Deeds, not words

From The Washington Post:

WASHINGTON - President Bush said on Friday he was aware of "speculation" that Iran has started enriching uranium in a second network of centrifuges and said it was unacceptable for Tehran to have a nuclear weapon.

"It says to me that we must double our effort to work with the international community to persuade the Iranians that there is only isolation from the world if they continue working forward on such a program," Bush told reporters during a meeting with NATO Secretary General Jaap de Hoop Scheffer.

Sorry Mr. President but as long as they are sitting on a ocean of oil they will not be "isolated" from France or Germany. And as long as they have euros from Old Europe they will not be "isolated" from Russia.

We are going to have to do more than "say" that we don't want them to have nuclear weapons. We are going to have to DO something about it. Either that or shut up and accept it.
