It’s Only Cool When We Nuke You

Vice President Joe Biden has taken it upon himself to approve the go ahead of an Israeli nuclear strike on Iran, stating “If the Netanyahu Government decides to take a course of action different than the one being pursued now, that is their sovereign right to do that.” He went on to add that the US would not stand in their way. Of course, Israeli officials have welcomed these comments.

Does anyone else see the hypocrisy in this? Nuke Iran for having nukes. Why can’t Israel nuke itself for having nukes? Why Iran and not North Korea? They’ve been actually using theirs aggressively, obviously in some sort of warning or threat to the Western nations they oppose.

How can a nuclear strike ever be a solution to this problem? Yes, Iran is in a volatile state of unrest, civillians revolting against a corrupt government who believe they are acting on the behalf of the Islamic world and lashing out against foreign interference. But nuking Iran would not change the way things are run, or who is in charge. It would kill thousands of innocent people and exacerbate the feeling of hatred against the US & Israel, possibly extended to the rest of the Western world.

As former chair of the Foreign Relations Committee, Biden must know this. ‘Relations’ implies relationship, no? A diplomatic dialogue. The only dialogue here is once again between Israel and the US on behalf of the world, without consulting anyone! I can see how Israel would love to see a war against Iran (which would surely be the outcome once the dust has settled), they are their most fierce opponent at present.

If they want a war so badly, why not invade Zimbabwe or do something about Darfur? Or even China? It seems horribly unfair to allow Israel to nuke Iran, when Israel won’t even agree to Obama (and the rest of the world’s) request that a two party state be established for the people of Palestine. I mean, aren’t they committing the same crime? Oppression of the people and so forth.

This is an unacceptable and inappropriate attitude to have as a Vice President, especially with the current political climate. I can’t get past the idea of nukes being fine in Israel or the US, but when it comes to anyone else, its all over. Blah!

    And they wonder why the middle east feel the way they do about the west?

    Should not the “leaders of the free world” be applauding the Iranian people for standing up to an ujust and corrupt rule of oppression?

    Seems to me that the US has asked for years for the middle east to throw off the shackles of this sort of tyrrany, and when it finally begins to happen, they thinkits fine for the prodigal child (Israel) to blow them up?

    Just what has this to do with Israel in the first place, really? Go back to invading Lebanon, Israel. Have your “worlds best army” shown up by a bunch of backyard hacks again. Or why not just cage up a few more Palestinians? Or has that all become a bit to passe and boring for you? Need a new challenge? Try sudoku. FFS.

    Yeah, ‘sovereignty’ sucks balls. The concept just gives others flimsy excuses to ignore what’s going on around them. Kind of reminds me of domestic abuse on a smaller scale, but I guess that’s getting a little off topic.

    Sometimes I like to think that there’s another race out in space that’s so much more superior to ours, that they’re laughing because we still use violence in order to “solve” problems.

    Epskee – Well said! Israel have been (teamed with America) the bullies in the middle east for about 60years of interference, its about time some true “diplomacy” and peace talks were had. We can’t stand by while this kind of sentiment is expressed as a valid option on a world stage.

    Marty – I get ur association, as in what happens behind closed doors doesn’t affect us, so keep our noses out kind of thing. Why was Iraq’s sovereignty never left alone in that case! And what of Iran’s sovereignty..

    Wendy – Its about time those guys started giving us a hand, we’re clearly just making a mess of things =/

  5. Rayedish Says:

    Yeah, and its only cool when our friends have nukes. When our enemies have them we call them the ‘axis of evil’.

  6. Domino Says:

    What if instead they get rid of nuclear weapons. Then no one would have them!

  7. LuLi Says:

    Rayedish – A charming loophole, huh?

    Domino – Only in a perfect world 😛
