Bush: Iran, the Single Biggest Threat in Middle East

US President George W. Bush today called Iran the “single biggest threat” to peace in the Middle East. Bush was answering a question at Israel’s Channel 10 TV, “To me it's the single biggest threat to peace in the Middle East, the Iranian regime.” [AFP, 12 May].

Bush blamed Iran for the situation in Lebanon, “Their funding of Hezbollah -- look what's happening in Lebanon now, a young democracy trying to survive.”

“By the way it's in Israel's interest that the Lebanese democracy survives. You need to be concerned about Iran and you are concerned about Iran and so are we,” Bush said.

Bush is to arrive in Israel on Wednesday on a three-day stay in celebration of Israel’s 60th birthday. The president will also visit Saudi Arabia and Egypt. He will also meet Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas and Jordanian King Abdullah in Egypt.

Nous Tenons Á Notre Avis

It is in our nature to believe that our opinion is the right opinion. But everyone, be they liberal or conservative, understands that another war will break the back of the American economy.

Add to this the fact that Iran has over ten million men of military age, and it becomes an issue of both blood and treasure. The only way that America can stand against such an opposition is through a prolonged campaign of lethal air strikes, which will involve the slaughter of innocent civilians and bring the rightful outrage of the entire world upon our heads.

Not only would an attack against the sovereign state of Iran be wrong, it would be extremely foolish.

President Bush-
Il ne desire pas paix
Il ne desire rien mais guerre.
Il tient un livre de douleur et larmes
Il tient á ouvrir.
Il ne parait pas que il comprend
Il ne s’agit pas de legs…
Il ne faut pas ouvrir ce livre
Il ne contiennent que mort.
