Jimmy Carter: U.S. Shouldn’t Bomb Iran Even If They Get a Nuclear Weapon
Mediaite ^ | April 9, 2014 | Matt Wilstein

Posted on 04/10/2014 12:20:48 AM PDT by 2ndDivisionVet

Chris Matthews for an interview on Hardball Wednesday and made some news by saying he does not think the United States should bomb Iran even if they were to succeed in building an operational nuclear weapon. This statement differs not only from recent comments made by former Vice President Dick Cheney but also from the stated position of President Barack Obama.

“I never have felt that Israel had a capability militarily to go 1,200 miles or more and bomb Iran effectively and then return back to Israel,” said of Cheney’s suggestion that Israel could attack Iran unilaterally. “The only country on earth that has that capability would be the United States, and I don’t believe it’s appropriate for the United States to bomb Iran over this issue.”

When Matthews asked him if that position would apply even if Iran was in possession of a nuclear weapon, Carter replied, “Well, you know, if they got one nuclear weapon, Israel has, what, 300 or more, nobody knows exactly how many. And I know that every Iranian realizes that if they should try to use a nuclear weapon, Iran would be wiped off the face of the earth, which I think is so ridiculous, a self-destructive decision that they would not do it.”(continued)

Did anybody check his birth certificate to see if he is a citizen. It seems possible that Obama may not have been the first fraudulent president.

From the mouth that called the Ayatollah Khomeini a “holy man”. Pity that Reagan didn’t charge him with treason.

Jimmy doesn’t think the American Revolution was necessary either.

Were I a rich man, I would build a ‘wonder of the world’ museum filled with the history of liberal stupidity...As a warning. If only so that future generations could look back and remember a time that a political philosophy worked to destroy civilization and had the backing of half a thoroughly insane population.

And we should all listen to his wise words, given the former President’s successful track record on Iran.

I guess airborne refueling, by Israeli or US tankers, is beyond Carter’s mental capacity to understand.

Sure. Like they did not have the capability to reach Entebbe, or Osirak, Syria's reactor, Hezbollah weapons shipments from Syria.................

In all honesty I look at Idiocracy exactly like I do 1984 and Brave New World. Documentaries.

Every bit of those works is mirrored in modern society. The Surveillance state and thoughtcrime. Embryos with three or more parents/designer kids. The parallels between global warming hysteria and the belief that Brawndo makes plants grow.

Liberals looked at pretty much every work of dystopia and said “You know, this is a really good idea.”

Getting advice from Jimmy Carter on Iran is like getting advice from Michael Lohan on parenting

Jimmy Carter’s track record on Iran policy disqualifies him from advising anyone else.

If Iran gets nukes Jimmy Carter should be strapped to an ICBM launched on Tehran.
