GOP Candidates Compete

The 2016 election is now in full swing….the candidate pool is diminishing and the rhetoric is heating up……

I have been watching and listening to the GOP candidates when they talk about what they would do to defend the US homeland……I understand the concern over the possibilities of some sort of uncoordinated attacks here and there…..but some of the rhetoric sounds a lot like some sort of crime….

You know of which I speak….especially from the so-called front runners…..statements like “make the sand glow”….”carpet bomb the Hell out of them”……even some more talk about extremes in torture….

Before someone tries to debate me on torture let me say what I always say…..”Try it…then we will talk”….until then you have nothing to say…..

The Republican candidates have seemingly been competing with one another over who would commit the gravest war crimes if elected. In recent months, one candidate or another has promised to waterboard, do a “helluva lot worse than waterboarding,” repopulate Guantánamo, engage in wars of aggressionkill families of suspected terrorists, and “carpet bomb” Middle Eastern countries until we find out if “sand can glow in the dark.”

I know we Americans think we are above the law when we are “defending” ourselves…..but going to extremes is not defending in my opinion……

  1. In 1945 we discovered that concrete can glow in the dark and nobody considered that to be extreme because it ended a war that would have gone on to destroy millions more lives than it had already destroyed. The flight of The Enola Gay might have seemed extreme to some during that time but I will bet it was the recipients of the payload who considered it to be extreme and not those who pushed the button to deliver it.

    1. That is a good idea…let’s nuke everybody that does not meet with our approval…..there is very little evidence that the war would have gone on much longer…..the island was starving and the industries had been destroyed….just wait them out….but that would not have served the purpose the bomb was intended….

      1. The bomb did what the bomb was intended to do and I am sure the bleeding hearts would have wanted to feed the starving millions and keep their warlike spirit nourished so they could keep on fighting… The bomb did what the bomb was supposed to do.
