Speculation rages: is Iran Bush's next target?

President Bush says he isnt looking for a fight, but the question wont go away: Is the United States headed for war with Irans Islamic rulers? Increasing tensions with Iran over its nuclear program and actions in Iraq have fueled speculation that Bush may be paving the way for military action. With U.S. forces tied down in Iraq and Afghanistan, no one expects a ground invasion, but analysts at both ends of the political spectrum put little stock in Bushs insistence that hes focused only on diplomacy.
