The Candidates Debate Iran

President Bush says:

"On Iran, I hope we can do the same thing, continue to work with the world to convince the Iranian mullahs to abandon their nuclear ambitions.
We worked very closely with the foreign ministers of France, Germany and Great Britain, who have been the folks delivering the message to the mullahs that if you expect to be part of the world of nations, get rid of your nuclear programs. The IAEA is involved. There's a special protocol recently been passed that allows for inspections. I hope we can do it. And we've got a good strategy."

Bush doesn't want Iran to maintain their nuclear programs. He is currently approaching the matter by consulting our allies, involving them in a process that could eventually lead to a conflict not unlike what transpired in Iraq. We acted before Iraq became an imminent threat.

Senator Kerry:

"With respect to Iran, the British, French, and Germans were the ones who initiated an effort without the United States, regrettably, to begin to try to move to curb the nuclear possibilities in Iran. I believe we could have done better.
I think the United States should have offered the opportunity to provide the nuclear fuel, test them, see whether or not they were actually looking for it for peaceful purposes. If they weren't willing to work a deal, then we could have put sanctions together.

You read that right! Kerry would have given Iran nuclear fuel to test them and see if they would play nice with the rest of the world. That is absolutely insane. This individual is running for a position of great influence in matters of national security for this country and the world, and he says he would have handed Iran the ability to make a TEST them! Iran knows about tests! They took American hostages and held them for 444 days when Democrat Jimmy Carter was President and gave them back when we elected Reagan. We've got the oppotunity to skip this Carter by re-electing George W. Bush on November 2nd.

God help us.
