It’s not like the U.S. military or our economy is stretched to the hilt already. It’s not like we are fighting conflicts in Iraq, Afghanistan, and now Pakistan. During the 2008 and presidential Republican debates, canidates called for nuclear war on Iran. As dubious as this sounds it has been repeated several times.
Only one thing comes from nuclear war: Mutual Assured Destruction. If you nuke someone, someone will nuke you back. Neoconservative Kristol had this to say:
“I think we have to have a credible threat of force and the preparation to use force against Iran. It would be much better if we used force against — to delay the Iranian nuclear program than if Israel did and there is no evidence that the US government is being at all serious about the use force there,” Kristol told Fox News’ Chris Wallace Sunday.
