Duncan Hunter compares Iraq to WWII

In his zeal to support of the troop surge, Duncan Hunter tries to link congressional oversight of Iraq to a hypothetical situation where the the Invasion of Normandy could have been undermined by congressional debate. Of course, this debate never happened because, unlike Iraq, the US had actually declared war on Nazi Germany, and of course that war had popular support. The United States spent less time fighting Japan and Germany than we have occupying and destroying Iraq.

If anyone has a moment to give Duncan a history lesson, here is his contact info:

Duncan Hunter on Iran

"You know, right now, right now, Iran is moving equipment into Iraq that is being used to kill Americans. Iran has crossed the line, and the United States has absolute license at this point to take whatever actions are necessary to stop those deadly instruments from being moved across the line, being used in explosives, roadside bombs, inside Iraq.

And lastly, you know, we don't - we should not get to the edge of the cliff on this enrichment of uranium.

And plutonium to be used for a nuclear weapon in Iran - the United States needs to move very quickly..."

Duncan Hunter on Iran

"With two conditions, and I think that you do have a dialogue with everybody, whether they’re adversaries or friends. The two conditions are: number one, they are moving deadly equipment across the border that is killing Americans in Iraq. We have license to utilize anything that we want to use — special operations, intelligence, whatever it takes — to stop that deadly equipment from moving across the border and hitting Americans in Iraq, and we don’t give that up with these talks.

Secondly, they’ve got about a thousand centrifuges now working, enriching the materials that can make at some point a nuclear device. The United States reserves the right to preempt, and we may have to preempt that nuclear weapons program. We cannot allow them to have a nuclear device.

With those two caveats, talk to your enemies...

I would authorize the use of tactical nuclear weapons if there was no other way to preempt those particular centrifuges. When the Osirak reactor that was hit `86, when the six F-18s came over the horizon and knocked that out, they didn’t need anything but conventional weapons. Probably it’s going to take a little more than that. I don’t think it’s going to take tactical nukes."
