Rice: Bush Won't Give Up Military Option

In an interview with Al Arabyia television yesterday, Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice said, "The American president will not abandon the military option and I believe that we do not want him to do." She also added that Bush is "committed to the diplomatic option. If the world remained strong, there would be a chance for the success of the diplomatic option."

"I say to the Iranians ... there are two options -- isolation and dialogue," she said. "The international community has made its demands through the United Nations; Iran should stop nuclear enrichment, after that there would be a change in the U.S. policy that has been going on for 27 years and then I can talk to them about any issue."
