Sen. Lindsey Graham to Congress: ‘Let’s Just Blow Up Iran
SEPTEMBER 16, 2013
Forget Syria; Lindsey Graham is going straight for Iran.
The Republican Senator from South Carolina announced on Saturday that he is going to officially approach Congress to seek military authorization for a strike on Iran to destroy the nation’s nuclear program.
The Blaze reports:
Graham, speaking on Gov. Mike Huckabee’s Fox News program, said the move will work to make sure we send “a clear signal that this debacle called Syria doesn’t mean we’re confused about Iran.”
Is this a signal that Iran was the goal of Syrian intervention all along? Senator Graham has been warning that if we don’t bomb Syria, it will lead to war with Iran within six months.
Graham has a long history of warmongering, especially when it comes to Iran. Back in 2010 at an AIPAC meeting, the Senator told the pro-Israel lobby that, “The Congress has your back” and Israel is “our best friend in the world.” He went on to say “all options must be on the table” and “you know exactly what I’m talking about” when it comes to potentially bombing Iran.
In addition, Graham’s top campaign contributors include Boeing and General Electric — key military-industrial complex players that would profit heavily off any war.
