No Need To Trust Bush In Iran

The Moderate Voice has a good article on potential strategies for the Iran nuclear enrichment program. It ends with the question, "Why on earth should we trust George W. Bush in Iran?"

I don't think we will need to trust George W. Bush (thank heavens). The Israeli Prime Minister has made it clear how the problem will be resolved if diplomacy fails. When asked, "How far will you go to prevent Iran from becoming a nuclear power?", his answer was, "About 2500 kilometers." That pretty much says it all. The Israelis have already dealt with this situation once ... with a straightforward bombing raid. I see no reason for them to hold back this time, should diplomacy fail.

In fact, the Bush administration must realize that another pre-emptive strike by them would make the ridicule universal. Instead, if Bush can overcome his I'm-the-Decider mania, he would realize that passing a few rewards (read military hardware) to Israel in return for a bombing raid, would solve the problem without additional blemish to his already dirty-grey administration.

You seem to be applying conventional wisdom to Bush, when the question might be; who in the world is Bush trying most to impress.
