Posted on 11/07/2011 4:32:03 AM PST by Reaganite Republican
AP via TownHall: Former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice says the U.S. should consider even tougher penalties against Iran's government and "be doing everything we can to bring it down."
Rice tells ABC's "This Week" that the U.S. should never take the option of military force off the table when it comes to dealing with Iran.
She says the current Iranian government is trying to obtain a nuclear weapon and has repressed its own people. Rice says "the regime has absolutely no legitimacy left."
Diplomats have told The Associated Press that the U.N. atomic agency plans to disclose intelligence this coming week suggesting that Iran made computer models of a nuclear warhead.
And if we don't bomb Iran now, Israel will.... take that to the bank. I therefore consider it all but inevitable in the short-to-medium term, and far better with the US involved than without: after all, it's our idiot 'leadership' that handed over Tehran to the Mullahs in the first place, paving the way for 40 years of non-progress in every arena... perhaps we owe the Persian people that.
Consider that Iran is the ONE unstable country in the Middle East that would likely move away from anti-Western Islamists if given the chance to escape their current oppressive form of government. Yet rather than support those people when they bravely rose up against the brutal Mullahs/Ahmedinijad in early 2009, Obama looked the other way as Tehran shot unarmed civilian protesters (same crime as Gaddafi!)..
Now this year Obama helped hand Libya over to Al Qaida while ignoring the country that's actually a self-proclaimed (loudly) enemy of the United States and actively working on ways to attack us.... if you're not wondering who's side Barack Obama is on by now you can't possibly be paying attention:
I need an acceptable position on this issue to support you...

Listen up, you maggots. The woman is talking.
Apropos of nothing, I filled my entire gas tank last evening, first time in a while. Price was $3.279 a gallon.
Thanks Reaganite Republican.
I met a British guy over the weekend who’s in their Army. He said he met Thatcher at this appearance she made in a PX. The first thing she did was walk in and order a double whiskey! Downed it immediately and was met with rapturous applause he said lol
Obviously, I disagree
BTW, this is why I support Republicans. Even the most liberal, pro-abortion, rubber-backed, noodle-spined RINO is going to be tough on National Defense and not afraid to stand up for America on Foreign Policy. Democrats have been looking for ways to end American exceptionalism for the past 40 years.
But, but, but RonP says we just need to make friends.
I think that’s the kind of thinking I’m trying to confront with this...
There is a well in Qom that needs to have a permanent, fused quartz cap on top of it.
Why doesn’t Condi talk to the man she and Colon Powell voted for in the White House.
Bush had the necessary military assets to attack Iran right at hand in Iraq, the Gulf, & Afghanistan. Any attack now will require MONTHS of buildup & dithering, giving Iran those months to prepare, & possibly to take the nuclear or WMD initiative. Recall the burning Kuwaiti oilfields & massive oil spill in the Gulf.
Iran was & still is sponsoring terrorism in Iraq & around the world. Iran vows to destroy Israel & the USA, which is certain to start a much wider, more dangerous war in the region, with the use of WMDs a distinct possibility. Iran openly sponsors Hamas & Hezbollah, 2 terrorist orgs. which directly threaten our National Interests in the Med & ME.
The only thing that has changed since GWB’s presidency is the immediacy of the danger, which could cause fatal mistakes to be made in haste.
I am so mad with GWB for leaving this danger in place, & the problem in the hands of a military moron, I could spit. Rice shares my contempt. If Israel takes a fatal blow from Iran, it will be George W. Bush's fault.
With getting gasoline?
