Cheney hints at Iran strike

US Vice-President Dick Cheney has raised the possibility of military action to stop Iran acquiring nuclear weapons.

He has endorsed Republican senator John McCain’s proposition that the only thing worse than a military confrontation with Iran would be a nuclear-armed Iran.

In an exclusive interview with The Weekend Australian, Mr Cheney said: “I would guess that John McCain and I are pretty close to agreement.”

The visiting Vice-President said that he had no doubt Iran was striving to enrich uranium to the point where they could make nuclear weapons.

He accused Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad of espousing an “apocalyptic philosophy” and making “threatening noises about Israel and the US and others”.

Well Dick, if there’s one thing you know all about, it’s ‘apocalyptic philosophy.’

Israeli leader draws hard line against Syria, Iran, Palestinians
Israel’s prime minister said peace would only come with recognition of its right to exist and an end to the support of violence.

Israel’s ‘right to exist’…what a ridiculous non-issue: like Hamas or Syria have anything to say about it…as if Israel has not rebuffed numerous overtures from the Arabs since 1948…as if Israel is interested in peace. I finally figured it out: virtually everyone who lived in Israel and suffered any moral pangs about its aggression has LEFT. Duh. All that remains is religious wing-nuts and Zionists so rabid they even have Ben-Gurion rolling in his grave…
