Foreign Policy GOP WTF?!

Unhinged Lindsey Graham Demands Gaza Be Bombed The Way Hiroshima Was In WWII

An enraged Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) said today during an appearance on NBC’s “Meet the Press” that Israel should bomb Gaza into oblivion the way the United States did the city of Hiroshima in World War II with a nuclear weapon.

Graham was asked by host Kristin Welker, “I guess the question is, why does Israel need the most massive bombs that can potentially level an entire block in order to wage this war? Why can’t it be more precise?”

The senator replied, “Why did we drop two bombs, nuclear bombs on Hiroshima and Nagasaki to end a war that we couldn’t afford to lose? You don’t understand, apparently, what Israel is facing.”

“So when we were faced with destruction as a nation after Pearl Harbor, fighting the Germans and the Japanese, we decided to end the war by bombing Hiroshima and Nagasaki with nuclear weapons,” he continued. “That was the right decision. Give Israel the bombs they need to end the war they can’t afford to lose and work with them to minimize casualties.”

Welker noted “that there has been so much technology since those bombs were dropped that for that very reason, that is why Israel and other developed countries can be more precise.”

She also reminded Graham that former President Ronald Reagan had also withheld weapons from Israel.

“Did President Reagan show that using U.S. military aid as leverage can actually be an effective way to rein in and impact Israel’s policy?”

The question enraged Graham.

“This is the worst decision in the history of the U.S.-Israel relationship to deny weapons at a time the Jewish state could be destroyed. Can I say this? Why is it okay for America to not to to drop two nuclear bombs on Hiroshima and Nagasaki to end their existential threat war?”

“I thought it was OK. So, Israel, do whatever you have to do to survive as a Jewish state!” he ranted. “These military officials that you’re talking about are full of crap!”

Let’s all be thankful that Lindsey Graham will never be president of the United States. The crazy son of a bitch would have us in World War III within a week of taking office.
