Skip to comments.Sen. Harry Reid: U.S. Has No Military Option in Iran
Posted on 04/21/2006 4:41:46 PM PDT by edpc
The Bush administration is relying too heavily on other countries in the international effort to stop Iran from developing nuclear weapons, according to Sen. Harry Reid.
Reid, D-Nev., said the administration should be taking the lead, but instead is relying on Germany, France and Great Britain to convince Iran to end its uranium enrichment program.
"It is hard to comprehend," Reid said. "We should be involved at trying to arrive at a diplomatic solution. ... Not just these three countries."
Reid said the Middle East is a "powder keg" because of U.S. failures in Iraq, the rise of fundamentalism and the recent election of Hamas in Palestine.
"Our not being involved diplomatically in trying to solve the situation in Iran shows the Bush failure in foreign policy there and elsewhere."
And he said the U.S. has no military option in Iran.
"We don't have the resources to do it" because of the ongoing war in Iraq," he said.
Bush should throw Reid in jail.
Time for Connie to put her boots on and pay the good Senator a visit.
I was listening to talk radio yesterday and one of the generals or one of the leftist politicos that have been skewing Bush over his Iraq polices, provided his vision yesterday. Can't remember who it was, I've heard so many sound bites recently.
He suggested we train the Iraqis to defend themselves and then leave a contingent in the area to back them up. He admitted we'd have to keep people on station for years to come.
Sound familiar to any you reading this? LOL, that's just what we're doing. Those criticizing our efforts in Iraq are pathetic losers.
It's the same old crap, controversy, and confusion. After 9/11 these twits did the same thing when they bleated and brayed about how something had to be done. Then when President Bush took action, they criticized and lied and tried to get him impeached. They are, and always will be, the jackass party.
O'Reilly had one of these bozos on yesterday who insisted things were going GOOD in Iraq but still wanted Rumsfeld to resign - can you believe that?!
You know, I'm beginning to get the feeling that Murtha is really as dumb as he sounds.
Damned if we go it alone, damned if we use diplomacy, damned if we rely on the french and british.
That's all they do....bitch bitch bitch
Why would anyone in their right mind listen to the
Dim Bulb from Searchlight?
It's all about the reformation of the Pentagon. The generals could care less about the troops in Iraq or national security.
I'm pretty sure we have not had diplomatic relations with Iran since 1979.... and for good reason.
Poor, sad, dingy Harry.
These people cannot be allowed to hold a majority in either chamber of Congress. Our soldiers deserve better.
The GOP clearly hasn't handled every situation in a manner in which many of us would like....but their are times to step away from them and times not to. This is a time in history where the ilk of the Democrat party cannot be allowed to hold a majority in any branch of Gov't.
No military option, huh? Someones in for a noisy surprise.
"Help me, I'm stuck on stupid!"
"Sorry Goober, you're on your own."
This is absolutely right, and very well put.
We should say it every day, to every Republican.
What was his justification then? "Like, well, I woke up today and it hit me. Maybe Rumsfeld should go..."
You know, these days you don't know if you should be laughing or crying. Folks are just nutty out there.
