Uber-RIch Israeli (Technically he's an American but his loyalties seem to be to Israel), Sheldon Adelson, is calling on the USA to do Israel's dirty work and drop a nuclear bomb on Iran to get it to stop building their nuclear bombs. Adelson owns the Israeli newspaper Hayom and is noted enough in the country that he was invited to speak at Yeshiva University.

Look dude ... if you want a nuke dropped on Iran then ask your own country to do it. (yes yes, he's technically an American ... but again .. his loyalties seem to be with Israel) Don't drag us into it. Tell Israel to deal with it on it's own. We have our own problems to deal with and we don't need to be dragged into yet another massively expensive war all to 'help' another country with their issues.

Oh ... and Mr. Adelson, you are a moron. If you think that the USA dropping a nuke into the Iranian desert as a 'warning shot' won't set off a MASSIVE world war, then you are a complete idiot. I don't know how you got to be a leading businessman and I don't know how you managed to earn your fortune .... but YIKES! you are stupid.

Adelson: US should drop atomic bomb on Iran

During a panel at Yeshiva University on Tuesday evening, Sheldon Adelson, noted businessman and owner of the newspaper Israel Hayom, suggested that the US should use nuclear weapons on Iran to impose its demands from a position of strength.

Asked by moderator Rabbi Shmuley Boteach whether the US should negotiate with Iran if it were to cease its uranium enrichment program, Adelson retorted, “What are we going to negotiate about?” Adelson then imagined what might happen if an American official were to call up an Iranian official, say “watch this,” and subsequently drop a nuclear bomb in the middle of the Iranian desert.

"Then you say, ‘See! The next one is in the middle of Tehran. So, we mean business. You want to be wiped out? Go ahead and take a tough position and continue with your nuclear development. You want to be peaceful? Just reverse it all, and we will guarantee you that you can have a nuclear power plant for electricity purposes, energy purposes’," Adelson said.

Israel has some nukes the US gave them why don't they nuke Iran, its because theyre worried what the retaliation will be against them so the alternative is to get the US to do it.

Information on Sheldon Adelson

Sheldon Gary Adelson (pronounced /ˈædəlsən/; born August 4, 1933) is an American business magnate. He is the chairman and chief executive officer of the Las Vegas Sands Corporation, the parent company of Venetian Macao Limited which operates The Venetian Resort Hotel Casino and the Sands Expo and Convention Center. He also owns the Israeli daily newspaper Israel HaYom. As of October 2013, Adelson was listed as the 12th richest person in the world with an estimated net worth of $34.4 billion. Previously, he was listed in the Forbes 400 as the 12th wealthiest American. Adelson, a life-long donor and philanthropist to a variety of causes, founded with his wife's initiative the Adelson Foundation.

More 'words of wisdom' (insert eye roll here) from Adelson ....

In February 2012, Adelson told Forbes magazine that he is "against very wealthy ­people attempting to or influencing elections. But as long as it's doable I'm going to do it. Because I know that guys like Soros have been doing it for years, if not decades. And they stay below the radar by creating a network of corporations to funnel their money. I have my own philosophy and I'm not ashamed of it. I gave the money because there is no other legal way to do it. I don't want to go through ten different corporations to hide my name. I'm proud of what I do and I'm not looking to escape recognition."
