Do you think the Middle-East should be nuked?

You can't be serious having this as a question, surely? a quick hash of points against:

 

- Define 'Middle East'

- Presumably the hundreds of thousands of sub-continentals working in Saudi Arabia etc are written off along with 'Middle Easterners' <sic>

- Who's supposed to conduct this atrocity?

- What happens after it's been nuked? Resettlement? Or will the magical Middle-Eastern badness cause settlers to become troublesome?

- If it's the people rather than the place what about the millions of 'Middle Easterners' living and working elsewhere.

You're either with us or with the terrorists wals. Which is it eh? EH?

 

I'm for the side not committed to murdering hundreds of millions of innocent civilians. If that's neither then I shall drink myself to death forthwith.

You should work for a non-regulated company.

No, Israel isn't a rogue state (those would be the likes of North Korea and Iran), and its human rights record is only about as shady as America's: shady, but not ethnic cleansing territory.

 

Well, it's a question of definition. I'm aware that Israel is not currently considered a rogue state by the UN, the reason why I chose the term "rogue state" was Israel's history of nuclear weapons proliferation plus its unwillingness to abide by international law and sign treaties concerning humanitarian issues. The two latter does Israel share with USA. USA is far better than Israel on human rights, however. It would be an insult to put the US on the same level as Israel in that matter.

 

The sad reality in Israel would create laughable examples if you tried to compare it with the US somehow. For example, the European colonizers stole land from the Indians, but today, you won't find roads marked "No Indians" (where Indian drivers will get their cars confiscated...), Indians are not walled up in ghettoes, Indians are allowed to travel in cars registered in the US without specific permits, and unarmed children will not be shot to death for protesting against any of these things. I don't really know that much about USA's human rights record, but Israel's is definitely the pitchest black.

If we want both Iran and Israel go glow, just let Iran develop its nukes and then wait. They will take each other out without us spending any resources.

Kill two birds with one stone.

 

Let them do the dirty work for you, why get your hands dirty when someone else will do it for you? LOLZ

Exactly. Hey, it worked for Lyndon Johnson!

then we can give the land over to super-intelligent cyborg horses that can wear monocles and smoke pipes.

...and I find it rather tasteless wanting to kill a bunch of people you don't know, based on ethnicity or just the misfortune of being born in a troubled geographic region...
