House Rep. Deutch: Nuclear Disarmament Won’t Make World Safer
Congressman Ted Deutch (D) of Coconut Creek, FL attempts to explain to POP’s Matt Benzion why nuclear disarmament won’t make the world safer for “democracy”, but that sanctions and the US military will.
Rep. Deutch apparently believes that Iran having nuclear power will trigger a nuclear arms race in the Middle East.. but someone should really show him a map (http://en.rian.ru/images/15514/99/155…) of how many countries in the region already have nuclear weapons.
And for those of you wondering, yes, the guy who stated that “It’s our job to protect Israel” and then changed the subject to balancing budgets was definitely wearing a Christian organization t-shirt!
When approached by POP spokesmen after the forum, Rep. Deutch declined to respond to further inquiry on nuclear disarmament or the National Defense Authorization Act and its provisions authorizing the indefinite detention of US citizens without due process.
The Congressman, who cited illness as his reason for limiting the amount of questions he’d answer, did however agree to meet with POP reps at his office at a later date.
Hopefully by then he’ll have time to come up with a good answer as to why he supports legislation that rewards war profiteers and strips Americans of their fundamental rights.
