Dan Burton: the speaker pro tempore: the gentleman is recognized. mr. burton: madam speaker, it's the end of the week, another week has gone by and the middle east continues to be a tinder box waiting to explode. abraham lincoln said let the people know the facts and the country will be saved.

Dan Burton

0:16:06 to 0:16:26( Edit History Discussion )

Dan Burton: it's hard for us to get the facts sometimes. the president of the united states, mr. obama, this week, had a summit that was supposed to deal with nuclear proliferation and had leaders from all over the world there and were talking about how to stop the proliferation of nuclear weapons from getting into countries that may cause a

Dan Burton

0:16:27 to 0:16:47( Edit History Discussion )

Dan Burton: problem and weapons that may get into terrorists' hands that may destroy an awful lot of the human race, but he didn't talk about iran. itlmost never happens anymore. he doesn't talk about iran. they say there are going to b sanctions put on iran that is going to stop them from developing their nuclear weapons program, but the

Dan Burton

0:16:48 to 0:17:10( Edit History Discussion )

Dan Burton: sanctions never take place. we have been talking about sanctions i know now for at least five or six years and iran just keeps thumbing their nose at the rest of the word, united nations, united states and everybody and continue to build a nuclear weapons program. they say they're not, but they are. and i think everybody in the world knows it.

Dan Burton

0:17:11 to 0:17:31( Edit History Discussion )

Dan Burton: now, this week, the head of the iranian nuclear commission, i think that's the title he has, said that the bashir nuclear power plant will be operational in a couple of months, the production of nuclear material within a couple of months. and our military leaders say that iran could have a nuclear

Dan Burton

0:17:32 to 0:17:54( Edit History Discussion )

Dan Burton: weapon in as little as one year and some people say a lot quicker than that. instead of doing something about it, we continue to fool around talking about putting sanctions on them week after week, month after month, year afterear and they continue to build a nuclear weapons program. and when the head of israel

Dan Burton

0:17:55 to 0:18:15( Edit History Discussion )

Dan Burton: comes here, mr. netanyahu, the prime minister, the president gives him the cold shoulder and starts telling him if he doesn't do certain things we won't be supporting them as we should be. and i think that's terrible. our only real strong ally in the middle east that has been with us through thick and thin is israel and we should be supporting them right now and

Dan Burton

0:18:16 to 0:18:37( Edit History Discussion )

Dan Burton: doing everything we can to keep the middle east from going up in smoke because if iran gets a nuclear weapon, there's no question in my mind that they'll use it if they'll get an opportunity, because mr. ahmadinejad, the president of iran, continues to say he wants as his number one objective to wipe off the face of the earth.

Dan Burton

0:18:38 to 0:18:58( Edit History Discussion )

Dan Burton: and if i know mr. netanyahu, he's not going to let that happen. because we are fooling around, we're still dealing with the possibility of a major conflict over there. how does that affect the middle east? israel is in jeopardy. but if iran gets nuclear weapons and don't do something about it, all those countries

Dan Burton

0:18:59 to 0:19:20( Edit History Discussion )

Dan Burton: around there are going to be intimidated and start moving towards radical islam. that's my view. and we can't allow that to happen. we can't allow that whole area to go down that road. in addition to that, we get about 30% of our energy from the middle east. and if that happens, we're going to have trouble getting the oil we need to keep our

Dan Burton

0:19:21 to 0:19:42( Edit History Discussion )

Dan Burton: lights on, to keep the gasoline in our cars and all the other things we do with energy. so i would just would like to say instead of holding these conferences if i were talking to the president, i would say quit fooling around. get with the program. let ahmadinejad and the iranians know we aren't gng

Dan Burton

0:19:43 to 0:20:03( Edit History Discussion )

Dan Burton: to stand by and let them become a nuclear power with nuclear weapons. if they continue down that path, we along with israel, will do whatever is necessary to stop them. they need to know that. as long as we are talking and pushing papers around and talking about sanctions, they aren't going to stop. they are only going to stop when they know we mean

Dan Burton
