Wow; it’s not even primary season and Louis Gohmert may have already hit Peak Crazy. While sitting in with Fox host Arthel Neville, he described what the host called a “dangerous” and “volatile” plan to bomb Iran’s nuclear sites.
Gohmert made the argument on Sunday that President Obama’s Iran negotiations have already failed because Obama’s letting them “go full-blown nuclear.”
They went full nuclear. You never go full nuclear.
Gohmert had a solution to this problem, though, and it’s the sort of situation that Michael Bay would approve of: “You step up the sanctions full-blown, and I think that it’s time to look at a plan to go in and bomb them.”
Neville pointed out that Russia might have an issue with us bombing Iran, saying, “If the U.S. bombs Iran’s nuclear facilities, do you think Russia is going to stand by and let that happen?”
Gohmert didn’t see a problem, thought: “I don’t think Russia is in a position to do anything. They’re bogged down too many places.”
Neville was at a loss for words, and stammering, “You really don’t think — I mean, that’s a volatile option there. To go in and bomb Iran’s nuclear facilities, and you really believe that Russia will stop and say, ‘Okay, fine, go for it.’ I mean, that’s a dangerous…”
He reminded her that “they’re not crazy over there in Russia” (and Gohmert knows crazy) and that Russia might even get behind an attack on Iran, because Putin is apparently “concerned about radical Islamist terror much more so than [the Obama] administration is.”
Neville, bringing the segment to an end, noted, “We haven’t discussed an actual plan because I’m sure it’s quite complex. We don’t have one on the table, not from you this morning.”
Hey, that plan, however insane, show more thought and creativity than anything the Republicans have crafted during Obama’s entire administration.
Gohmert insisted it would work, saying, “Well, yeah, I think that once Iran realizes we’re serious about taking it out, they come to the table.”
Nobody tell this poor stupid soul that they’re already at the table, okay?
