Bombing Bushehr

Jude Wanniski explains some the urgency of the Bolton nomination as well as some of the geopolitical background.

From the NYT:

"Republicans are hoping to shame Democrats into a quick vote on Mr. Bolton. They argue that he needs to be in place by June so that the United States will have the latitude it needs to press its concerns about Iran's suspected nuclear weapons program before the Security Council."

And Wanniski comments:

Why the big rush? My reliable sources tell me it is because there is a timetable that makes it urgent for Bolton to be ready for action in June in order to cripple the Nuclear Nonproliferation Treaty (NPT) as part of the plan to bomb the Iranian nuclear power plant at Bushehr. That's because Bushehr, under construction with Russian supervision, will soon be ready to receive the Russian fissionable material enabling it to produce power.

Barbara Boxer's attempts to delay the nomination should be applauded. Also note that this article agrees with the statements made by Scott Ritter.
