An update from the party of non-interventionism

Here are some thoughts from Deep Foreign Policy Thinker Lindsey Graham:

Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) offered a baffling comparison of Israel’s war on Gaza to the U.S. decision to drop atomic bombs on Japan during World War II, telling Israel to “do whatever you have to do” to finish the military campaign.

Speaking to NBC’s Kristin Welker on Meet the Press Sunday morning, Graham made the argument that Israel would be justified in slaughtering civilians in Gaza by likening the situation to the U.S.’s war with Japan eight decades ago. He suggested Israel would be right to flatten the Gaza strip—home to 2.2 million Palestinians, half of whom are children—simply because the U.S. did it to Hiroshima and Nagasaki in the 1940s.

“So when we were faced with destruction as a nation after Pearl Harbor, fighting the Germans and the Japanese, we decided to end the war by bombing Hiroshima, Nagasaki, with nuclear weapons,” Graham began.

The senator continued to call the bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki “the right decision” by the U.S. That decision ended the war with Japan, but killed hundreds of thousands of Japanese civilians between the initial blasts and the deadly radiation that followed.

The idea that Israel has not been nearly brutal enough is Trump and therefore Republican Party dogma, although to the best of my knowledge Trump has not directly made allusions to Nagasaki.

Don’t worry though, his proposed policy is actually very moderate:

“Give Israel the bombs they need to end the war they can’t afford to lose, and work with them to minimize casualties,” Graham insisted.

“Given them the ability to bomb indiscriminately, but in a way that minimizes casualties.” Oh well then, sorry for confusing you with a bloodthirsty maniac! Shoot, a fella’ could have a pretty good weekend in Vegas with all that stuff.
