What if Congress Unanimously Voted to Nuke Iran?
Let me just say this about that:
Ordering a nuclear strike,anywhere, is a real good way to die!
What if Congress Unanimously Voted to Nuke Iran?:
What is going on in America today is equivalent to the following fictitious news story:
Jan. 31, 2007: By unanimous vote, the two Houses of Congress passed today a joint 'sense of Congress' resolution directing President Bush to 'launch nuclear strikes against any non-nuclear-weapon state that undertakes military programs or operations that threaten US interests or those of allies and friends'.
The passage of the joint resolution followed a series of appropriation bills enacted by Congress to fund the development, building and deployment of nuclear earth penetrators (so-called 'bunker busters') of a wide range of yields, with the ability to destroy targets of adversary non-nuclear nations that are 'able to withstand non-nuclear attack', particularly UGF's ('underground facilities for military purposes').
The text of the resolution emphasizes the importance ascribed by Congress to launch strikes as soon as possible, to 'demonstrate US intent and capability to use nuclear weapons to deter adversary use of WMD'.
