Bush Reinstates Preemptive Action Policy.

Last week President Bush reinstated the doctrine of preemptive action. What does this actually mean? Well, it means he is sticking to his guns of attacking countries before they attack us. For an example, removing Saddam Hussein from power before he sold weapons of mass destruction to terrorists to be used against us was preemptive action.

So why did Bush bring this up? Iran. The situation with that Islamic extremist country is worse than it ever was with Iraq. Iran is a state sponsor of terrorism that has pledged to wipe Israel off the map and has vowed the destruction of the United States. Iran is also developing nuclear weapons and some say he could have them within months.

No matter what you might think about going to war with Iran, know this, Iran is already at war with us. The Islamic killers in Iraq are streaming across the border from Iran and are also being supplied by Tehran. So what are we going to do about it? Well, here is some clue. In a national security report released by the White House that was 49 pages long, George Bush wrote: "If necessary, however, under long-standing principles of self defense, we do not rule out the use of force before attacks occur -- even if uncertainty remains as to the time and place of the enemy's attack." It also says that the administration prefers diplomacy.

OK…But guess what folks??? Diplomacy hasn't worked with Iran, nor will it ever, just like it will never work with any Islamic extremist regime. Even UN sanctions seem unlikely to work, especially with China and Russia not supporting the idea. At this point, the only way it seems like we are going to stop Iran's nuclear weapons program is if we do it ourselves. And how do we do that?

By bombing their nuclear reactors, we know where they are. Somebody is going to have to do it. We might be able to get Israel to help us, but if not we have to do it ourselves, and the sooner the better.
