CRAWFORD, Texas (Reuters) - German Chancellor Angela Merkel told U.S. President George W. Bush on Saturday she would be willing to support a third round of U.N. sanctions against Iran if Tehran continues to resist demands to halt sensitive nuclear work.

Merkel, in a visit to Bush's ranch in Crawford, Texas, also said she would be willing to look at possible reductions on her country's commercial ties with Iran should other efforts fail to secure cooperation from Tehran over its nuclear program.

Now as you read the story think about this. Iran is still 8 years or more away from nuclear weapons.

Also N. Korea just blew off a nuke under ground a few months ago. The also launched a test missile that made Alaska.

So shouldn't there be more focus on N. Korea than Iran?? Tell me again how the war in the Middle East isn't about controlling oil.
"He told me there was new intel on Iran.
He just didn't tell me what it was."
