Adelson: US should drop atomic bomb on Iran
Jerusalem Post ^ | 10/24/2013 14:58 | MAYA SHWAYDER

Posted on 10/26/2013 9:50:58 PM PDT by MeshugeMikey

ORK – During a panel at Yeshiva University on Tuesday evening, Sheldon Adelson, noted businessman and owner of the newspaper Israel Hayom, suggested that the US should use nuclear weapons on Iran to impose its demands from a position of strength.

Asked by moderator Rabbi Shmuley Boteach whether the US should negotiate with Iran if it were to cease its uranium enrichment program, Adelson retorted, “What are we going to negotiate about?”

Adelson then imagined what might happen if an American official were to call up an Iranian official, say “watch this,” and subsequently drop a nuclear bomb in the middle of the Iranian desert.

"Then you say, ‘See! The next one is in the middle of Tehran. So, we mean business. You want to be wiped out? Go ahead and take a tough position and continue with your nuclear development. You want to be peaceful? Just reverse it all,

Didn’t Obama say we could absorb a blow?

Which sounds like he thinks we can take one without fighting back.

That's my first thought.

Though I'd use Medina and then Mecca as the demonstration sites.

Obama would drop the bomb on New York before dropping one on Iran.

I had forgotten about the EARLIER Obama Outrages, but now that youve refreshed my memory Yes I do believe he did suggest we absorb a nuclear attack.

sadly that was never mentioned during this last election cycle.

Yes he did if I recall right....I have zip confidence he would lift a single finger....but he’d put his face in a camera and say everything his idiotic followers would swallow...and they would too!

Obama isn’t about America or her safety....he’s about himself and the crap World Governance/ Universal Citizen mumbo jumbo....and so isn’t his administration and his retarded followers.

I’ve often wondered when he’s finished not doing his job.....if he won’t move to another country altogether? Otherwise we’ll be paying an enormous amount for his secret service protection even after he leaves. I hope he does leave...

What, pray tell, would be the point in nuking Detroit? Would anyone notice the difference?

When we dropped the bombs on Japan, we were already involved in a long and bloody war. Loss of life was heavy on both sides. We were winning but to finish the job we would have had to invade Japan. More people, both Japanese and Allied would have died, too.

The Japanese were not ready to surrender.

It is much better to minimize our own loss of people and also the enemy’s loss, if victory can be achieved.

Therefore, to end the war and to keep the loss of people lower than it would have been had we invaded, we dropped the bombs on Japan.

It was drastic. It worked.

I don’t see the same scenario currently with Iran.

"Obama would nuke Las Vegas before he’d nuke Iran."

Since Dingy is from Nev., I'd guess that Bammy would nuke Tex. (Cruz) first.

Yes, he said something to that effect.

I’m afraid we’re going to see it happen.

They finished a new super bunker under the White House recently. Obama would take Reggie down there and ride it out.

Obama is as evil as anyone who has ever lived on this planet.

I read it earlier on today....but wasn’t surprised...not sure I put a lot of stake in the one who stated it though as currently there’s much propaganda going on over there. Israel does very well in that respect.

Bottom line is Israel will do whatever she chooses with or without support from ANY nation. More than likely eventually target their nuke sites no matter how many they are....

It won't be the same scenario, the long bloody war could follow the nuke strikes by Israel against detestable enemies. The world, to "save face", will strike out at Israel in retaliation.
