Huckabee to Iran: “The next thing you see will be the gates of Hell”

Posted by republicrat on January 11, 2008

What the Huck!?  I don’t agree with Governor Mike Huckabee on everything, but you can’t say that the man isn’t a good orator.  His homespun style and background as a Baptist preacher give him a unique oratorical style. Last night when asked whether or not he backed the decision of the U.S. naval commanders to not fire on the Iranian ships during the recent incident in the Strait of Hormuz he responded

“Be prepared, first, to put your sights on the American vessel. And then be prepared that the next thing you see will be the gates of Hell, because that is exactly what you will see after that.”

    Fred Thompson’s response was just as outrageous. Their comments may have fired up neo-cons who favor Cowboy diplomacy, but from the responses I’ve been reading anywhere else… well, they’re scaring people.
