President Bush refused on Tuesday to rule out nuclear strikes against Iran if diplomacy fails to curb the Islamic Republic's atomic ambitions.The gooder news, that many of my Whiney Liberal Friends were once whining at me about, is that they can now accept living in a Nation where the WarLord is willing to engage in Nuclear Weapon Threatening of other nations.
Iran, which says its nuclear program is purely peaceful, told world powers it would pursue atomic technology, whatever they decided at a meeting held in Moscow on Tuesday.
That meeting ended without any substantial results, a source close to the negotiations told Interfax late on Tuesday.

So why not use Our Nuclear Dominance to shore up the value of the dollar!!! Or help countries understand that they really do want to buy American Treasuries!!! Why they might even find it useful to help us in the WhateverOnWhomever so that we do not demonstrate to the world our Willingness to Nuke First and Ask Questions when we run out of other things to do...
