseÂ the neoconservative crowdÂ considers diplomacy little more then appeasement thatÂ emboldens ones enemy. The PresidentÂ leaves himself with the option to attack or bark loudly as he backs off.
That senior administration sourcesÂ relate the President is advised to use militarily action,Â A signal perhaps thatÂ but for credibility he would have already done so.
The President of IranÂ seems to meÂ a bit of aÂ religious fanatic, He may even be so detached from reality and his own humanity that given the opportunity he might gleefully initiate a world wide holocaust.
If we have evidence to that effect we ought not to hesitate to use a smashing first strike once a new President is elected.
But I think the President is crying wolf atÂ the intentions of Iran toward the west.Â
I have little doubt they would like to become a nation with nuclear weapons capabilityÂ and the dominant regional power.
At this pointÂ we can with diplomacy stillÂ talk them out of the wantÂ to acquire theÂ match that burns the whole world.
The cost will be accepting them asÂ the singleÂ dominant nation in the region which is exactly what they wanted in the first place.
Had we elected a President who understood state craft, We might have been able to limit them to being one regional powerÂ amongst several.
