Shimon Perez: Israel / World quickly approaching military option on Iran

Out of the frying pans of Iraq and Afghanistan, the troops may simply be redirected into the fires of Iran on news that the world may be approaching a “military option” because of their persistent nuclear ambitions. Shimon Perez said today that the nations of the world made commitments to Israel and they must now make good on those commitments to prevent Iran from acquiring nuclear weapons capability. Of course, geopolitics being what it is, Iran is backed up by several powerful nations including Russia and China, and this latest sword-rattling from Israel may only serve to incite violence. Perhaps even begin World War 3, or arguably 4.

A Sound Bite So Good, the President Wishes He Had Said It

By Dana Milbank

The mystery of the missing trifecta has been solved. Sort of.

In this space last week, it was noted that President Bush often tells audiences that he promised during the 2000 presidential campaign that he would allow the federal budget to go into deficit in times of war, recession or national emergency, but he never imagined he would “have a trifecta.” Nobody inside or outside the White House, however, had been able to produce evidence that Bush actually said this during the campaign.

Now comes information that the three caveats were uttered before the 2000 campaign — by Bush’s Democratic opponent, Vice President Al Gore. The Post’s Glenn Kessler found in the archives this promise from Gore: “Barring an economic reversal, a national emergency, or a foreign crisis, we should balance the budget this year, next year, and every year.” Gore said that to the Economic Club of Detroit in May 1998, then repeated it at least twice more, in speeches in June and November of that year.

There is still no trace of Bush making such a caveat; in fact, shortly after taking office, he declared that “we can proceed with tax relief without fear of budget deficits, even if the economy softens.” On the other hand, Bush can fairly argue that his top economic adviser, Lawrence B. Lindsey, endorsed the caveats during the campaign. When Kessler asked back then about Gore’s three exceptions, Lindsey said the same caveats would apply for Bush.
