Did Obama figure out that Bush was right?

Diplomacy won't work with Iran as Bush claimed all along.

The US is sending in ships and missiles to deal with the heightened threat from Iran.
he deployment comes after Obama's attempts to emphasise diplomacy over confrontation in dealing with Iran – a contrast to the Bush administration's approach – have failed to persuade Tehran to open its nuclear installations to international controls.

  • Obama sent more troops to Afghanistan, the people that we are after did not live in Iran. So Bush WAS wrong! But after coming into office, he couldnt just immediately pull all of them out of IRAN. He got that area as stable as he could now we are in Afghanistan

  • It's probably Bush's fault it won't work. Because you know, he's the reason everyone hates us.

    Hate to tell you this, BUT, Bush never sent troops into Iran. He did send them into Iraq and if you studied the oil for food UN scandal, you MIGHT be able to figure out why we needed to go into Iraq.

    Um, Bush didn't send troops to IRAN. He sent them to Iraq and Afghanistan.

    Obama kept them in both Iraq and Afghanistan, and is now sending troops to IRAN. Please get your geography straight.

  • Correction: sending ships and missles to IRAN.

    Bush WAS right about IRAN. Diplomacy is not an option.
