President Bush has the Cojones to Stop Iran, But Does the Rest of America?

Iran with it's lust for nuclear weapons is going ahead with it's program. And I would bet you a paycheck that America and Israel would be on the receiving end of this program. President Bush understands this and has the cojones to stop Iran.
In a stern warning to Iran, President Bush said "all options are on the table" if the Iranians refuse to comply with international demands to halt their nuclear program, pointedly noting he has already used force to protect U.S. security.

Bush's statement during an interview on Israeli TV late Friday was unusually harsh. He previously said diplomacy should be used to persuade Iran to suspend its nuclear program and if that failed then the U.N. Security Council should impose sanctions.

The U.S. government and others fear Iran's nuclear work is secretly designed to produce nuclear weapons. Iran's leaders deny that, saying it is only for the generation of electricity.

In the interview, Bush said the United States and Israel "are united in our objective to make sure that Iran does not have a weapon."

But, he said, if diplomacy fails "all options are on the table."

"The use of force is the last option for any president. You know, we've used force in the recent past to secure our country," he said.

What the Peaceniks and Appeaseniks don't understand is Iran isn't going to voluntarily stop, because hate drives them, so they are going to have to be stopped against their will. Talk has accomplished nothing, and I doubt that sanctions will accomplish anything either, so it is going to have to come down to force. President Bush doesn't want to get into a war with Iran, but he also swore an oath to protect the America people, and he, unlike the previous president, takes that oath very seriously. I hope it doesn't come down to a war, but if it has to be to keep Iran from nuking America, then so be it.
