Nuclear Iran: Cheney's Empty Threats

War with Iran has been averted. Thank God.

Now the Iranians are acting up with their usual attitude since they know we aren't really going to attack them. How do we know this? A quote from Scotland on Sunday:

"Responding to Cheney's comments, Foreign Minister Manouchehr Mottaki said the US was not in a position to take military action against it and urged Washington and its allies to engage in dialogue.

"We do not see America in a position to impose another crisis on its tax payers by starting another war in the region," Mottaki said."

So when Vice President Cheney tells the world that "all options are on the table" he really isn't telling the truth. The U.S. doesn't have the option of military action in Iran.

A New Yorker article claims that the U.S. is increasing covert operations into Iran in a way that could spark a war. That is possible. It would be a way of getting us into a war with Iran while the Administration blames Iran for the whole thing. It would be typical of them.

so what do you say?
should iran have nukes?or not...

Iran will not have Nukes and it won't be the US that will prevent it. Israel will somehow manage to stop them without engaging in war..

If Iran gets nukes it will be the final nail in the Bush legacy. He will be known as the worst world leader ever. And by "ever" I mean going back as far as human memory goes.

Had the USA not jumped into Iraq so fast we would have the power and resolve to invade Iran.

Iran should not have nukes, and I doubt they seriously want them if they consider the cost it will be to them.

I think thats a little hippocrisy here...meaning"I can have it U cant have it"
Let it be.They are not so stupid to launcs a nuklear strike knowing that in the next moment their country would be gone!
And my opinion is that shall russia and china change their dollar reserve into euros the US will be in an economic dissaster
