Discussion in 'Iran' started by Gunny, Dec 4, 2007.
Well, then there's always this "minor little detail" ....
He should have said, 'may have restarted it....'
Doesnt this warrant a preemptive strike anyway? Shucks, we supposedly know that Iran wants Nukes and will eventually find a way to make a Nuke just like Saddam had WMD or was going to get WMD. Lets just blow them away before they hit us. Lets get it over with.
or it could mean he's sabre rattling again.
Bit of a credibilty problem for him.
It's a wonder his head didn't snap completely off from whiplash!
And if Iran has "restarted its 'nucular' program," who's going to believe it?
I think this has to do it for credibility and accountability and 'intelligence?'.
(I'm new here; my first post; be nice; I do play well with others...most of the time.)
Only with you lefties.
Those aren't Bush's words ... they're the NIE's and IAEA's. Obviously, if Iran halted a nuclear weapons program, then they had to have one, right?
Now is this halted as in for good? Or kinda like N Korea halted theirs?
Iran, by its own words is hostile to the US. Anyone who discounts them as a potential threat needs to have some political rhetoric vacummed out of their heads and some common sense pumped in.
I've never claimed that iran wasn't a potential threat.
The debate, to me, has been about the nature of the threat. Bush voters assured me that they somehow knew in their gut, that iran was building a nuclear bomb, was close to having one, and the threat was becoming imminent.
I said I saw no evidence for a nuclear weapons program, I saw no evidence of a grave or immediate threat, and I was fine with continuing to use diplomacy and inspections.
I turned out to be right on all counts.
Considering that Bush knew of this information weeks ago when attempting to convince the world to put sanctions on Iran, and didn't disclose this information, yeah it pretty much shreds what little is left of Bush's credibility.
You know very well that on these issues I'm not a "lefty", so dismissing my opinion out of hand isn't really approrpriate.
Anyone listening to him twist and moan and backtrack on this issue has to ask why the same verbiage as before Iraq...when we know they were distorting the truth then, too.
Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice... won't get fooled again. Isn't that what baby bush said?
And, Larkinn, it makes one wonder about the MidEast conflab at Annapolis. He knew; we know he knew. And he had to have used the 'threat' of Iran at the conference against some of those countries.
GunnyL, those aren't Bush's words?
He's repeating them so hard and so fast his head is liable to spin right off his skinny neck!
