Bush rattles sabre at Iran.

I think I'm getting deja vu. This all sounds very familiar:

US President George W Bush says he still has not ruled out the option of using force against Iran, after it resumed work on its nuclear programme.

He said he was working on a diplomatic solution, but was sceptical that one could be found.

The UN's atomic watchdog has called on Iran to halt nuclear fuel development.

Iran, which denies it is secretly trying to develop nuclear arms, restarted work at its uranium conversion plant at Isfahan on Monday.

"All options are on the table," said Mr Bush, when asked about the possible use of force during an interview for Israeli TV.

"The use of force is the last option for any president. You know we have used force in the recent past to secure our country," he said.

Despite claims by Scott Ritter (the dissenting UN weapons inspector over Iraq) who suggested that Iran would be attacked in June, it looks as though the neo-cons have decided to wait a little bit longer. Probably not a bad idea, seeing as Iraq is still causing the US army a slight problem. Maybe we'll end up going through the whole charade of the UN security council again, ending with another dose of shock and awe on a Islamic country. Maybe the Israelis'll go it alone again, similar to how they did on Saddam's nuclear reactor in the early 80s. Whatever happens, it's another step closer to all of us becoming obsolete.
