Wait... the first sentence of the article says, and I quote, "The White House on Tuesday flatly denied an Army Radio report that claimed US President
George W. Bush intends to attack Iran before the end of his term." In fact, the article's title from the Jerusalem Post is, in fact, "White
House denies Iran attack report" Why did you take creative license with the title of the article? It was a worthy breaking news item using the
original title, but now you've turned it into an op-ed piece by yourself via attempting to taint the reader's view before (s)he even clicks on the
article link. Sheesh!
Furthermore, how in the blue hell do sanctions, financial, and political pressures equal an attack on Iran? If that's the case then the UN is the
most warmongering entity on planet Earth because all those fools do is apply sanction and rebuke after sanction and rebuke. As for the "nothing is
off the table" quote, would you prefer we start a great experiment to see how well our international relations against our enemies go if we preface
our interactions with "but don't worry, we have no intention of utilizing any military force against you, regardless of your response to our
requests and demands?" Here's a hint for you, it wouldn't go well. My God, does anybody ever actually stop and use their brain before they
criticize every single thing George Walker Bush says and does? Yeah, he's screwed some stuff up... just like every president before him did and just
like every one that will follow will. Him taking an openly hardline against Iran and not simply saying "Oh well, I'll just step away from this and
let the next guy deal with it" isn't amongst the stuff he's screwed up.
