Bush Refuses to Rule Out Nuclear Attack Upon Iran 

It's official. From an article posted by Reuters today:

President Bush refused on Tuesday to rule out nuclear strikes against Iran if diplomacy fails to curb the Islamic Republic's atomic ambitions.

Iran, which says its nuclear programme is purely peaceful, told world powers it would pursue atomic technology, whatever they decide at a meeting in Moscow later in the day.

Bush said in Washington he would discuss Iran's nuclear activities with China's President Hu Jintao this week and avoided ruling out nuclear retaliation if diplomatic efforts fail.

Asked if options included planning for a nuclear strike, Bush replied: "All options are on the table. We want to solve this issue diplomatically and we're working hard to do so."

Bush and his close advisors want to do this, and they will if we don't stop them. They want to incinerate Iranians to legitimize the use of nuclear weapons as one of the primary means of maintaining US dominance for the rest of this century.

It is insane, as even a conventional attack will initiate the most horrible conflict that many of us have ever experienced. With the exposure of the absurdity of resisting the state sanctioned violence of Bush through domestic political means, it will also drastically increase the probability that some will decide that personal violence is the only alternative. The shadow lengthens and grows darker day by day, as we are literally approaching the point of no return.
