Bush Demands World Must Rally Against Iran
According to this story, President Bush is now backing Israel's plan to use nuclear weapons in a pre-emptive strike on Iran's nuclear energy installations :
US President George W. Bush promised Israel's opposition leader Binyamin Netanyahu that the United States will join the Jewish state in a nuclear strike against Iran, Israel Radio reported today.Iran claims that Bush's pumping of the supposed 'attack' by Iranian navy vessels on US warships in the Strait Of Hormuz is nothing but a psy-op, aimed at building tension and part of preparations for War On Iran.
Former Prime Minister Netanyahu, opposition Likud party's hardline chairman who opposes the US-backed Annapolis peace process, reiterated to President Bush his stance, that a pre-emptive nuclear strike against Iran's nuclear installations was the only way to stop the Islamic nation's nuclear weapons ambitions.
"I told him my position and Bush agreed," Netanyahu told Israel Radio.
During their 45-minute meeting at King David hotel in Jerusalem Netanyahu also told Bush that "Jerusalem belongs to the Jewish people and will remain under Israeli sovereignty for eternity."
President Bush issued a stark warning to Iran over Strait of Hormuz incident, saying that "all options are on the table to protect our assets."
“There will be serious consequences if they attack our ships, pure and simple,” Bush said during the joint news conference with Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert in Jerusalem. “And my advice to them is, don't do it.”
The US Navy has now withdrawn its allegations that radio threats that US ships would be "blown up" by Iranian patrol vessels originated with Iranians.
Disturbing parallels are now being drawn between the supposed incident in the Strait Of Hormuz and the utterly fictitious Gulf Of Tonkin incident that plunged the United States deep into the Vietnam War.
Did Bush go to the Middle East to push for peace between Israel and Palestine, or was the trip more about firming up War On Iran plans with Israel and trying to raise support for nuclear strikes on Iran amongst US-allied Arab dictatorships?
US President George W. Bush said Iran is threatening the security of the world, and the United States and Arab allies must join together to confront the danger "before it's too late".
Mr Bush said Iran funds terrorist extremists, undermines peace in Lebanon, sends arms to the Taliban, seeks to intimidate its neighbours with alarming rhetoric, defies the United Nations and destabilises the entire region by refusing to be open about its nuclear program.
“Iran is the world's leading state sponsor of terror,” Mr Bush said in a speech he delivered about midway through his eight-day Mid-East trip that began with a renewed push for an Israeli-Palestinian peace pact - an accord whose “time has come,” he said.
“Iran's actions threaten the security of nations everywhere,” Mr Bush said. “So the United States is strengthening our long-standing security commitments with our friends in the Gulf, and rallying friends around the world to confront this danger before it is too late.”
