BUSH: “All options are on the table with Iran”

This is the crap that scares me. If the Bush administration is thinking that military action is reasonable in Iran, they are seriously mistaken. Let’s focus on solving the Iraq problem first. Perhaps you disagree. If so, please post your thoughts on why we should go to war (attack) Iran…seeing how this option is “on the table”.

WASHINGTON (Reuters) – U.S. President George W. Bush reiterated on Tuesday that all options were on the table in dealing with Iran’s nuclear challenge.

At the start of a meeting with Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert, Bush was asked if military action remained an option for dealing with Iran.

“My position has not changed. All options are on the table. I would hope that we could solve this diplomatically,” he replied.

Bush said it was important that Iran faced “consequences” such as sanctions and other economic measures for defying the international community over its nuclear program. “There’s a price to be paid,” Bush said.

The United States accuses Iran of seeking to build atomic bombs, a charge Tehran denies.

  1. This is precisely why we need to put RON PAUL in office! He is the only hope for America people! See RonPaul2008.com, see the youtube videos, make him your myspace friend, volunteer, donate money, do whatever you can to take America back to the Constitution.

  2. Bush said the same thing back in April of 2006. I made a humorous prediction of our invasion of Iran based on his “all options are on the table” statement concerning both Iraq and Iran. (click my name to see that prediction)

    Also, support Ron Paul. I do.

  3. The thing is, Iraq and Iran are linked. Iraq was a the first step in what is the larger problem, which is Iran. Many of the fighters that we face in Iraq are either crossing over from Iran, getting weapons from them, or being funded by them.

    that being said, I don’t know what the proper course of action would be. First thing I would say is let the soldiers do the fighting instead of the politicians. Many people talk about leaving Iraq, but that would just leave Iran and the various terror organizations to go in there, slaughter those who were on our side, and take control.

    I don’t know if Ron Paul is the answer, I don’t believe any politician is…

  4. Iran is a big problem, but why do we have to be the only ones to deal with them? Let’s get someone else to grow a pair and take initiative in the world community. The problem is, we have set the precedent of “Word Police” (for lack of a better term), and so it almost becomes an expectation.

  5. because to put it bluntly, no one else will.

  6. i thing if there were hope to any military success to solve the iran nuclea issue,bush could not keep saying that all option are on the table.such a speech proves his weekness.he could use it without hesitating.this is what seems to be a face saving word.he knows very well that concequences are very huge on both side.it will be a very catastrofic situation.iran will be extremly proud to defend its people and it has the necessary power to do so.i think no one can think about military option.these are propaganda so to make iranians scared in order to pressure Ahmadenejad abandon its wright.doing so is hopless and bush knows it very well but prefere this than doing nothing as military option won’t work.there is two options remaining for bush and i think he is looking for them:

    to create a situation which will allow him to concile with tehran by keeping his uper hand.

    or keeping these kinds of pressure untill the near end of his office term to lunch a suprise attack and leave the concequances to the coming new president.

  7. An Iran with Nuclear weapons is a prospect, more frightening then war itself…
