    Adelson: US should drop atomic bomb on Iran

    American-Jewish billionaire blasts Obama over negotiations with Tehran; says US should show Iran nuclear capabilities.

    NEW YORK – 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.

    “So a tremendous demonstration of American strength?” Boteach clarified. “So that they would get the message?”

    “It’s the only thing they understand,” Adelson said.

    “And do you see the current negotiations as a sign of weakness?” Boteach asked.

    “Absolutely,” Adelson said.

    Adelson, who donated tens of millions of dollars to defeated Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney during the most recent campaign, criticized the Obama administration's willingness to engage the Iranians diplomatically.
    "[It's] the worst negotiating tactic I could ever imagine, my entire life," he said.

    "Because you can’t get anything. He’s not saying to them, Roll back your entire program and show that you’re willing to be peaceful. So, roll it all back… and we’ll roll back the sanctions…. What is that, a game of chicken, who’s going to blink first?"

    In response to Adelson's comments, Boteach said whether the remarks were regarded as serious or an exaggeration to exemplify the extreme measures that the US must take to thwart Iran from acquiring a nuclear weapon, the international community often employs double standards on Israeli issues.

    “When I heard Sheldon make his remark, my initial thought was that his purpose was to goad his more liberal critics into attacking the policy so that their double standards on nuclear threats against Israel could be exposed,” said Rabbi Boteach in a statement.

    “I would hope that those who seem alarmed by Sheldon’s overstatement on the extent to which the United States should go to stop Iran from acquiring a nuclear weapon will at least protest that much more loudly against its actual development,” he added.

    Yes nuke a country for developing nuclear energy and potentially nuclear bombs! It makes perfect sense!
    "I know the urge to arm yourself, because that’s what I did. I was trained in firearms. When I walked to the hospital when my husband was sick, I carried a concealed weapon. I made the determination that if somebody was going to try to take me out I was going to take them with me."

    Diane Feinstein, 1995

    Don't frequent his businesses.

    He owns the vegas sands, the venetian, the pallazo, the sands in PA and some others in Macau and China. After his spending in the 2012 election, I stopped going to his casinos. This is even more reason not to give him your money.

    If there's a nuke dropped in the desert and there's no one around to see it, is it an act of war? Methinks, yes.

    The FAILURE of the United States Government to operate and maintain an
    Honest Money System , which frees the ordinary man from the clutches of the money manipulators, is the single largest contributing factor to the World's current Economic Crisis.

    Since Iran has called for Israel to end its nuclear program, tables at UN have been turned.

    If UN has to police mideast, only practical solution is to declare Mideast a "nuke free zone". Mideasterners should be praying and stuff anyway on those holy lands, leave WMDs proliferation work to Wall Street funding lubricated MIC in US and other places.

    With a little elbow grease, this could make Adelson's money untouchable for politicians. Who wants to be known as the politician hired to start a nuclear war?

    They will still take it. There's always front corporations, bundlers, straw donations...

    How come these billionaires don't use their own money to purchase some nukes off the black market and then nuke iran if they truly are that obssessed about it? I am sure some groups, maybe some ex-soviets or even pakis, would sell some nukes for a good chunk of change.

    I've done the same... I've passed the word out to everyone I know, not to do any business with Adelson's empire. A little factoid, Adelson has so many aircraft under the Sands corp., he could open his own airline. Of course Adelson attempts to hijack the Tea Party ideology with his; funding, operations, and creations of fronts like the TPNN & Patriot Action Network. Beware of the phony front-man like; Scottie Neal Hughes, Darla Dawald, and Rusty Humphries. Phony marketing of the Tea Party which magically and routinely show up on FOX/NEWSCORP/CNN/ shows.

    And all the people who screamed about Ahmadinejad and still attribute his obscure quotes to Iran even after he's out of office (I'm looking at you Hannity) won't have a problem this at all. Hell, they agree with it. Just read some of the comments.

    My question is, how is this any different from someone who wants to "wipe Israel off the map"?

    I'd be totally fine with this, so long as you dropped Adelson from that plane right before you dropped the bomb.

    PreEmptive war is terrorism. Iran makes verbal threats all the time, but sticks and stones...... that just means that part of the world is still 10 and bullying people on the playground.

    It's the United States and Israel who are bullying people.

    Iran sounds like Pakistan.

    Sovereignty is a joke.

    Adelson is a traitor who should be tried for treason, and once convicted, expelled from the United States.

    Same goes for a $#@!load of Congress critters (AKA whores for AIPAC) as well.

    WTF is this? This guy doesn't make any sense in his deduction of what Adelson said or means. The discussion was at familiarly known "the Stern Building on Lexington Avenue, NYC. The audience that came to hear Adelson, which gave an applause when he stated to, "launch a nuke from Nebraska and explode it over Iran".

    Mega-donor Adelson, with access and influence, scores two pro- Israel victories
    These are heady days for casino billionaire and megadonor Sheldon Adelson.
    A passionate and hawkish advocate for Israel with close ties to its prime minister, Benjamin Netanyahu, Adelson was in Jerusalem today for a celebration of the U.S. embassy’s relocation to that city, a longstanding priority for the mogul. Similarly, Adelson had pushed hard for President Donald Trump to pull out of the Iran nuclear deal, which happened last week.
    And the day after that announcement, Adelson quietly slipped into the White House for a private meeting with Trump and three top administration officials: Vice President Mike Pence, Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin and an Adelson favorite, National Security Adviser John Bolton, according to two conservative sources familiar with the previously unreported private event.
