Bush looking for another war

Iran is a member of the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT). As a member of this treaty, it has the right to involve itself in peaceful nuclear energy development, with monitoring by the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA). It has never violated any part of the treaty requirements, and has always been open to monitoring and inspections.

None of this matters in relation to the US and its unfounded and unproven claims that Iran is building nuclear weapons. All they're trying to do is cause everyone to be afraid, which is the usual US tactic before it attacks a country that has done nothing.

Iran is trying to negotiate with the US, and with the international community. However, George Bush, the wonderful diplomat that he is, is refusing to talk. Responding to a letter from the Iranian President, Bush said:
"It looks like it did not answer the main question that the world is asking and that is, 'When will you get rid of your nuclear programme?'"
As a member of the NPT, Iran is not required to 'get rid' of its programme. As a member of the NPT it's fully entitled to have a nuclear program. Laws, treaties and facts, however, are considered irrelevent by Bush and his Administration.

Why let the law and the truth get in the way of a good reason to go to war?

The obvious answer to these questions is that Bush is doing all he can to go to war with Iran, regardless of the law and treaties and the fact that Iran has done nothing to show it's doing what Bush says it's doing.

There is more evidence of terrorism coming from Pakistan than there is from Iran. Pakistan already has nuclear weapons, and also is NOT a member of the NPT. No one bothers them though, because they have nuclear weapons.

It's completely and plainly obvious that the US wants to go to war with Iran. Nothing is going to stop it. The law isn't going to stop it. The truth isn't going to stop it. No other country is going to stop it. The US is plainly going to attack Iran.

So what is Iran to do?

If it's like Iraq, it'll sit back and hope that the US won't attack.

But it's not like Iraq. Iran knows the US is going to attack.

So the Iranian President sent a letter to George Bush 'asking for dialogue'. The letter also encouraged Bush and the western world to adopt Islam as the main religion, as Christianity just wasn't working.

There's an interesting Islamic law that says before an enemy is attacked, they must be given a final chance to convert to Islam. Bush has received his final chance to convert, and has rejected it.

Since it's so obvious that the US is going to attack Iran, wouldn't it be absolutely stupid and irresponsible of Iran, as a nation, to do nothing? Absolutely.

I believe this letter is a sign that Iran is not going to sit back and do nothing. It's going to attack its enemy, now that it's given its enemy a last chance to convert to Islam.

I think the next few weeks are going to be very interesting. My money is on the Iranians moving into Iraq to help their allies against US forces, as well as missile attacks on US ships in the Persian Gulf.

Actually, based on the CNN english translation of the letter, Iran does not ask Bush to convert to islam, but rather, with reference to the commonalities between all the judeo-christian-islamic religions, to simply become more focused on religion. (although the language used takes some care not to validate the essential differences between islam and christianity as to the nature of christ)

I doubt iran can seriously believe that the US is likely to become a theocracy as a result of that letter :)

If you have a look here you'll see a commentary on why the terminology is:

...essentially a call on the American leader to embrace Islam, according to an Islamic specialist and author.

Is the war against terrorism a war or just an attack on terrorism? Is terrorism an attack on humanity, or is it just a simple expression that means something only rhetorical islamic's understand?

What's amusing is that terrorism is simply a military tactic, so the 'war against terrorism' is a war against a tactic. It's like saying "We're going to go to war against flanking maneuvers!" Or, "We'll go to war against bullying! Damn those bullys!" It's simply a method of achieving a goal.

Terrorism is not an attack on humanity, it's simply a tactic against civilian targets to attain a goal against a militarily superior power.

Neither is it an expression that only Islamics understand. It's the name of a military tactic.

That's all. :-)
