Biden: US Ready To Take Pre-Emptive Action On Iran
3 News ^ | February 8, 2009

Posted on 02/08/2009 6:10:47 AM PST by Fennie

Vice President Joe Biden warned Saturday that the US stands ready to take pre-emptive action against Iran if it does not abandon nuclear ambitions and its support for terrorism.

But in his first major policy speech as President Barack Obama's No 2, Biden also declared the US open for talks with Iran and Russia to repair relations. And he reached out to the world with a promise that the Obama administration will work with allies to solve global problems.

"We will draw upon all the elements of our power - military and diplomatic, intelligence and law enforcement, economic and cultural - to stop crises from occurring before they are in front of us," he told the gathering in his 25-minute address.

No one is sure what Joe really said. If it were possible to talk out of three sides of his mouth, Biden would do it.

does this mean they’re going to write a letter of deep concern or grave concern??

I could have sworn the Obiden teams was against US pre-emptive action? Oh, right, only when Bush was doing it.

You should have taken pre-emptive action against baldness, Joe, then your head wouldn’t look like a dying spider plant.

We might be “ready”, but Mr Bambi won’t do a thing. Ever. This man defines “wuss”.

The only person he’ll try to attack is Rush, and Rush’ll eat him alive.

Heh!

Joe Biden? Foot, meet Mouth.

Joey Biden acts like a six year old who’s been told a secret and told not to tell.

He’s just the greatest addition to the Obama-Usurper’s Team as any other Democrat I guess.

If someone presses him, will he reveal the truth about Obama-Usurper’s BIRTH PLACE?

I wonder if he even knows it. If he did, he’d have already let it slip.

I didn’t see it, but what a sight it must have been.

When Biden speaks, words pour forth from all sides of EVERY orifice.

“Biden: US Ready To Take Pre-Emptive Action On Iran”

Surely this is a misstatement and VP Biden meant to say “US Ready To Talk Pre-Emptive Action On Iran”. This is the same policy Pres. Clinton had, they will only act as a diversion, when their chestnuts are getting singed , and that will be a couple of missiles at a tent. We have seen their reaction when real action is taken, they go apoplectic.

Hillary Clinton in her Black Pants suit with the scarf in gray checks and matching kneepads will lead the delegatioon to Qum to meet with the Mullahs.

The pre emptive genuflection to the power of peace will be the action and will be hailed world wide as the greatest peace making effort in world history

Maybe he is going to issue them “piggy parachutes” or use the model in post 16, supposedly they won’t have to worry about being eaten.

The other problem with Joe is that he takes himself seriously.

Sure Joe, you'll be in the trench too, with Bubba at your side. Nothing personal, actually it is personal, I don't don't want either of you on my flank, certainly not at my back. And you can throw BHO in that mix, The One who would have enlisted, but there were no hot wars at the time. Just little stuff, like Beirut and Grenada, not worthy of those buffed pecks.

Ambassador Bolton has it right.

'With no likelihood of US use of force, that leaves Israel'( John Bolton)

You'd be there with the crocodile tears though, fortunately they won't be necessary.

I'll give this to The Biden, he's the most entertaining VP since Agnew.
