1. There could already be a thread on this subject, and if there is, sorry.
2. Please forgive any spelling errors or weird expressions. I'm trying to translate this from a Norwegian text...  Insane  Smile

In an exclusive interview with NBC's David Gregory in the White house, President Bush made some clear warnings for the Islamic religious regime in Iran.

Bush says he will do anything to protect American interests, and when questioned directly if he would be willing to go to war like in Iraq, the president answered like this:

"Hopefully we won't have to. But if it is necessary in order to protect America, and all else fails, and we have to use force to protect our citizens, then I will."

Earlier this week The New Yorker revealed that American commanding soldiers were already inside Iran on recognition missions to find potential military targets. The Pentagon have not admitted to this and claim the New Yorker are making it up. Still, neither the Pentagon or the white house wish to confirm that such an operation has not taken place in Iran.

Even though the white house have tried to calm the rumors of a possible invasion of Iran, George Bush answered the following when asked if he believes a military operation could be a reality:

"I hope we can solve this diplomatically, but I won't leave out any possibilities."

The US claim Iran have the technology to develop nuclear weapons. Iran have denied this several times, claiming their nuclear facilities are for power production only.

This seems terribly familiar. Anyone else get that feeling of Deja vu?

He is not going to do it.
Where should he get the money to start a new war from? They hardly don't have any money fro the Iraq war.

For some reason I feel that he would have a hard time convincing the American People about this. As of now, Iraq War approval has sunk to a new low of 39%.

Won't happen since they neither have the money nor the personnel and materiel required.

But I wonder if this talk is helpful concerning the current negotiations.

I think we cried wolf too early, that if Iran is the real problem; do you think the American public will let that fly: Yes.

I remember the first days of action in Iraq, the tune from the Admin changed abruptly from WMD's to saving the Iraqi people -- Bush appealed to our humanitarian side. If he does it again, I'am sure we'll go to Iran whether for the Iranian people us their neighbors or whomever else. All humans get dumb if you appeal to 'pathos' as opposed to 'logos'.

Make it a human issue; that IS why we fight to defend ourselves, is it not?

Guys this was just a case of irresponsible reporting by the press and legitimizing left wing myths.

And it is irresponsible. I could see somebody like the Iranians going off half cocked and starting something, that the US had no intention of starting.

And how the hell would you know that, L-188? Because you don't have the mental capacity to even question this adminstration about anything? Becuase you're itching for more combat for our troops?

Seems to me it's looking at Bush's woeful record of "diplomacy" and coming to some conclusions that are probably pretty accurate.

You and your freaking left-wing paranoia.

Maybe it will be one of those destroy key targets by stealth bomber missions...
Then if they are making nuclear weapons that'll put them behind for a while. If they decide to build up their nuclear stockpile again we will just level their munitions buildings again... if that fails, we just put more heavy embargos upon them and they will live in the stone age.

The reason why Iraq is going so badly is because of all the media scrutiny. Before an American soldier touches a hair on an Iraqi's head everybody screams "Geneva Convention". And the "Evil" US army is judged again by a world civilian viewing public that has never experienced a war, let alone heard a gunshot firsthand.

We cannot abide by ideals when it comes to war. In modern warfare civilians die, but ideally they are not supposed to. In modern warfare soldiers take matters into their own hands, but ideally there's supposed to be an accountable chain of command. The list goes on and on.

People must face that fact that friend or foe our soldiers cannot tell the difference. Can you imagine a place where anyone around you can pull a gun on you or blow you up and you have no clue who it is? A guy can be telling Coalition soldiers where some insurgents are located just to intentionally lead them into an ambush.

If orders are shoot to kill and take no prisoners, rabble-rousers will think twice about stirring up trouble and our soldiers will be safer. After all it's just a few little chicken sh*ts that trickle in from elsewhere that hold a vast majority of law abiding Iraqis hostage.

Honestly speaking when people go forth and criticize soldiers belligerently it makes me sick. The freedoms that many of us exercise as a birthright floats upon an ocean of blood. Please consider the sacrifices that they have made so that we can sit in front of our computers and argue the validity of war.

Please allow me to cheer at the brilliance of your arguments.
This is without doubt the dawn of a brilliant career as an A.net political and military analyst.

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!  Laugh out loud

Are you REALLY serious? That the JOB of the media-to scrutinize!

The reason Iraq is going so bad has not a thing to do with a media simply reporting the daily bombings. It has to do with a President and his administration who thought they would be out in June of '03, had not freaking clue what they were getting into, and who had even less of a clue as to how to get out.

Talk about letting the person who started this insanity off easy, you just gave Bush a free lifetime pass, seems to me.

What a typically idiotic thing to say, when Bush is the one to blame, not the media.

But thanks for the laugh.

Gosh, why can't we just have an international body that all countries could belong to, and then they all could sit around and talk--you know, share feelings--and sort things out. Kinda like on Star Trek!

Oh sorry, I forgot we had the UN. That has been really useful.

Hey, give the downtrodden hope and maybe they'll rise up in these hell holes and realize that they can control their own destiny. With the help of the US, and be free.

In an interview on an Iranian radio station the Iranian President Mohammad Khatami dismissed the prospect of a US attack over Iran's refusal to give up its nuclear program. He was quoted as saying"We think America is not in a position to take a lunatic action of attacking Iran"

Those sound like fighting words, maybe we'll be hearing GWB say 'Bring 'em on' again.
