“All Options Are On The Table”

During an interview on Israeli television Bush warned that “all options are on the table” if Iran refuses to comply with international demands to halt their nuclear program. Bush went on to say that “The use of force is the last option for any president” and that “it is difficult for the commander in chief to put kids in harm’s way. Nevertheless I have been willing to do so as a last resort in order to secure the country and to provide the opportunity for people to live in free societies.” German Chancellor Gerhard Schroeder criticized Bush’s comments, saying, “Let’s take the military option off the table. We have seen it doesn’t work.”
