I was watching CNN's coverage of the US government cabinet meeting and afterwards Bush gave the answers to the reporters' questions and he came up with the following:
Q: Thank you, Mr. President. The talks between Iran and the EU3 appear to be making little progress. A senior British official there said that they detect nothing new in their approach. What can be done now?
THE PRESIDENT: Well, obviously, one option is for the Perm 5 to work together to bring Iran to the U.N. Security Council. That's an option. And we're going to continue to work with our friends and allies to present a united front to the Iranians. And the message is: Give up your nuclear weapons ambitions. And the good news is most of the world recognizes that Iran, being the non-transparent society that it is, a government that had violated IAEA rules, is one that cannot be trusted with technology that could enable it to develop a nuclear weapon. And so we're united in our goal to keep the Iranians from having a weapon, and we're working on the tactics necessary to continue putting a united front out.
The other thing is that we want the people of Iran to be able to live in a free society. And so tomorrow night, I am going to talk about this issue and make clear the policy of the United States.
So I really do hope that he does some thing in his 2nd term to deal with the Iranian regime and help us liberate our country the way we wish.
That is a good thing to hear this morning and I am looking forward to the State of the Union address tomorrow night.
