Via Atrios we have a Republican Rep. from Texas saying he wants to nuke Syria. I think we now have more than an inkling that there is a fifth column in the US, people who agree with Osama Bin Laden and are trying to further his agenda. Rep. Johnson seems like a prime person to fit that bill. He wants to nuke a country that has a type of Islam that OBL can’t stand, Shi’ah sympathetic (although not primarily Shi’ah), and he wants to kill Christian minorities in Muslim majority countries. Isn’t this part of the Al-Qaeda platform?
Texas Democrats, how about running an opponent and using some of the following slogans:
“We don’t support Al-Qaeda”
“Don’t nuke Christians”
“Osama Bin Laden doesn’t write my foreign policy”
Note: The above comments are my own personal opinion and in no way reflect knowledge of Rep. Johnson’s own views. He should be more careful with his words, or they could be construed in ways he did not consciously mean.
