Lindsey Graham Working On Resolution Authorizing War Against Iran

His colleagues on Capital Hill wouldn't authorize a little war against Syria, so now he's going to try to get them to authorize a big war in Iran.

LINK

quote:

Sen. Lindsey Graham is one of the strongest advocates of an American military strike against the Assad regime in Syria. He was unhappy when President Obama decided to seek congressional authorization for an attack, and then unhappy when his fellow lawmakers voiced disapproval of the president's plan. Graham believes the diplomatic path chosen by the administration will lead to a debacle.

Given all that, Graham now says he will work with a bipartisan group of senators to craft a resolution authorizing the president to use military force -- not against the Syrian regime but against Iran. In an appearance on Fox News' Huckabee program over the weekend, Graham argued that such a resolution is essential, because American inaction in Syria will encourage Iran to go forward with its nuclear weapon program, eventually leading toward a Mideast conflagration if the U.S. doesn't intervene.

"Look how we've handled the chemical weapons threat in Syria," Graham said. "If we duplicate that with the Iranians, they're going to march toward a nuclear weapon and dare Israel to attack them. So in the next six months, our friends in Israel are going to have to take the Iranians on, unless the United States can send a clear signal to Iran, unlike what we've sent to Syria.

"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."

I've never understood how his colleagues consider him an expert on foreign affairs. How did he get such an influential role?

Pretty sure Iran's leaders don't give a shite about our perspective regarding Syria. They know we want to stop them from developing nuclear weapons. The only question is how far are we willing to go to stop them.

Wonder what huckabee, a well known Christian, had to say in response to this preemptive use of violence, which goes against Christian doctrine?

Dude is an absolute piece of shite....

On accident, I caught a segment on Jon Stewart last night that ripped him apart. Wasn't funny, bc I think Stewart is horrible, but it was honest.

Stewart was going off about gun control and he showed a clip of Graham whining about the constitution and how it needs to be taken literally in regards to owning guns and not being infringed, but then flashed to Graham just this year saying that the constitution should be "interpreted" in regards to the NSA getting verizon phone records and that he is a verizon customer and he doesn't care if they have his.

I'm starting to believe the fact that they know much more than they're letting on and an all-out war in the ME is certain to occur sooner, rather than later. I'm convinced that was the only reason for the knee jerk reaction to the Syria debacle. Obama knew a military strike consisting of a few missiles would encite more chaos and draw us into a full campaign in an effort of not only protecting Israel, but also surrounding Iran being that we have a presence in Kuwait, Iraq, Saudi Arabia, and Afghanistan. Syria is the last missing piece of us being the ME's police force for the future generation.

I don't agree with it, but this is the only thing that makes any sense to me.

It really is amazing how our politicians view our men and women in the military as pieces of a game that they can just throw away when they want to. It is sickening. I love my country as much as the next guy. But, I don't know if I would ever want my children to serve in the military, and that's a shame.

I find most of his stuff honest. I don't believe he would purposely mislead anyone. I think of him and Bill Oreilly on about the same level just opposite sides of the aisle.

Now thats funny, I don't care who you are.

I actually miss the Neo-Cons, though. I never though I would but some of the tea bagging republicans make the Neo-Cons appear normal.
