In the fantasy world occupied by far-left Democrats, employing some nuance with the maniacs in Iran means letting them have nukes and later sweet-talking them into not using them. The way the left looks at the world is “well, we’ve got nukes, so who are we to say they can’t” too?
This woman is dangerously incompetent.
Hawkish Republicans opened fire on Democratic U.S. Senate candidate Elizabeth Warren yesterday, after the Harvard Law professor called for a “nuanced” response to Iran’s purported nuclear weapons program.
“It is both perplexing and extremely troubling that on the same week a report indicated Iran is moving closer toward obtaining nuclear weapons, Elizabeth Warren would call for a ‘nuanced’ approach toward this growing threat,” said Nate Little, executive director of the Massachusetts Republican Party, just one of several conservatives to draw a line in the sand over Warren’s televised remarks.
“What is needed right now is not nuance, but a clear, consistent and unmistakable message from the United States that a nuclear-armed Iran is unacceptable and won’t be tolerated,” Little added in a Mass GOP statement.
On WCVB’s “On The Record” program broadcast yesterday, Warren called the International Atomic Energy Agency’s report last week on Iranian nuclear weapons development “about as serious as it gets,” noting a potential for a “dangerous” regime to destabilize the region. She praised President Obama’s “nuanced response,” with “no chest-thumping … that could backfire.”
Later yesterday, after addressing campaign volunteers at the Reggie Lewis Center in Roxbury, Warren defended her position from the GOP attack.
“The president is using every tool at his disposal, and working on this regionally is entirely appropriate,” Warren told the Herald. “We should support him in his efforts.”
U.S. Sen. Scott Brown, whom Warren is expected to face next November as the Democratic front-runner, issued a thinly veined rebuke of Warren without mentioning her by name yesterday, saying there is no room for ambiguity in dealings with Iran.
“If Iran obtains nuclear weapons, it would add a frightening new dimension to their campaign to export terrorism around the region and the world, threaten America and fulfill its promise to wipe Israel off the map. With the stakes so high, the United States simply cannot afford any misinterpretation of our policy toward Iran,” Brown said in a statement. “The leadership of the Iranian regime must know that their pursuit of nuclear weapons is unacceptable and will not be tolerated by the United States.”
