Bush Targets Iran in Speech, Implies Military Action
Newsmax | January 11, 2007
Though President Bush's national address Wednesday night was about Iraq, his most provocative comments focused on her neighbor, Iran.
Early in his speech Bush raised the matter of Iran, suggesting that if U.S. efforts to secure Iraq failed, "Iran would be emboldened in its pursuit of nuclear weapons."
Bush blamed both Syria and Iran in helping radical insurgents within Iraq.
"These two regimes are allowing terrorists and insurgents to use their territory to move in and out of Iraq," he said.
He then singled out Iran, adding that she "is providing material support for attacks on American troops."
Bush made an implied military threat against both nations: "We will disrupt the attacks on our forces. We will interrupt the flow of support from Iran and Syria. And we will seek out and destroy the networks providing advanced weaponry and training to our enemies in Iraq."
The President continued in this vein, suggesting a larger U.S. goal of stopping Iran's nuclear program:
"We are also taking other steps to bolster the security of Iraq and protect American interests in the Middle East. I recently ordered the deployment of an additional carrier strike group to the region. We will expand intelligence sharing — and deploy Patriot air defense systems to reassure our friends and allies.
We will work with the governments of Turkey and Iraq to help them resolve problems along their border. And we will work with others to prevent Iran from gaining nuclear weapons and dominating the region."
