US senator calls on Israel to nuke Gaza, says US made the right call against Japan

US Senator Lindsey Graham

US Senator Lindsey Graham says Israel should drop nuclear bombs on Gaza to end the war and do “whatever” it deems necessary in the aggression, drawing a comparison to when the US dropped atomic bombs on Japan during World War II.

Graham, a South Carolina Republican, suggested that Israel would be right to flatten the besieged Gaza Strip simply because the US did it to the Japanese cities of Hiroshima and Nagasaki in 1945 and killed more than 200,000 people.

“Why is it OK for America to drop two nuclear bombs on Hiroshima and Nagasaki to end their existential threat war? Why was it OK for us to do that? I thought it was OK,” he told NBC News on Sunday,

“So, Israel, do whatever you have to do to survive ... Whatever you have to do.”

Graham also urged US President Joe Biden to provide the occupying regime with more bombs.

“When we were faced with destruction as a nation after Pearl Harbor, fighting the Germans and the Japanese, we decided to end the war by bombing Hiroshima, Nagasaki with nuclear weapons,” he said, calling the atomic attacks “the right decision” by the US.

“Give Israel the bombs they need to end the war. They can’t afford to lose,” the US senator added.

The remarks came days after Biden claimed that he had halted a weapons shipment to Israel and that he might continue to do so if the regime launched a full-scale assault on Rafah, the southernmost Gaza city where 1.5 million Palestinians are sheltering.

Israel unleashed its US-baked Gaza onslaught on October 7 after the Palestinian Hamas resistance group carried out a historic operation against the usurping entity in retaliation for its intensified atrocities against the Palestinian people.

The Tel Aviv regime has so far killed at least 35,034 Palestinians, mostly women and children, and injured 78,755 others.
