Now we know where Rep. Sam Johnson (R-Texas) thinks the weapons of mass destruction are buried: in Syria, which he said he'd like to nuke to smithereens.
Speaking at a veterans' celebration at Suncreek United Methodist Church in Allen, Texas, on Feb. 19, Johnson told the crowd that he explained his theory to President Bush and Rep. Kay Granger (R-Texas) on the porch of the White House one night.
Johnson said he told the president that night, "Syria is the problem. Syria is where those weapons of mass destruction are, in my view. You know, I can fly an F-15, put two nukes on 'em and I'll make one pass. We won't have to worry about Syria anymore."
The crowd roared with applause.
... If we keep making superhero movies, the rest of the world is going to start seeing America as some kind of infantile fantasyland where reality is whatever we say it is, and all our problems can be solved with violence.

The USA and its allies either need to just stop and ignore the terror and hide, or they need to take off the PC kid gloves and start to get things done. There is no middle road here.

For those crying foul, what do you say about bin Laden's supposed order to Zarqawi to hit targets inside the US? Do all the sanctions you are in favor of for Johnson apply to UBL also? A simple yes or no will do.

I believe Sam Johnson has adopted what I call the Ann Coulter "nuke everything" doctrine. Followed by of course everyone's favorite, converting of the savages to Christianity renaissance period. lol...

Too bad that motto of "nuke ('evil' country here)" seems to be blurted more and more these days... I wonder what kind of warped reality they live in where "nukin' em" solves a conflict...
