Trudy Rubin: On the brink of a blunder in Iran?
Friday, October 26, 2007
US Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice singled out Iran Wednesday as "perhaps the single greatest challenge" to US security but stressed that diplomacy was the preferred way to end its nuclear drive. President George W. Bush last week warned that a nuclear-armed Iran meant the threat of "World War III," and Vice President Dick Cheney on Sunday spoke of "serious consequences" unless the Islamic Republic gives in. It is written, 'Thou shalt not kill' and 'Thou shalt not bear false witness.' The leaders of America are doing both, and most of them know this. It is also written, "Thou shalt not covet thy neighbor's house or anything that is thy neighbor's," or as concerning this war, "thy neighbor's oil" which the leaders of America also have their eyes upon. Of course, they know they have to be careful about this, so that there is not such an outcry from other nations. In their greed and lust for more power and control of the oil, they have perpetrated war.
