Iran: US not in a position to take military action

Well that hasn't stopped us before.

Iran said yesterday that the United States was not in a position to take military action against it after a veiled threat from US Vice-President Dick Cheney and urged Washington and its allies to engage in dialogue.

Look, there's a time for talk and there's a time for action. Unfortunately the US administration doesn't really know what time it is and they usually just resort to action. As much as I really, really wouldn't want to see military action in Iran, it's going to happen. We all know it.

"We do not see America in a position to impose another crisis on its tax payers inside America by starting another war in the region," Iranian Foreign Minister Manouchehr Mottaki told reporters yesterday.

You're underestimating just how many crisises our government is willing to put us through.

Mottaki was responding to Cheney who renewed Washington's warning to Iran earlier yesterday that "all options" were on the table if Tehran continues to defy UN demands to halt uranium enrichment.

Looks like we're just not happy until the entire world hates us. As much as I know Iran having a nuclear bomb is like giving a serial killer a hacksaw, I just don't think I can stomach more military action, at least, not for another two years.

I wish the people in our current administration would shut that hole in the middle of their head, just below their nose!... they keep telling people they hate, that we're going to do something but what that something is...who knows.
just keep quiet, know one is taking us seriously any more, with all their war talk...that's what happens when people who never served in the military, get in office...they just talk until everybody gets tied of hearing them.
