Iran will kill your children

You know, I used to like Rudy Giuliani. But this guy sets up to be even worse than GWBush. If he is elected president, you will likely see us invade Iran. Why? Because Iran has nuclear weapons.

Rudy had this to say in the debate the other night in response to the question of whether we should consider the use of nuclear weapons against Iran:
I think it could be done with conventional weapons, but you can't rule out anything and you shouldn't take any option off the table.

And during the debate the other night, the Democrats seemed to be back in the 1990s. They don't seem to have gotten beyond the Cold War. Iran is a threat, a nuclear threat, not just because they can deliver a nuclear warhead with missiles. They're a nuclear threat because they are the biggest state sponsor of terrorism and they can hand nuclear materials to terrorists.
Ummm, hello? I'm not sure what universe Rudy Giuliani is living in, but IRAN DOES NOT HAVE NUCLEAR WEAPONS. They are in the early stages of enriching uranium. Which is a hell of a long way from having the ability to make a nuclear bomb. And the missile technology to "deliver a nuclear warhead"? You've got to be fucking kidding me. Even the Chinese don't have that yet.

To foist this lie on the public -- that Iran already has nuclear capability -- is waaay beyond the pale. You thought GWBush and his crew were dishonest in making the case for war against Iraq? This kind of outright lying is far beyond anything they did. Heaven help us if this bloodthirsty fuckhead is elected.

I've said it before, I'll say it again: Rudy needs something to do. When his hands are idle, he goes rifling through cabinets he shouldn't ought to.

He's not a complete fucking idiot, so I still think we'd be better off with him than with the Current Occupant, but that's really a comparison of two evils; god help us from having to suffer either one of them.
