nukedUS Congressman Duncan Hunter’s urge for launching a nuclear strike against Iran sheds light on his possible role during America’s war against Iraq and the use of depleted uranium against the country, a political analyst writes for Press TV website.

“Hunter’s service in Iraq and Afghanistan should now be questioned in light of his recent statements that demonstrate, minimally, his lack of respect for international law and his position as an elected official,” wrote Gordon Duff in an article published on Friday.

“Evidence has now come to light that Congressman Hunter, while serving as a Marine artillery officer near Fallujah, may have participated in nuclear attacks using specialized 155mm weapons he was specially trained to deploy,” the article read.

“When Hunter openly advocated the use of tactical nuclear weapons against Iran, he may well have been speaking of something he was intimately familiar with. As a trained nuclear weapons officer, Hunter was at Fallujah when evidence has proven such weapons were deployed and in command of a unit uniquely capable of delivering such weapons,” Duff wrote.

As a consequence of the US attack on Fallujah with bombs containing depleted uranium, many cases of cancer and birth defects are now witnessed among local population.

Duff noted that Hunter, the son of the former chairman of the powerful House Armed Forces Committee, joined the Marine Corps after 9/11 and later made his way through Congress under the auspices of his father and using the “war hero” ticket.

In an interview with C-SPAN on Wednesday morning, hawkish congressman, Hunter, called on Washington to use “tactical nuclear weapons” to destroy Iranian nuclear facilities.

He suggested that in case of military action, any American strike would be a “massive aerial bombing campaign,” the Army Times reported.

He also lashed out at the nuclear agreement sealed between Iran and the six major powers in Geneva on November 24.

Republican lawmakers have started an anti-Iran campaign to formally challenge President Barack Obama over the nuclear agreement with Iran.

Last week, another Republican member of the House of Representatives, Rep. Michele Bachmann, said Iran’s nuclear facilities “must be bombed.”

House Republicans are considering several possible responses to the agreement. One option would be pressuring the Senate to consider new sanctions on Iran and the other would be the adoption of a bill to formally express disapproval of the deal.
