It has has now become the accepted approach by all Republican candidates for president to display a verbal toughness to any and all evil forces in the world. Mike Huckabee promised that Iran would never get an atomic bomb and he is ready to do something about that future event. His words of defiance, promise of military action, are simply what each and every person seeking the presidency as a Republican is promising the American people. This is one group of really tough warriors who are ready to dispatch Americans into dangerous combat at the drop of a hat. As I recall, a few years ago there was a Republican president who was gung ho for war and destruction. Remember how he stood on an aircraft carrier with the announcement: MISSION ACCOMPLISHED!
Not a single one of these Republicans has ever tested the horror of war. Rick Perry did serve in the military but never got close to anyone firing back at him. Yes, Mike, you are one tough dude. However, if you desire to bomb Iran, the people doing the bombing will not be named, Mike Huckabee. Some will die but you will be the one who talks about war and death. It is time for Republicans to send their own children into harm’s way before sending other young people to their deaths.
The main issue today is: Jaw, Jaw, Not War, War!
