Time to think of a Nuclear Iran, or is that Persia?

Even if President George Bush can't pronounce "nuclear," the reality is that he can't do much to stop Iran from becoming a Nuclear power.

The real Q is ... what does anyone do about that?

As always, the states seems to be engaged in a policy of attempting to "isolate" miscreants. Sorry, ain't gonna work this time.

Sanctions and other similar efforts only work if the population of the targeted nation isn't behind the leadership.

In this case, the Iranian people want their nation to have the bomb. One can quibble with this desire, but one can't ignore the fact that Persia has a long and proud history going back millenia, and 70 million Persians recognize this.

So-o ... now what?

I respectfully disagree. George Bush has every intention of thwarting Iran's nuclear ambitions, up to and including the use of military force with conventional AND tactical nuclear weapons before he leaves the office of the Presidency.

I have posted several articles about the inevitable war with Iran on my blog, if you're interested. (I didn't post the links to them out of courtesy).

OH--I forgot to mention: Bush is determined to leave a "legacy" that includes regime-change in Iran, nuclear program or no. He feels since he is on his last term, he should act, because the presidents that come after him "won't have the courage".
