That's not a straw man argument! It's a legitimate comparison that you are too afraid to answer.
If you lived in Israel, would you be cool with Iran building bombs that they want to use on you?

Yea, but I don't live there....

They don't worry about me & my drought & I don't worry about them or their problems.... Nor do I worry about the Irish, Greeks or the Germans either..

I'm kinda libertarian like that..

White House Played Role in Iran Deal Letter Signed by Former Flag Officers

So it was all coordinated propaganda led by the White House...
Refuse to sign the.letter and say goodbye to any consulting with the.DoD or lobbying the Federal government. Naw that would never happen.

I have a feeling that your border only extends to your front door, being a Libertarian and all.

Well I wouldn't go to Congress and try to bullsh-t my way into goading them into another Mideast war with a drawing of an Acme brand cartoon bomb.

What does this have to do with the price of tea in China?

If Jim Boehner had done something similar opposing the Iran deal, would that invalidate the opinions of the involved generals / admirals?

Is there any evidence that the involved generals / admirals do NOT support what they signed?


Your article admits that there were generals / admirals who refused to sign the letter.
Do you have evidence they were lined up against the wall and shot?


Gee. I wonder if the "Swift Boat Veterans" had anybody in politics contact them about their campaign?
Nah. That's Repubs doing it so it's different...

Well that's great, I'm glad your not arming our enemies. Maybe we can give them the cartoon bombs, it may scare them.
