Day 2: Coverage on Condi

"LONDON (AP) - Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice said on Friday a U.S. attack on Iran "is simply not on the agenda at this point," despite the United States' continued criticism of Iran's human rights record and suspected nuclear weapons ambitions."

Nothing is final yet, but it appears that the Bush Administration is going to hold off on military action until undeniably and absolutely necessary. Harsh and aggressive diplomacy is the path America has decided to take at this current juncture. After meeting with Tony Blair for a 90 minute breakfast discussion, Secretary Rice commented further on the Iranian menace that threatens us all:

"We believe particularly in regard to the nuclear issue that while no one ever asks the American president to take all his options, any of his options off the table, that there are plenty of diplomatic means at our disposal to get the Iranians to finally live up to their international obligations."

Of course, with America's popularity in Europe at its current state, we must seek a peaceful solution to this problem even when there is not one in sight. And we must not relent in our efforts to stop Iran through economic sanctions; however, if they don't yield their power soon enough, we might see the hawkish, practical side of Condi flare up, and the President's dream of liberty may manifest itself yet again in coup'd etat. Hopefully, we can avoid violence by having Iran agree to forfeit its authority and nuclear weapons programs to the Great Satan while concordantly aborting all support of terrorist organizations. Oh wait, that would never happen.

Expect Condi and Dubya to act on what we all know is inevitable, and expect Rummy to grow excited in anticipation of another liberation. Why do I say this? Look at what else Condi said:

"I don't think anybody thinks that the unelected mullahs who run that regime are a good thing for the Iranian people and for the region," and, "The Iranians know what they need to do. It's not the absence of anybody's involvement that is keeping the Iranians from knowing what they need to do."

That, with Bush's SOTU comments is tantamount to a very serious warning. We stand firm in our support for the Bush Administration and especially Condi on her trip to Europe - a moral wasteland of effeminate muckadoos. I wonder what Iran's response to the good ol' US of A could possibly be?

Iran's supreme leader on Thursday said Bush's policies toward Iran would fail.

"America is like one of the big heads of a seven-headed dragon," Ayatollah Ali Khamenei said in Iran's capital. "The brains directing it are Zionist and non-Zionist capitalists who brought Bush to power to meet their own interests."

Bad decision, Ali. Yay Condi. Save Iran!
