Frist on Iran

Speaking at the Missouri GOP's annual Lincoln Days conference, Senate Majority Leader Bill Frist said:
"We cannot allow Iran to become a nuclear nation. We need to use diplomatic sanctions. If that doesn't work, economic sanctions, and if that doesn't work, the potential for military use has to be on the table."

When he was asked whether Congress had the political "will" to use military force against Iran if necessary, he said, "The answer is yes, absolutely."

That's good to hear. I don't buy it, but it's good to hear.

By the time they use diplomatic sanctions for a while (which won't work), and then economic sanctions for a while (which also won't work), there won't be much need for the military response, because Iran will have obliterated Israel.

They're close to having their nukes, they're defiant, and they're determined to destroy Israel. They'll keep on making their weapons as long as we dither with diplomacy.

We don't have time for dithering.
