Frist lines up hard Right on Iran, Security

KCTV5 - Frist says military action a posssibility against Iran: "The United States has long advocated Security Council action against Iran, including possible political and economic sanctions, which have not yet occurred.

Asked whether Congress had the political will to use military force against Iran if necessary, First said: 'The answer is yes, absolutely.'

'We cannot allow Iran to become a nuclear nation,' Frist told reporters at the Missouri GOP's annual Lincoln Days conference. 'We need to use diplomatic sanctions. If that doesn't work, economic sanctions, and if that doesn't work, the potential for military use has to be on the table.'

Frist also defended a program in President Bush's administration that allowed the government to eavesdrop, without warrants, on international calls and e-mails in the United States that were believed to be terrorist-related."

Glad Bush has the backing of the congress, at least in the Republican side of things.
