Representative Duncan Hunter (R-CA) doesn’t think war with Iran is a good idea, he’s just sayin’ that, if we do go to war, we should go all-in.
HUNTER: “I think a ground war in Iran with American boots on the ground would be a horrible thing and I think people like to toss around the fact that we have to stop them in some way from gaining this nuclear capability. I don’t think it’s inevitable but I think if you have to hit Iran, you don’t put boots on the ground, you do it with tactical nuclear devices and you set them back a decade or two or three. I think that’s the way to do it with a massive aerial bombardment campaign.”
Bomb them back to the stone-age! USA USA!
Aside from the obvious fact that Duncan Hunter is a sociopath with little to no regard for human life, this is also a very bad time to float a fantasy like this.
We’re trying to persuade Iran to drop a weapons program while Duncan Hunter shares his dream of dropping nuclear bombs on Iran. Hunter may have just handed a PR victory to hardliners in Iran.
