From today's WaPo:
"President Bush told newspaper editors in Washington yesterday that Iran 'will be dealt with, starting through the United Nations' if it does not stop developing nuclear weapons and begin total cooperation with international inspectors.
Bush said he will encourage allies to insist to the Iranians that they live up to commitments to cooperate with U.N. inspectors and end any enriching and reprocessing of uranium.
'The Iranians need to feel the pressure from the world that any nuclear weapons program will be uniformly condemned -- it's essential that they hear that message,' he said. 'The development of a nuclear weapon in Iran is intolerable, and a program is intolerable. . . . Otherwise, they will be dealt with, starting through the United Nations.' "...
"Nucular" weapons. Check.
Cooperation with inspectors. Check.
Outside pressure. Check.
Sound familiar? When I read stuff like this I want to print and save it. It would be nice to refer to it after we go to war with Iran and we find that their weapons cache is as fortified as Iraq's.
