Skip to comments.Bolton: Bush 'doesn't see sanctions can't stop Iran now'
Posted on 06/26/2007 5:43:33 PM PDT by Anti-Hillary
Sanctions and diplomacy have failed and it may be too late for internal opposition to oust the Islamist regime, leaving only military intervention to stop Iran's drive to nuclear weapons, the US's former ambassador to the UN, John Bolton, told The Jerusalem Post on Tuesday.
Worse still, according to Ambassador Bolton, the Bush administration does not recognize the urgency of the hour and that the options are now limited to only the possibility of regime change from within or a last-resort military intervention, and it is still clinging to the dangerous and misguided belief that sanctions can be effective.
As a consequence, Bolton said he was "very worried" about the well-being of Israel. If he were in Israel's predicament, he said, "I'd be pushing the US very hard. I am pushing the US [administration] very hard, from the outside, in Washington."

See my tagline....
Bush vision tainted?
Color me shocked!
A comma for the headline, oh for a comma! :-)
Regarding your tagline, You are Wise my friend......
A nuclear-armed, jihadist-infested Iran isn't good for America either, to put it mildly. No need for Bush to be gun shy -- this won't be an occupation/nation-building/social-engineering effort. (In fact, that would be most undesirable for too many reasons to list). Just sink their navy, take out their nuke sites, and be done with it.
Worse still, according to Ambassador Bolton, the Bush administration does not recognize the urgency of the hour and that the options are now limited to only the possibility of regime change from within or a last-resort military intervention, and it is still clinging to the dangerous and misguided belief that sanctions can be effective.Maybe Bush converted to Islam and didn't tell anyone. Maybe Aliens ate his brain and left his body to shamble about the White House to scare children and support dangerous legislation. What happened to the damned president!? This like the Manchurian Candidate only not the wretched remake but the original thriller.
This is just more of what I have been getting for the last few weeks in email. This Administration is seriously out of whack with the real world right now and it is starting to get freaky.
We have a long time to go before the election and people better wake up that this is not some lark for President but we are facing massive problems that are being left by this Administration and their kumbaya. If Bush, Cheney, and Rove and their puppets support a candidate, you all had better ask why? Not donors because some donors are donating to more than one candidate but political operatives associated with Bush/Cheney/Rove because most people don’t want a Bush around them again.
Bolton on Iran ping.
I like your tagline. ;)
Bush is “too good” a man. I don’t think FDR or Truman spent every Sunday receiving a steady stream of kin for brunch in the White House. The emotional toll is probably clouding his judgment, and I think even his immigration views are being shaped by a fragile heart with no logic whatsoever.
Lately, so much of what he says and does (not just immigration) makes me wonder just who the heck we elected. I don’t think this was what I signed on for when I voted last time.
""We have fiddled away four years, in which Europe tried to persuade Iran to give up voluntarily," he complained. "Iran in those four years mastered uranium conversion from solid to gas and now enrichment to weapons grade... We lost four years to feckless European diplomacy and our options are very limited.""
If Iran attacks DC, the government will relocate to the secret Southern White House inside Mount Popocatépetl. From there, the United States of Mexico will launch a furious response with the “piñata II” cruise missile, which will rain UN warnings down upon a terrified Mahmoud Ahmadinejad.
Clearly, a lot pf people in DC don’t give a damn what we the people think.
So others are seeing this self-defeatist attiude in the president as well.
Not exactly a reassusing quality for a CIC.
Bolton gets it. Bush and the Europeans don’t !!!
If you’re shocked.. i’m awed...
at the stupidity of our government.
