Lindsey Graham Makes The Case For Strike On Iran


HALIFAX, Nova Scotia — A leading U.S. senator on defense issues says any military strike on Iran to stop its nuclear program must also strive to take out Iran’s military capability.

Sen. Lindsey Graham, a South Carolina Republican who sits on the Armed Services Committee and the Homeland Security Committee, said Saturday the U.S. should consider sinking the Iranian navy, destroying its air force and delivering a decisive blow to the Revolutionary Guard.

He says they should neuter the regime, destroy its ability to fight back and hope Iranians will take a chance to take back their government.

His remarks stunned many in the audience at the Halifax International Security forum.

Graham told the audience that newly elected conservatives would back “bold” action against Iran, reports Agence France Presse:

If President Barack Obama “decides to be tough with Iran beyond sanctions, I think he is going to feel a lot of Republican support for the idea that we cannot let Iran develop a nuclear weapon,” he told the Halifax International Security Forum.

“The last thing America wants is another military conflict, but the last thing the world needs is a nuclear-armed Iran… Containment is off the table.”

The Obama administration, through top military officials, has made it clear that all options are on the table.

  1. Rest assured, no matter how much saber rattling and conservative posturing Lindsey Graham may attempt between now and 2014, the voters of South Carolina will not forget that he has supported the nationalization of banks, the fingerprinting of all Americans, national ID cards, amnesty for illegal aliens, cap and tax, and the confirmation of two radical appointees to the U.S. Supreme Court, among other outrages. He is a rogue Senator who has betrayed the voters of South Carolina.
