Just who are the barbarians in this situation?

GOP Rep. Duncan Hunter of the United States Congress thinks we need to use the stick, not the carrot, on Iran.
HUNTER: “I think a ground war in Iran with American boots on the ground would be a horrible thing and I think people like to toss around the fact that we have to stop them in some way from gaining this nuclear capability. I don’t think it’s inevitable but I think if you have to hit Iran, you don’t put boots on the ground, you do it with tactical nuclear devices and you set them back a decade or two or three. I think that’s the way to do it with a massive aerial bombardment campaign.”
“To be frank, with Iran’s government, the way that it is driven by radical extremist Muslims, that’s different from self preservation mindset that North Korea has in kind of the old Soviet model, that’s different from Iran’s government,” Hunter said earlier in the segment, espousing the so-callled “martyr state myth.” He added: “When you’ll blow yourself up for your God that makes you more dangerous than the sense of self preservation that most people and most countries have.”  Link
The Iranians are lead by radical extremists, so we should murder millions of them; men, women, and children. Because that would make us safe.

Who is the more dangerous person here, the Iranians or the Congressman who wants to nuke them?
