Condoleezza Rice calls for US to bring down Iranian government

Former US Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice has called on the US to do everything in its power to bring down the Iranian government. Speaking on ABC, Rice also said that the imminent withdrawal of US troops from Iraq could make it harder for the US to deal with Iran.

The International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) is expected to release a report this week warning that Iran is getting closer than ever to creating a viable nuclear bomb. That report is likely to prompt renewed calls from some in the US for American troops to prepare for a military confrontation with Iran.

Rice’s comments are in stark contrast to the suggestion by Ron Paul, earlier in the day, that the US should take a more diplomatic approach to the Iranian problem. Paul has generally called for the US to refrain from interventionist foreign wars wherever possible, whereas many in Washington seem to see war as a viable foreign policy.

  1. WOW WWIII here we come. The USSR had 30000 nukes all pointed at the USA and we didn’t bomb them or go to war with them. We talked to them, and worked a way out of it. Now someone gets close to 1 nuke and it is mayhem. What is wrong with this picture? It sounds like the WMD’s in Iraq…A BIG LIE. Iran knows if they fire a nuke their country will be removed from the face of the earth. NO WAR STOP THIS! CALL YOUR CONGRESSMEN AND TELL THEM ENOUGH IS ENOUGH…WE CANNOT AFFORD IT ANYWAYS. Let some other country deal with it!

  2. What will gasoline cost if these maniacs attack Iran? The warpigs in Washington and their controllers should all be on the front lines.
