Yes, and as we speak Vice President Cheney is preparing to leave for a trip to the region, which I think has among another purposes to prepare to lay the groundwork for possible the US military action against Iran. He has said on many occasions that the US may well need to use military force to eliminate the threat posed by Iran to the safety of the region, to the strategic threat pose by Iran to the safety of the region and language very similar to the language President Carter used in his Carter Doctrine speech of January 23rd 1980 that this is a vital interest of United States to keep the flow of oil flowing, Vice President Cheney has used very similar language.
