Is bush afraid of a REAL enemy?

rumsfeld cheney & bush were all talking about WMD from iraq & their rapid strike capability & a mushroom cloud over a US city would be too late & we had to rush immediately to war, BUT iran is flaunting their weapons program to the world, daring us to act & mocking our foriegn policies they have no intentions of stopping so why cant we bomb them before they act on thier intentions? this is VERY SERIOUS they are a REAL threat to israel our last crusader stronghold & only ally in the mid east region, cant bush even at least talk tough to them or can he only invade countries without an army?

    Why bomb Iran?

    The Russians pulled out of their nuclear deal with Iran this week because they have not been paid in several months. Some people speculate it is actually because of pressure from the west.

    Story from the Nasdaq website.

    Russia Delays Indefinitely Opening Of Iranian Nuclear Reactor

    Tuesday, Russia announced that it was postponing indefinitely the opening of Iran's already delayed nuclear power plant as Tehran has failed to make timely payments.

    The announcement followed the breakdown of three days of talks last week to settle a disagreement over payments. The move comes as the six major powers indicated that a draft resolution on imposing further new sanctions against the Islamic republic over its nuclear defiance was imminent.

    Last week, the Atomstroiexport company announced its decision not to send its nuclear experts to Iran to complete the Bushehr nuclear power plant over non-payment. The Russians was to deliver the nuclear fuel for it this month.

    A statement from Atomstroiexport said the project would be delayed indefinitely.

    "The time frame has been moved and so the launch cannot happen in September. We simply cannot do it," a spokeswoman for the company said adding "If we cannot launch the station in September, then we cannot deliver the fuel according to the old timetable either."

    The Russians claim the Iranians have paid only a fraction of the $US25 million a month needed to cover construction costs.

    President Bush is not afraid. Instead he is simply following an integrated strategy against Iran that 1) has effectively neutralized Iran militarily; 2) has Iran isolated diplomatically; and 3) is strangling Iran's economy.

    Just because President Bush does not do the Clinton-style useless but highly visible cruise missile attacks - does not mean that he is not dealing with the problem.

    Iran is dangerous and must be treated seriously by the Bush administration before an attack has been launched that is too late for the Americans to react just like what happened on 9/11.

    Even if the white house wanted to go to war with Iran, they would succeed. We do not have the necessary men equipment and money to do so. It is impossible. The only reason Iran is dangerous is becasue mr bush took out saddam who kept him in check. We do not have the army to taske out Iran. Although if isreal was attacked, you bet the U.S. would get the permission to finish the Iranian military off. In a nutshell were bogged down in Iraq, Afghanistan and couldnt pull it off. At the same time were trying to better our relation with te world and another war would put us in the worst position since hitler.

    And NOOO it doesnt justify war becasue we went to war with the damn wrong people. The people who crashed into the WTC were not from Iran or Afghanistan. Bush just wanted to sway the public for his agenda--Iraq...

    ts media that's creates fear in the mind of people through out society in a way of creating hate towards fellow man through video ,music and TV .Its economic progress that's stops the bomb as who wants a country that is un live-able through the means of terror .Calling people pigs makes no difference .Its positive reinforcement through good intent in the media and TV that will also stop the fear of threat and will create a terror free society Its not communist to have positive reinforcement through media outlets to even stop the threat of children picking guns and taking them to schools or streets to kill the innocent .The people at the negotiating tables are the ones that must have good intent to understand what other people as saying as different races talk differently and express themselves different as well .Back in the 50's everybody had there nicknames and way of talking through what was around them as some people of today still talk like this .So what I'm talking about is to stop the threat of war understand your country then you can understand others country's and customs .No politician should fear custom but embrace it as teaches what is wrong and is also an others teachings.

    You have to ask yourself what does Israel want out of all this really. What is their agenda. I know they are stacked here in the good old USA. We see quite clearly what they did to Lebanon. So do we play follow the leader here or do we lead. With all do respect to Saudi Arabia, and our friends in the middle east. We need a genuine pow wow a group hug. A get together maybe a cocktail party! This is a great country I hate to see it go to hell because of bad leadership, and grown men thinking only about themselves.

    I think you'll discover that if push comes to shove, Mr. Bush will react as strongly as Jack Kennedy did. A coward he ain't.
