Bush assumes Iran threat is over energy

-

Reuters: President George W. Bush said on Friday he assumed Iran’s threat to impose pain and suffering on the United States was related to the U.S. need for imported energy resources. WASHINGTON (Reuters) – President George W. Bush said on Friday he assumed Iran’s threat to impose pain and suffering on the United States was related to the U.S. need for imported energy resources.

Iran warned the United States on Wednesday it could inflict “harm and pain” to match whatever punishment Washington persuaded the U.N. Security Council to dole out for Tehran’s refusal to give up atomic research.

“When I’m sitting around the Oval Office talking about national security matters and, somebody says ‘did you see what the Iranians said about consequences?’ — really what they’re talking about I guess is energy,” Bush told a newspaper group.

“For national security purposes we have got to become… not addicted to oil,” Bush said.
