Nuke Iran?

I was shocked to read that all except one of the Republican candidates vying for the White House in 2008 wouldn’t rule out nuking Iran. The only brave one to oppose such an attack was Rep. Ron Paul of Texas.

If one looks at the damage that this administration has caused on US institutions and the country’s reputation abroad, we should be extremely worried if one of these Republican candidates makes it to the White House next year. Their prickly statements show that we can expect worse than George W Bush if one of these men – except possibly for Rep. Paul – wins the 2008 presidential elections.

It’s tragic that such politicians who should know better haven’t learned from the perilous mistakes made in Iraq. Some of them were kids when the US made history and became the first country to use an atom bomb against another nation. The first atom bomb was dropped August 6, 1945 over Hiroshima and three days later over the city of Nagasaki.

The most incredulous matter about these Republican contenders is how freely they talk about upholding Christian values while on the other hand they wouldn’t hesitate to kill tens/hundreds of thousands of people with nuclear weapons.

They appear more like the Christians of the Dark Ages, who did nothing more “Christian” than murder, pillage, imprison and instill mayhem.
