Gates calls Iran 'hell bent' on getting nuclear arms

Defense Secretary Robert Gates said he believes Iran is "hell bent" on acquiring nuclear weapons, but he warned in strong terms of the consequences of going to war over that. "Another war in the Middle East is the last thing we need and, in fact, I believe it would be disastrous on a number of levels," he said in a speech he was delivering Monday evening at the U.S. Military Academy at West Point, N.Y.
"But we won't let disaster stop us. Let's start the war before the elections in November. That way we'll have our war no matter who wins. In the end we will win - at least the stockholders and investors in Blackwater, Halliburton, GE..."

Okay you caught me. He really didn't say it, but I am sure he was thinking it.
