President Bush claims the NIE report on Iran confirms the country is still a danger and that military options must remain on the table.
The US National Intelligence Estimate (NIE) released on Monday suggests there is no justification for Washington's bellicose rhetoric against Tehran as no 'evidence' has been found that indicates Iran's nuclear program may be aimed at acquiring nuclear weapons.
In a Tuesday news conference, however, President Bush said not only has the National Intelligence Estimate not influenced his policies toward Tehran, but it has also raised the alarm.
"Iran was dangerous, Iran is dangerous, and Iran will be dangerous if they have the knowledge necessary to make a nuclear weapon," the US president said.
When he was reminded about US' wrong intelligence on Iraq's so-called weapons of mass destruction, President Bush reaffirmed that he was sure Iran would be 'a danger to the world'.
President Bush also claimed Iran's nuclear program has not been 'transparent'.
"I understand the issues, I clearly see the problems, and I want to use the NIE to continue to rally the international community for the sake of peace," Bush concluded.
US President George W. Bush claims that 'God is his final advisor'. He is one of the modern world's biggest advocates of war, having frequently warned the international community of World War III and the apocalypse.
This is while analysts believe Bush is influenced by the Zionist lobby and neoconservatives and that his hawkish stance toward the international community has its roots in such influence.
