#1 My fellow Americans, I'm pleased to tell you today that I've signed legislation that will outlaw Iran forever. We begin bombing in five minutes.

#2 Jeeze Louise! This guy wants an Nuke in 4 months and I have some fuel system assessment reports due on Monday. Tell him to get in line!

Wait! I don't have that nuke project on my plate. Hey, I'm off the hook. Whew!

#3 I wonder if the January deadline still holds if Kerry wins? Probably could relax it until March or April under a Kerry administration and not announce it until after having taken delivery on the nuclear fuel offered by J"F"K.

#4 This is the most dangerous moment we've seen since the Andropov era. Bush needs to up the ante at every table: in Iraq, we need to seize Samarra and Fallujah and the other sunni/ba'athist holdout cities with overwhelming force, and hold them. W resp to Iran, we need to make it clear that we will take out their facilities in no time flat as soon as the election's over. And w resp to the election, Bush and Rove need to paint Kerry as the idiot peacenik he is, one who would never contemplate the decisive military offensives toward Iraq and Iran that this moment requires.

#5 If Iran doesn't back down they may get a nuke before 4 months is up only it wont be one of their own.

#6 Agreed, lex. And Bush needs to COMMUNICATE to the american public what is at stake here, and not use the worn out "freedom" and "eveldoers" platitudes. This is a time for decisiveness and laying out the situation concise and clearly. It is a given that Kerry is going to try to undermine the effort and bite GW's ankles. Big deal. Bush can be presidental by leading. And Kerry will be shown as the complainer that he is. LEADERSHIP.

#7 Bush should go on TV and make a nationwide address that lays out the stakes, the strategy, and summarizes what's happening in Samarrah right now and what will happen vis-a-vis Iran.

#8 Okay, it was widely known before this that Khamenei was a nut job, but after this demand the nuclear facilities in Iran need to go boom! I also think for obvious reasons we shouldn't force the Isralies to do it, we should do it ourselves.
