The American Israel Public Affairs Committee criticized the White House for not pushing the U.N. nuclear watchdog to recommend sanctions for Iran.There is no question that Iran is pursuing nukes and the rest of the world doesn't want to deal with it. Likely Europe doesn't want to upset business relationships with Iran.
The Bush administration backed a European Union bid last week to reopen negotiations with Iran that would allow Iran to continue with its nuclear program as long as it exports its uranium to Russia for enrichment.
We invaded Iraq for much less. Unlike Iraq, Iran actually has a nuclear program and poses a real threat to our friends in the region and stability in the ME. So where are those balls for which Gdub is so famous?
The truth is we're bogged down in Iraq and don't have the reach to do anything about Iran. In other words, the folly in Iraq is an ongoing threat to the national security of the United States.
But of course, the Bushies would never admit this, so suddenly their all about detente. WTF?
And when Iran actually does go nuclear, the GOP will blame the Ds for being soft on them, and America will believe them.
