We want Iranian nukes wiped out as much as Israel does.

I'm fairly confident the above is false. Israel wants Iran's nukes wiped out much more than we do. Our very survival as a country is not riding on whether Iran develops a nuke or two. Israel's is.

I think that Israel should say that if any nuke goes off even close to Israel, they will nuke Mecca. Sure it'd piss off a bunch of muslims, but would they be willing to risk their holy site on it?

Nukes in the middle east are all smoke and mirrors. There is little chance that any nation would ever use nukes because of the fear of retaliation. Oh wait, the Isralis are the only ones with nukes so they can do whateve rthe [censored] they want. The region would stabilze more if the balance of power was evened out.

>>It is why he hopes for an European solution<<

Um, yeah. Like the Europeans "solved" the genocide in the Balkans during the 90's.

We're not holding our breath waiting for the Europeans to "solve" this dilemna.

I think he is, actually. Not that I am claiming that they will solve it, but as I wrote Bush would not like to get into a mess on this issue now. Of course, if he would get intelligence that they were very close to a bomb, he would still act.

"remember that other islamic nations aren't a fan of their dominant sect- sunni(right?)"

No; Shi'ism is dominant in Iran.
