Sen. Lindsey Graham wants to attack Iran

While President Obama is signalling that he’s willing to talk with Iran’s president, South Carolina Senator Lindsey Graham is calling for an attack. While he admits that it’s not likely that he’ll get enough support to carry out any military action against Iran, Graham is insisting that it is something that the U.S. must do, to protect our interests in the region – or more importantly, to protect Israel.

“The mixed message and the debacle called Syria can’t be repeated when it comes to Iran,” Graham continued. “So here’s what I’m going to do. I’m going to get a bipartisan coalition together. We’re going to put together a use-of-force resolution allowing our country to use military force as a last resort to stop the Iranian nuclear program, to make sure they get a clear signal that all this debacle about Syria doesn’t mean we’re confused about Iran.”

Beyond the issue of involving the U.S. in yet another war, one issue with Graham’s proposal would be defining exactly what “last resort” is, especially in light of the current problem in Syria, with Obama’s “red line” on chemical weapons. While Israel’s Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu did define what the limit should be in regard to Iran’s development of nuclear weapons, that may not be the line the U.S. would want to draw. While attempts at diplomacy are being considered now with the President Hassan Rouhani, it’s also true that any talks are not likely to cause Iran to stop the centrifuges that are rapidly moving toward the point of producing weapon-level nuclear material.

    Strange that when some start to realize how insignificant they’ve become they have no other way to demonstrate their manhood than to fight….He is so joined at the (shall we say) hip with McCain that it’s difficult to distinguish the two. I believe they sing an off key ‘swan song’

    And if Obama does sit with Iran’s president he can skip de loo & say “See,see I kept the promise I gave when I first snookered the voters!”…and that is all that can come of it.

    Obama is bringing checkers to a chess match with Putin & Assad & actually thinks he can win.

    By the way, really miss the comments by some of our regulars…We have some great & informed posts that merit discussion.
