EXCLUSIVE: US Representative Tom Tancredo in Response to U.S. Nuke Threat: We Could Nuke Mecca
540 WFLA Orlando, FL ^ | July 15, 2005 | Pat Campbell-AM 540 WFLA

Exclusive: US Representative Tom Tancredo in Response to U.S. Nuke Threat: We Could Nuke Mecca

15 July 2005: He is a no-nonsense House Representative from Colorado, a staunch critic of the federal government's lax immigration and border enforcement policies, and one who recognizes the clear and present threat posed by Islamic terrorists inside the United States. In an exclusive interview today with Pat Campbell, host of AM 540 WFLA said yesterday he would request a briefing from the Justice Department on information it has on plans revealed by WND this week for a nuclear attack on the U.S. by al-Qaeda. Responding to a question by Mr. Campbell about our possible response to such a threat, Representative Tancredo said that there are things that could be done to pre-empt a threat, and in response to an attack as well. One response would be to take out one of their holy cities with a nuclear bomb if it was clearly proven Islamic terrorists were behind such an attack.

Through the courtesy of AM 540 WFLA and Mr. Patrick Campbell, the Northeast Intelligence Network is offering the audio excerpt from this interview. Click on the link below to download the MP3 audio and listen from your computer. The Northeast Intelligence Network applauds Representative Tancredo for all of his anti-terrorism efforts to keep our country safe. We also applaud Mr. Campbell for asking the tough but necessary questions - AND getting the answers.

Here is the quote from Tancredo!    "What if you said, if something like this happened in the United States, (and it was the result of extremist Muslims) then we could take out their Holy Sites!"

Wrong! Tancredo is the kind of American and politician that could save this country from its inability to FIGHT to the DEATH. This kind of statement and mentality is the only way America will survive.

If practitioners of the Religion of Peace did set off a nuclear bomb in the US, thus destroying one of our major cities and killing millions, why shouldn't we then respond in such a way?

If that ever happens, then we would be in a whole other level of nightmare, and a response in kind would be legitimate.

Wow this is an unfortunate statement, if true. There's no strategic benefit to "nuking Mecca". I would rather he said something about overthrowing Iran or the Saudis.

No one will take him seriously after this.

Sounds good to me. Sooner or later we will have to deal with all Muslims as an enemy instead of this PC garbage about how not all Muslims are bad. The bombings in London proved once again that there are no "Moderate" Muslims.

Hahah...I guess if you consider someone who wants the borders shut down a "mental patient", you can lump me into that crowd.

Does "conservatism" involve open borders? LOL If so, count me out

Why? If they set off so much as a dirty bomb in our country, Mecca should be fair game. We know the source of the hatred, and it comes from the mosques. Who do the imams answer to? Mecca.

These Tancredo threads certainly show who the "moderates" are. They're the ones who immediately adopt the liberal tactic of name calling.

I guess the only moderate response would be to try and understand the muslims.

Please keep in mind that I believe that Bush said "All" options are on the table if they use WMD, and he even said again he would not limit our military in it's options to protect our troops and country.

Truman didn't.

We are in a World War against Radical Islam, whether we admit it or not.

Perhaps we survived the Cold War based upon the time-proven deterrence of MAD (Mutually Assured Destruction)

If we are unwilling to target at the same level of collateral damage as the Islamofacists, then they will by default defeat us.

If however President Bush were to come forward, and simply state. "Enough is enough.  We will not tolerate threats against American cities.  If any attack occurs on American soil, our list of targets is as follows.

1.    Nuclear attack of suspected Bin-Laden Hideout.

2.    Next, key cities known to be hot-beds of Islamofacists.

3.    Highly visible targets, of public knowledge. (Holy Sites)

You need to read the koran where dear ol allah itself claims that if mecca was ever destroyed, it would prove islam to be false, ergo, no more islam.

While I do not want anyone/anything nuked, I would love to see mecca destroyed.

July 15,2005 - "After London attack, cleric urges: 'Annihilate infidels' Less than a day after the terrorist bombings in London, the Palestinian Authority's official television channel broadcast a sermon calling for extermination of all non-Muslims. "Annihilate the Infidels and the Polytheists! Your [Allah's] enemies are the enemies of the religion!" said Suleiman Al-Satari in a July 8 broadcast translated by Israel-based Palestinian Media Watch, or PMW. "Allah," the cleric continued, "disperse their gathering and break up their unity, and turn on them, the evil adversities. Allah, count them and kill them to the last one, and don't leave even one."

Wouldn't a better strategy to stop terrorism in its tracks be to ban the importation of oil from any ME country that refuses to clamp down on terrorists or who funds terrorists?

Sure it would be costly, but at least we wouldn't have to kill a bunch of innocents, both in the target country, and everyone downwind (nukes aren't exactly clean).

I'd rather pay higher prices at the pump while encouraging domestic production and let the terrorist-sponsors go back to living in the 12th century financially to match their 12th century philosophy.

"No misquote, you can listen personally."



If that's the case, then he should apologize, and explain that he got carried away. I am 100% in favor of targeting Islamic leaders (whether religious or secular) who foster or condone terrorism, but it is stooping to the level of the terrorists to bomb a holy site (of any religion) as retaliation or to "send a message." If terrorist leaders or their aiders and abettors are hiding out in a holy site, it becomes a tough question, since we can't let them shield themselves with their religion, but bombing the shrine when it doesn't have any terrorists hiding there would be like the British bombing the Catholic shrines of Lourdes or Fatima as retaliation of an IRA bombing.
