Time for U.S. to Launch Nuclear Attack on Iran
Sheldon Adelson, described by Forbes magazine as the 12th richest American, made his estimated $34 billion in IT and subsequently by purchasing and building casinos. On Tuesday night this week though he was giving his views on Iran and its nuclear energy program. Participating in a forum at Yeshiva University he ridiculed American efforts to negotiate with the Iranians and suggested the U.S. military should drop a nuclear bomb in the desert parts of the country as a warning shot, with a threat to repeat the exercise in Tehran if the Iranians refused to negotiate.
Adelson, who is Jewish, publishes the Israeli daily newspaper Israel HaYom. Born in Boston, Massachusetts, the magnate came to fame in 1979 when he and his associates inaugurated the computer trade show COMDEX for the then-burgeoning computer industry. Less than a yera later he headed a bid to buy the Sands Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas. Today as Chairman and CEO of Las Vegas Sands Corporation he oversees substantial casino operations in Las Vegas and Macau, including the Venetian casino resorts, and the multi-billion dollar Marina Bay Sands in Singapore.
At Tuesday night’s forum the billionaire was asked by moderator Rabbi Shmuley Boteach what he thought about the currently mooted negotiations between the U.S. and Iran. “What are we going to negotiate about,?” Adelson replied. He then put forward his proposition that an Iranian official be contacted and told to “watch this,” while the U.S. military dropped a nuclear bomb in 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’,” he said.
“So a tremendous demonstration of American strength?” Boteach asked. “So that they would get the message?”
“It’s the only thing they understand,” Adelson responded.
“And do you see the current negotiations as a sign of weakness?” Boteach queried.
“Absolutely,” Adelson said. “It’s the worst negotiating tactic I could ever imagine, my entire life.”
“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?”
