Too Little, Too Late On Iran?

J-Pod thinks Bush has turned a corner:

GEORGE W. Bush just delivered what may be the most important speech of his presidency since he went before the United Nations on Sept. 12, 2002, and declared his intention to seek regime change in Iraq.
The time has come, the president all but said yesterday, to take the gloves off with Iran.

"The world's free nations will not allow Iran to develop a nuclear weapon," he said flatly. He prefaced those words by saying that efforts were being made to find a diplomatic solution to the problem. Nonetheless, Bush has now said in the strongest sentence he has yet spoken on the matter that Iran will not go nuclear. He is unconditional about it.

I'll believe it when I see it. Dubya has not engaged Syria or Iran aggressively despite their continued proxy war against us in Iraq.

Still, this should serve as a contraindication to my hypothesis that the reason for Bush Administration inaction is that Iran already has a deployable nuclear weapon. I cannot imagine the President making such an unequivocal statement if he had intelligence pointing the other way.

I'll be delighted to be proven wrong on this one.

Stanley Kurtz tells us why we cannot tolerate the mullahs' getting the bomb.
