Preemptive Nuclear Strike

The neocons are chomping at the bit for an excuse to use nuclear weapons. George W. Bush wants to go down in history as the man who saved the world from Iran getting the bomb. Iran wants to convince the world it has nuclear capabilities and has a right to them. This is a recipe for disaster.

Approximately 40,000 people live in Natanz, Iran. Thirteen times the number of people killed on September 11, 2001. This is where the United States believes that Iran has its nuclear research facility some seventy five feet under ground. Afghanistan proved that bunker busting bombs do not work. Iraq proved that American Diplomacy is never attempted.

The United States and Iran are not talking. Not to each other.

Our Ambassador to the United Nations, John Bolton is a belligerent proponent of Preemptive First Strike. No diplomacy is taking place.

Barring tactical nuclear weapons the Bush administration is considering prolonged air attacks on the general population of Iran for the purpose of, “breaking their will.” This had the opposite effect on the British during the Blitz when Nazi Germany bombed London. We can see the results of “Shock and Awe” in Iraq. The people in Iran generally support the United States. George W. Bush will put an end to that..

George Bush is right about one thing; he is a war President.

This country needs a peace President.
