Bush put the nuclear standoff with Iran in a larger context, saying the violence in Lebanon this summer makes Tehran's designs on the world stage clear. He blamed Iran for supporting the Lebanese militant group Hezbollah, for helping to destabilize Iraq by sponsoring insurgents and supplying components for improvised explosive devices, and for denying basic human rights to millions of its own people.
"The world now faces a grave threat from the radical regime in Iran," the president said. "We know the depth of suffering that Iran's sponsorship of terrorists has brought. And we can imagine how much worse it would be if Iran were allowed to acquire nuclear weapons."
"There must be consequences for Iran's defiance," he said, "and we must not allow Iran to develop a nuclear weapons."

This could very easily escalate to a global thing... And with the amount of allies of the USA dwindling, I think Bush needs to take a step back and seriously reconsider.. And I think that congress, the senate, the U.N. and the AMERICAN PEOPLE, should stop and speak up about this..
So Bush is at it again.. How long is it going to take before some sort of action is taken against this fool and he is shoved out of office, out of the white house with his little Krupps coffee maker in his hands?

Ok.. lets clear up a few things...
1. Vance.. War solves nothing, It instigates violence, terrorism, hatred and global view of your country that is quickly turning sour, You lose allies, when you lose allies you lose imports, exports, jobs and money... with that goes the economy and then everything goes into the crapper..
3. Iran is NO threat to the USA, the reason Bush is pitching such a fit about this is the same reason he pitched a fit when North Korea started with its Nuclear program, He doesnt want any competition, He's a bully, Bullies dont like competition.. Period.. He wants the USA to be the only "Super Power" in the world and the world is evolving and Bush cant always have what he wants, BUT he is willing to bring World War to get it, at the expense of the future generations of this Nation, the lives of thousands of its citizens fighting and at the expense of the economy...
Since the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks, separating serious terrorist plotters from delusional dreamers has proved one of the FBI's most challenging tasks. The effort is complicated by the bureau's frequent use of informants who sometimes play active roles in the plotting.
U.S. law enforcement officials say they do not have the luxury of waiting for a terrorist plot to mature before they break it up. A delay, they say, could mean that a member of the plot they had not discovered might be able to pull off an attack.
Victory solves problems not cease fires.
Iran has been the leading sponsor of terrorism in the world since the frickin Carter administration! No threat to the USA? What about her citizens? Of course they are a threat now. With nuclear capablilty which city will they blow up first is the only question. Koreas Nuclear Program made it's biggest gains during the Clinton Administration with Madeline frickin Albright in charge of that fiasco. Being the World's only Superpower is in America's best interest. The best chance we have of preserving this great nation for our children iswill be in position to defeat our enemies. Duh. Your entire "bully" lecture makes me think you are weak and your policy opinions make me think you want the rest of us to be weak too.

Youre speaking about Martial Law... Who knows if it will come to that.. I think that IF it comes to that than the American people WILL over throw the government.. The two party system is obselete.. And you're right Bush is getting more brazen by the second, he has set himself up to be someone who doesnt have to answer to the law, to congress to the people, well he's wrong... The problem is, is that most Americans dont care.. They're tired of hearing about it...
Iran is being bullied... Quiet openly, and they are just standing their ground, which is their right as an independant nation....
And I wouldnt look at someone's voting record anymore.. If that were the case than republicans would win elections until the end of time... Look at their policies, and belief's.. Do they separate their personal beliefs from their political beliefs..
And personally.. I think Bush is forgetting the Iran and Iraq war that waged for decades.. Why would they be allies when they are pounding each other with artillery.. I dont think so.. this is propaganda... Its running full tilt.... and it's WRONG!
The two party system IS obsolete, how ever, as much as it saddens me our education system is flawed and our people dumb. Most know nothing about politics, nothing about history, they have no idea that the two party system is flawed and continue on with the party loyalties.
