Huckabee hungers for action against Iran

Posted By on Mon, Mar 5, 2012 at 10:20 AM

The guns of March. Mike Huckabee joins the Republican cadre seemingly anxious to flex some military muscle against Iran. Writing for USA Today, the Huckster said:

Military action should be a last resort, but diplomacy can work only if the threat of military action is genuine and the Iranian mullahs believe it. For that reason, President Obama can allow no daylight between the U.S. and Israel. When Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu visits the White House today, President Obama should publicly make it clear that Israel has every right to protect itself against the Iranian threat. He should further boldly state that the U.S. will take military action on its own if necessary to prevent Iran from obtaining a nuclear weapon.

The window of opportunity for diplomacy is closing. Seventy years after the Holocaust, the U.S. cannot turn a blind eye to Iran, which is the focus of evil in the modern world. We must act soon or face the withering verdict of history.

If Iraq took nine years to "pacify" — plus 4,500 American lives, 100,000 Iraqi lives and about $800 billion — Iran shouldn't take more than twice that.
