USA: Bush defends world war comments

Click here: Gulf News – Bush defends world war comments

US President George W. Bush defended his recent comments suggesting Iran’s nuclear ambitions might trigger World War Three and insisted he wanted a diplomatic solution. Bush told a news conference last month that preventing Iran from building nuclear weapons would be a means of avoiding a new global conflict.

“The reason I said that is because this is a country that has defied the IAEA -in other words, didn’t disclose all their programme – have said they want to destroy Israel,” Bush said in the interview with German broadcaster RTL.

“If you want to see World War Three, you know, a way to do that is to attack Israel with a nuclear weapon,” Bush added. “And so I said, now is the time to move. It wasn’t a prediction, nor a desire.”

…”And so I owe it to the American people to say that I’ve tried to solve this problem diplomatically. And that’s exactly what I intend to do. And I believe we can do it, so long as the world works in concert.”
