Bush reaffirms all options open regarding Iran


Published: Tuesday June 19, 2007

US President George W. Bush said Tuesday he hoped to resolve the dispute over Iran's nuclear program diplomatically but insisted again all options, including military force, were on the table.

Bush made his remarks to reporters after Iran accused the United States of refusing to abandon plans to attack the Islamic Republic, which Washington says is trying to develop nuclear weapons.

Speaking before talks with Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert, Bush said, "My position hasn't changed and that is that all options are on the table," a standard phrase that does not exclude the use of force.

Referring to Israel, which has raised the alarm about the possibility of a nuclear-armed Iran, Bush said, "As a strong ally, I view that as a serious threat."

But the US leader added that he hoped to resolve the row with Tehran "diplomatically."

I almost hope the idiot DOES try to go into Iran... Cause then I'm pretty sure there WILL be a group willing to remove him by force to stop his madness...
