Peres Says U.S. Has No Choice but to Save the World by Stopping Iran

Haaretz reported on Israeli President Shimon Peres' interview with Israel Radio. The article stated:

The United States has no choice but to save the world by stopping Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad.

The New York Times ran a story on Russia's refusal to meet on Iran's nuclear program. The sands on the diplomacy timer may have run out.

The irony is a greed hungover Wall Street has the country and world's attention, instead of the intended United Nations play, orchestrated toward a violent intervention on a recalcitrant Iran. British Prime Minister Gordon Brown meets with George Bush tomorrow. Iran is topic #2 on the list, according to Dana Perino in today's White House press briefing.

While Peres called for action, Israeli right wingers tried to silence the country's peaceful opposition. The terrorists set off a pipe bomb at the home of a leading Peace Now leader. The target was lightly wounded.

Most Americans are shell shocked from the series of financial bombs leveled on our economy. How will we react when the real armaments start falling? I fear it may not be far off...
