Bush is trying diplomacy. The ultimate question is how far should we be willing to go to stop the Iranians from getting nukes. Diplomacy? Economic sanctions? Covert sabatoge? Air strikes? Invasion? Nuclear attack? If the Russians and Chinese are unwilling to support sanctions, we aren't left with many options. And we might not have any good options.
Taking pot shots in the media is hardly diplomacy in my book. I'm talking about making them a partner in the process. Of course I'd do that with AQ at least behind the scenes. Its what the British ended up doing with the IRA and we will have to do in the end with Hamas and AQ if we want to end strife on a long term basis.
