"Some" Like It Hot
Defense Secretary Gates on Iran over the weekend:
"The general view of American intelligence is that they would be in a position to develop a nuclear device probably sometime in the period 2010-2011 or 2014 or 15," he said, adding that some think it could be as early as late next year.We have a pretty good idea of who "some" are, don't we? And we know what's on the U.S. electoral calendar for "late next year." But rogues and desperados aside, the status quo remains: based on what we know right now (yes, that can change) there can be no justifiable use of military force against Iran during the remainder of Bush's presidency.
