Reuters: Bush: Iran ‘held hostage’ by clerical elite

President Bush said on Tuesday that Iran was “held hostage” by clerical leaders who repress their people, and urged the world not to allow Tehran to gain nuclear weapons.

In his State of the Union address, Bush also accused Iran of sponsoring terrorists in the Palestinian territories and Lebanon and said, “that must come to an end.”

“The Iranian government is defying the world with its nuclear ambitions — and the nations of the world must not permit the Iranian regime to gain nuclear weapons,” Bush said.

“America will continue to rally the world to confront these threats,” he said.

A rationale for Iran regime change.
