A threat eight years away

By Creature

Today president Bush gave a speech in support of his European missile defense system. His rationale for the missile shield: Iran and its quest for the bomb. However, while the administration and their surrogates are out and about touting immediate action against Iran, due to an imminent threat, the president managed to undermine all such arguments with a time-line admission inserted into today's speech.

In his speech here, Bush said intelligence estimates show that Iran could have the capability to strike the United States and many European allies by 2015.

2015. Eight years from now. Please explain to me how this threat is imminent. How can they justify an attack today? From this point forward, when imminence is argued, 2015, their date, not ours, must be thrown back at them.

Their imminence argument is now dead.

  • Creature,

    Your thinking is so pre-9/11.

    It's very simple: concurrent to the development of a nuclear weapon, Iran has secretly started development of a time machine.

    It is widely believed (and in fact, we have source documents procured from the Italian secret police) that Iran will finish developing this time machine in 2015.

    At that point, they will send back a nuke at us, along with frikkin' sharks mounted with frikkin' laser beams.

    Why do you hate America so????

  • I have no excuse. I am part of the blame America first crowd.

    Great comment, Carl.
