Bush Threatens to Nuke Iraq and Other Nations

This is why I love the guy.


WASHINGTON (Dec. 11) - In a new defense strategy submitted to Congress on Wednesday, President Bush warned Iraq and other hostile countries that the United States is prepared to use "overwhelming force'' - including nuclear weapons - in response to any chemical or biological attack.

The threat was contained in a White House document called the ``National Strategy to Combat Weapons of Mass Destruction.'' Presidential spokesman Scott McClellan said it was prepared as a response to the ``unrelenting effort by hostile states and terrorists to acquire and be able to use weapons of mass destruction.''

The six-page strategy outline underscores long-standing policy that the United States ``reserves the right to respond with overwhelming force - including through resort to all of our options - to the use of WMD (weapons of mass destruction) against the United States, our forces abroad and friends and allies.''

That passage intends to threaten U.S. nuclear retaliation as a deterrent to hostile governments, said senior administration officials who briefed journalists about the document Tuesday.

In rare agreement with the White House, former Vice President Al Gore embraced his rival's strategy. ``As presented, Al Gore feels this is in keeping with America's long-held strategy of using our own weapons of mass destruction principally to dissuade any aggressor from using their WMD arsenal against us,'' said spokesman Alejandro Cabrera.

Administration officials emphasized that the strategy, developed jointly by national security adviser Condoleezza Rice and homeland security adviser Tom Ridge, is an overall statement of the Bush administration's overarching principles. Its timing, however, coincides with other muscle-flexing by President Bush designed to show Iraqi President Saddam Hussein that the United States is serious about seeing him disarmed.

Also on Tuesday, Bush used a private White House meeting with Turkish political leader Recep Tayyip Erdogan to press for permission for U.S. troops to use Turkish bases, arguing that such a display of solidarity could persuade Saddam to give up his weapons peacefully.

The White House document gathers into one comprehensive whole several doctrines for prevention, deterrence and defense that Bush has enunciated since taking office, including a commitment to boost programs aimed at containing the damage of any chemical, biological, radiological or nuclear attack.

The strategy said some unspecified states that support terrorists already have weapons of mass destruction and seek even more ``as tools of coercion and intimidation.''

``For them, these are not weapons of last resort, but militarily useful weapons of choice intended to overcome our nation's advantages in conventional forces and to deter us from responding to aggression against our friends,'' the document said.

``We must accord the highest priority to the protection of the United States, our forces and our friends and allies'' from weapons of mass destruction, it continued.

The broadly worded strategy does not speak with any specificity to the priorities it asserts, nor does it assign them any budget numbers. Instead, those details were contained in classified directives, described as ``substantial taskings,'' issued to relevant federal departments a couple of months ago, officials said.

The strategy's priorities will be reflected in the new budget Bush submits to Congress in February.

Bush Rocks, LOL.  Everyonce in a while he probably pulls out the big red button to tease everybody with it.

sorry trauma but i dont find anything funny about this

this is pure unadulterated sabbre rattling on Bushes part as CharlieBrownUK has mentioned

First of all, no nation in the world will attack the US with WMD

Second, no terrorist will attack the US with WMD simply because no nation will supply it to them

WHY? because they already know the consequences

so what exactly is the purpose of all this? there is none
people like c walker will applaud this move, because it equates to bullying and thats what americas job should be according to these right wingers

Now, an interesting note is Americas willingness to use WMD to help allies....allies of course meaning primarily Israel....and to a lesser extent Taiwan, South Korea, Japan

This means one thing

America and its allies are in the supreme position of power in this world...any attempt by a nation to properly defend itself will be repulsed.

Now lets take a look at the current situation in the middle east

Israel has the 3rd biggest stockpile of WMD in the world
If Iran seeks to make ONE nuclear weapon as a deterent to Israels overwhelming nuclear superiority, then they will be destroyed...very easily..all the administration has to do is make up some reason and the gullible media and brainwashed citizenry will accept such reasoning
(ex. Iraq)

This is pure maintainence of their global military monopoly
nothing more

dont turn this on me detective!

i poured my heart and soul into that post! damn it i could take that and write an A paper around the post! that was a history lesson, a pulitzer prize winning post right there!!!

on a more serious note...i got a sense of humour, but you cant be throwing jokes around, the timing of a joke is just as important as the content of the joke itself

we're having a serious discussion and then all of a sudden
WHAM! A big fat joke comes my way...i wasnt prepared for that..next time...give ample warning

Props to brother Tech about the point he made about Iran and Isreal.  That was real.


And if you want to talk about the Bible let's talk about the Bible for a second. Let me remind you that Jesus was a poor man.  He ran with the essenes, they were poor and against the government.  The government persecuted Jesus.  So often times the people who are persecuted by the government and mass media are the most righteous.  For example, Malcolm X in his day.

tech you're arguement was that it is unfair for the United States to US WMD against any country that builds WMD.  This was not what the article stated.  Your arguement against the US in this post was over an issue that does not exist.  The US will use WMD against any country that FIRST uses WMD against the US or its Allies.  

I am actually for this statement by the US government since it deters the use of WMD.  We are not simply going around picking and choosing who we blow up.  They must make the first move.  Lately it seems that pure reason is not enough to deter other countries from making rational decisions.  All Bush is doing is influencing them to make the right decision for themself.
