The Global Police?

So, what I want to know is, what exactly are "meaningful consequences?"

IN THIS ARTICLE the Bush Administration says they will send Iran "a clear message" about their nuclear program, and will impose meaningful consequences if they don't comply.

Didn't the Bush Administration basically say the same thing to Iraq?
Where is this heading?
Are we prepared for the consequences?

Two things are going on at the sametime George Bush is a bad President I'm not a Republican but the President of Iran is a maniac he has already said he wants to wipe Israel off the map which would be a second Holocaust on the Jews.

The fact George Bush is a lousy President doesn't excuse a genocidal maniac getting the bomb.So I think 4 things need to be done about this problem.

1)Economic Sanctions against Iran for trying to build a nuclear bomb.The same type of sanctions that were put on the apartheid South African regime.

2)Holocaust education in the Arab countries so even if they don't like it they at least understand why Israel exists

3)Immediate withdrawal of American troops from
Iraq(Our prescence in Iraq has created a region wide backlash that brought the Iranian President to power)

4)The Continuation of the road map between the
Israeli's and Palestinians for a two state solution
provided with Hamas in control of the Palestinian
territories that can even be done(Hamas's election was also part of the anti-Bush backlash)

But the goal still
needs to be an Israel living alongside a Palestinian state.And I would tell you that if you don't want to see an attack on Iran and I agree military force is probably not the way to solve it,then I think you need to support sanctions or find some other nonviolent way to handle this.

But under no conditions can Iran be allowed to get a nuke.I can be reached at andrewfreedman@SBCGlobal.net
