“Go ahead, make my day”: Sheldon Adelson on how to deal with Iran
25 October, 2013Casino mogul Sheldon Adelson says that the Obama administration’s negotiations with Iran will lead to nothing, arguing that the best negotiating tactics would be to launch a preemptive nuclear strike on unpopulated areas in Iran – accompanied by a threat to wipe out the entire population of Tehran if Iran refused to give up its nuclear program. Echoing Clint Eastwood, Adelson said that following the nuclear explosion in the desert, Obama should tell the Iranians: “You want to be wiped out? Go ahead and take a tough position and continue with your nuclear development.”
Nearly fifty years ago, in 1964, Barry Goldwater, running as the Republican candidate against President Lyndon Johnson in the elections, startled audiences by what was regarded at the time as loose talk about nuclear weapons. He suggested, for example, that the United States could resolve many of the problems it was facing around the world by “[Lobbing] one into the men’s room at the Kremlin.”
Tuesday night, in a public forum titled “Will Jews Exist?” at Yeshiva University in New York, Casino billionaire and GOP mega-donor Sheldon Adelson said, in response to a question from the audience, that the best negotiating tactic with Iran would be launch a nuclear missile at the country and threaten to wipe out the entire population of Tehran....
Much more plain talk from Adelson here.
