Nuke Iran to prevent a nuclear war?

General Boykin was on a local Charlottesville, Virginia radio show leading the charge toward war with Iran. He criticized president Obama for his diplomatic approach. The push for prompt military action in support of Israel was central to his message.

1. Please visit this link and go to the end of the broadcast with General William Boykin where you will hear Jack Rabbit, the last caller ask the General about the use of nukes against Iran. Pay careful attention to the General's answer: Charlottesville, Virginia Rob Schilling Show - go to the episode link with General Boykin - DATE 8-18-10

2. Now please read the article from which the following excerpt was snipped: Gwynne Dyer: U.S. vs. Iran would be nukes or nothing

" When Adm. Mike Mullen, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, was asked recently on NBC's "Meet The Press" whether the United States has a military plan for an attack on Iran, he replied simply: "We do."
General staffs are supposed to plan for even the most unlikely future contingencies. Right down to the 1930s, for example, the United States maintained and annually updated plans for the invasion of Canada. But what the planning process will have revealed, in this case, is that there is no way for the U.S. to win a non-nuclear war with Iran.

One must wonder how General Boykin can be so oblivious to information even armchair generals have at their fingertips. Or is he really? If he is aware of the need for nukes we have a problem with telling the "whole truth" do we not General?

Perhaps the General is telling the truth when claiming ignorance of the need for nukes - but that brings up questions of his competence - or his agenda. Is he really really really giving us good advice? Or is he setting us up for yet another endless foolish war of aggression?

Here's a video from UN inspector Scott Ritter that you may wish to take into consideration when you hear we need to attack Iran:

War is really a failure of diplomacy. Starting war to prevent war - does it really make sense? Using nukes to prevent a nuclear war - does it make sense?

It is time to stop the madness.

Remove the warmongers.
