Bush: Iran Risking WWIII with Nuke Program

Sounds like war mongering language to me. We've heard it all before. This time around he faces opposition--Russia. Unfortunately, there is still very little debate in the States:
President Bush warned today that Iran would be raising the risk of a “World War III” if it came to possess nuclear weapons.

[...]“If Iran had a nuclear weapon, it’d be a dangerous threat to world peace,” Mr. Bush said. “So I told people that if you’re interested in avoiding World War III, it seems like you ought to be interested in preventing them from having the knowledge necessary to make a nuclear weapon.”

“I take the threat of Iran with a nuclear weapon very seriously,” he said.

The United States has said it is pursuing a diplomatic approach to Iran, including the threat of a new round of United Nations sanctions, but it has refused to rule out military action to halt Iran’s nuclear program.

But in Tehran on Tuesday, Mr. Putin said, “Not only should we reject the use of force, but also the mention of force as a possibility.”
