NOT ON HIS WATCH:

Bolton: Bush won't tolerate nuclear Iran (Herb Keinon, Jan. 23, 2006, THE JERUSALEM POST)

US President George W. Bush will not accept a nuclear Iran, John Bolton, the US ambassador to the United Nations, said Monday.

Bolton, speaking from New York via video hook-up to the Interdisciplinary Center's Herzliya Conference, said that Bush was determined to pursue the issue through peaceful and diplomatic means, "but has made clear that a nuclear Iran is not acceptable."

According to Bolton, Bush worries that a nuclear-equipped Iran under its current leadership could well engage in a nuclear holocaust, "and that is just not something he is going to accept."

Key phrase is: "under its current leadership"

Nuclear Persia is less scary than a nuke Pakland. Nuclear Islamic Republic is not acceptable.
