US President George W Bush refused to rule out the use of force against Iran over the Islamic republic's resumption of nuclear activities, in an interview with Israeli television.

When asked if the use of force was an alternative to faltering diplomatic efforts, Bush said: "All options are on the table."
"The use of force is the last option for any president. You know we have used force in the recent past to secure our country," he said in a clear reference to Iraq.

"I have been willing to do so as a last resort in order to secure the country and provide the opportunity for people to live in free societies," he added.

Bush was speaking from his ranch in Crawford, Texas to a reporter from Israeli public television. The Jewish state has accused Iran of seeking to acquire nuclear weapons and believes it is the prime target of the alleged arms program.

" the opportunity for people to live in free societies," he added.

I'm sure the good people of London may beg to differ.

Yes, it is a bit spookie... But do they have the resources to attack a third coutry... It really sounds like Bush loves to fight...

The military option may have been brought up a bit too soon.
The US needs to let the EU and UN handle this Iranian situation.
Let the EU move for sanctions within the UN boundries if all else fails.
If that does not work, then let the EU and UN determine if the military option should be utilized.
The US needs to stay backseat to this, letting the EU and UN lead the way.

The U.S. (I'm a US citizen) needs to stop starting wars in order to fix every freakin' problem. It's like trying to fight fire with lighter fluid, it's just igniting more and more hate of the United States. Sometimes it's necessary, but war should be used with caution.

Even if Iran attacks Israel or does whatever BushCo *thinks* they might do, I say don't get involved. Let 'em hash it out themselves. Why should we have to pitch in?

Yeah, I'm an isolationist.

Yeah, them republicans sound hawkish , but here's the reality of their commitment:

President Bush hid out in the guard and arguably did not even bother showing up for duty.
Cheney had 5 deferments.
Ashcroft had 7 deferments.
Rove did not serve.
Hastert? Frist? Did not serve.
DeLay Did not serve. In fact, in one of the silliest assertions ever, Delay actually said: "So many minority youths had volunteered that there was literally no room for patriotic folks like myself."

So let's call Republicans chicken-hawks.

I suggest that we start cleaning out some land in the backyard to star planting our own vegetables and start raising our own meat.

Because if Bush decides to invade Iran we will be living on pennies.

Can somebody take away Bush Check book.!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Also can somebody tell Bush that he is not Alexander the Great and neither one of the Christian Crusaders.

Occurs he is not the one to face the enemy he just sit in the White house and plays commander in Chief with the lives of American troops.

The key word here is "rethink". Bush is all about vague notions and twinges which he turns over to Cheney who turns them into corrupt grabs for cash and power.
