  1. I like this one better

    They don't leave any wiggle room. Its not thinking somebody else should do something. This is about doing something themselves. And that something is full on nuclear genocide, literally the worst thing you could ever do.

    Again we twiddle our fingers when we should be blasting Iran into the stone age. Hit every military installati­on they have. Make Pearl Harbor look like a school yard fight. We need to do it now when we have the upper hand. Take out military installati­ons, oil fields, nuclear sites, and their top leaders in one big swoop. "

    Notice when it was posted. I didn't have to go around looking for horrible posts. It was right at the top. There are many more like it. If you can find a single equivalent, that is somedody calling for a nuclear attack on Israel, I would be amazed.

  2. leach234 didn’t explicitly call for a nuclear attack on Iran?

    For more than 40 years the US has maintained an aggressive military policy towards Iranian expansion. The only thing the US hasn’t done on leach’s list is assassinate “top leaders”.

    Read up on some history.
    The Carter Doctrine
    “Let our position be absolutely clear: An attempt by any outside force to gain control of the Persian Gulf region will be regarded as an assault on the vital interests of the United States of America, and such an assault will be repelled by any means necessary, including military force.”

  3. Actually, first Anonymous, you helped me make my point. You see if you had actually read the "horrible comment" that you copied you would find that the user made it clear that he wanted Iran disarmed and disabled. Hence the references to taking out oil fields and military installations. The only questionable section was when he said we should kill their "top leaders" but even that is part of standard military procedure.

    In contrast, the comment that earned this post makes it clear that the goal is the destruction of Israel, period. And, I see, it remains undeleted. So thanks for your contribution, inane though it is.

Hey guys we've started to employ a slight comment policy. We used to have completely open comments but then people abused it. So our comment policy is such: No obvious trolling or spamming. And be warned: unlike the Huffington Post we actually enforce our comment policy.
