They are out there beating the drums:
LONDON (Reuters) - The United States or other countries will one day be forced to consider pre-emptive action if Iran and North Korea continue to seek nuclear weapons, a senior U.S. government official said on Tuesday.First of all, other countries in the region have nuclear weapons. Israel has over 200! Many of the Union formerly known as Soviet states gave up their nuclear weapons, supposedly in exchange for peace. Are we sure?
If North Korea refused to renounce its nuclear program and Iran developed a nuclear weapons capability, it would lead other countries in their regions to seek nuclear weapons, said the U.S. official, speaking on condition he was not identified.
"We, the United States, and others who might be threatened by these developments will have to look at how to respond and inevitably I think people will have to look at the question of pre-emption," the official told reporters. (emphasis added)
Secondly, a pre-emptive invasion will be with nuclear weapons. Does anybody want that? (except the children in the Pentagon with their toys.)
The President of the United States won't talk to Iran and Syria. Both are obviously thinking of going nuclear. Who wouldn't, with the example of Iraq in ruins on their doorstep.
Bush is convening his own Iraq Study group. What? I think that the man is certifiable. Even his own father can't control him.
What I worry about the most, though, is religion. While Bush was riding high, when he could do anything he wanted, he allowed that what he was doing was the work of the Lord, with whom he had personal communication. What now??? Has God abandoned him? How will he justify his actions now that things aren't going the way God wanted them to?
