Ron Paul on Iran

Rep. Paul on Resolution 21, the latest saber-rattling nonsense aimed at Iran:

" Clearly, language threatening to wipe a nation or a group of people off the map is to be condemned by all civilized people. And I do condemn any such language. But why does threatening Iran with a pre-emptive nuclear strike, as many here have done, not also deserve the same kind of condemnation? Does anyone believe that dropping nuclear weapons on Iran will not wipe a people off the map? When it is said that nothing, including a nuclear strike, is off the table on Iran, are those who say it not also threatening genocide? And we wonder why the rest of the world accuses us of behaving hypocritically, of telling the rest of the world 'do as we say, not as we do.'"

Why is it that so few elected representatives "get it"?

To understand why so few elected reps "get it" would require that we calculate how much these same elected reps $get$. Or does it come as a great surprise that this gift was given by congress the same day that Olmert was visiting the pres and Netahyahu was vetting the candidtates.
