Iran: Keep Your Options Open

Posted by Reuben Ingber on October 3, 2007

I am not about to say that we should go into Iran today and level the place, however I am going to say it is ridiculous to place any form of restrictions on the options the President has to deal with the Iranian nuclear crisis. The NY SUN blog writes:

Senator Clinton’s announcement yesterday that she plans to support legislation to block President Bush from taking military action against Iran without prior approval from Congress did not sit well with Mitt Romney.   

I personal think that those in Congress supporting legislation like this are trying to fix their “mistake,” when they authorized the Iraq war. In politics you can’t “Monday morning quarterback,” in other words try to fix your mistake. You must move forward and deal with the current situation in a manner that protects the country. Passing legislation that would “block President Bush from taking military action against Iran,” is not the right thing to do. What Congress should do is  work with the President to help defuse the situation as well as await for the President to ask to perform military action in Iran, he did it for Iraq, and he’ll do it again.

President Bush realizes that our armed forces are at a breaking point. In order to go into Iran, a third front in the “war on terror,” we would need to leave someplace else, Iraq or Afghanistan and we can’t do that. I believe the President recognizes this and is attempting to defuse the Iranian Nuclear Crisis, multilaterally through the United Nations with sanctions.What do you think?
