Biden Urges Different Course With Iran

Senator Joe Biden (D-Delaware) has come out and urged the Bush Administration to participate in the EU talks with Iran. Bush has taken a harder stance on Iran than the EU, and has refused to rule out any type of military action. The problem this stance creates is that it does not leave many options on the table. With the military overextended and most likely unable to deploy in Iran and with the limited amount of intelligence available, it seems that the government is persuing an aggressive course of action without having the military might to uphold it. Biden, the ranking Democrat on the U.S. Senate Foreign Relations Committee, has expressed concern about Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice's talk regarding Iran. He believes it leaves very few options available, and it is impeding the EU effort.

At the end of this piece you have this..."it leaves very few options available, and it is impeding the EU effort."

Yet earlier it says..."Bush....has refused to rule out any type of action."

It would seem to me this would indicate the President is leaving every possible course of action open rather than only leaving a few options available.
