President Bush says now is not the time to take pressure off Iran. Bush says Tehran is still dangerous despite new intelligence conclusions that it stopped work on a nuclear bomb four years ago.

He says the report is a warning signal that Iran could regear the program any time. But in its own reaction to the new report, Iran says it welcomes the U.S. decision to "correct'' its view.

The new U.S intelligence report says Iran's nuclear weapons program was halted because of international pressure in 2003. It's a sharp turnaround from a 2005 report that stated was Iran was continuing its weapons development program.

In October, President Bush alluded to "World War III'' when talking about the importance of preventing Iran from getting a nuclear weapon.
