Huckabee, behind in the polls and not wanting to be outdone by the "we must go to war with Iran" Giuliani campaign, went on Late Edition this Sunday morning and tried his best to prove he's just as capable of starting an unnecessary war based on bad intelligence as any other Republican candidate. Repeating the lie that Ahmadinejad said he wants to destroy Israel, Huckabee swears he will do "whatever it takes," and will not even rule out using tactical nukes in doing so.
Huckabee: "I think the President's right with trying to bankrupt them before we bomb them. That's a good way to start."
He also thinks that Saddam really did have WMDs. Just because we never found them yet doesn't mean he didn't have them; and if he's elected President, the first thing he's going to do is dig up the end-zone in Giants Stadium to look for them. (OK, I made that last part up, but not by much).
