And you hippies thought you were voting for peace, justice, and free mortgages! A source from team Obama has stated that the U.S. would nuke Iran if Israel gets hit. From Haaretz:
U.S. President-elect Barack Obama's administration will offer Israel a "nuclear umbrella" against the threat of a nuclear attack by Iran, a well-placed American source said earlier this week. The source, who is close to the new administration, said the U.S. will declare that an attack on Israel by Tehran would result in a devastating U.S. nuclear response against Iran.
This is not 1964 and you can't just go around saying this or that city is getting nuked to get votes and throw dirt in the eye of the commies. Obama is borrowing this foreign policy from Camp Hillary and it's just not a black-and-white issue. What if some Hezbollah thugs sneak a nuke into Jerusulem (god forbid), does that mean millions of Persians need to die for no reason? Besides, the close Russia-Iran ties means they might just get in on the action bringing about the Obacalypse sooner than expected, as ICBMs light up the sky like fireworks on Chinese New Year.
As Allahpundit notes, mutually assured destruction might not be that effective on Iran in the first place.
