Congressman Supports Use of Nuclear Weapons Against Iran 


In a statement on C-Span, Republican congressman Duncan Hunter of California said that if the U.S. had to hit Iran, "you donít do it with boots on the ground, you do it with tactical nuclear devices." This remark goes a step further than those made by GOP donor Sheldon Adelson in October, who said that a nuclear device should be detonated in the desert of Iran to send a warning. Hunter said that his opinion is formed by his own service spent in the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan.

Hunterís statement had no lack of opponents. Kingston Reif of the Center for Arms Control and Non-Proliferation responded, "The first use of nuclear weapons against Iran would guarantee a mad Iranian dash to acquire nuclear weapons to deter future such US attacks."

Ben Armbruster, "Congressman Says U.S. Should Use Nuclear Weapons if it Attacks Iran," ThinkProgress, December 4, 2013.
Hope deferred maketh the heart sick: but when the desire cometh, it is a tree of life. Pr. 13:12
