Bush says Iran will not get nuclear weapon
US President George W. Bush says "all options are on the table" for making sure Iran dismantles its nuclear program, and that Washington will never let Tehran acquire atomic weapons.
Well now, that's pretty unequivocal, and the best news I've heard in a long time.

Why? The key to winning -- actually winning, as opposed to "managing" -- the War on Islamic Fascism, is eliminating the rogue states that provide sanctuary, support, and potentially -- and most dangerously for the continuance of Life as We Know It(tm) -- nuclear weapons.

And such states are far easier to deal with if they lack nuclear weapons -- which is why our options are already limited in dealing with North Korea (thanks a lot, Jimmy and Madeline, you pathetic fools).

Without the support of these states -- and their number is dwindling -- social network theory is indicating that terrorist groups like al-Qaeda must necessarily fracture down to relatively manageable groups of 80-150 members at most, or else their security is blown.

Small groups like that cannot wage any kind of sustainable campaigns, and do indeed become mere law-enforcement issues.

But with the backing of a state, with diplomatic privileges, passports, and other resources, they can safely grow to larger sizes and become potentially unstoppable, undeterrable delivery vehicles for WMD, which threatens our very civilization.

And an Iranian nuclear capability would make destroying their evil theocracy infinitely harder.

Now we finally have a statement from the White House, that indicates they understand this.

This is the only issue that should matter in the next election, because all other issues depend, you know, on us being alive.

Or at least not under martial law.

And Kerry's position, stated on his website, is to give Iran nuclear fuel to help them along on their "peaceful" project...And if that fails, well, he'll try to get the IAEA to refer them to the hopelessly divided and ineffectual Security Council...

I'm sure that has them quaking in their boots!

The argument that he really doesn't mean that, and that cooler heads will prevail in the end, is ludicrous on two counts. First, nobody stopped a similarly ridiculous plan to "help" North Korea that way in the 90s. And second, the people making that argument are the very same ones who denigrate Bush as some kind of puppet that only does as he's told, as distinct from Kerry, who is ostensibly smarter and has real ideas...except when it comes to this idea, when Kerry is DEFENDED by arguing he's, well, nothing but a puppet who is going to do as he's told.


Now even Kerry supporters have been infected with flip-flop-ism!

Hopefully this is a sign of things to come.
