Yesterday Senator Lindsey Graham spoke at the Halifax International Security Forum held in Halifax, Nova Scotia in which he advocated going to war with Iran.
"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 South Carolina Republican saw the United States going to war with the Islamic republic "not to just neutralize their nuclear program, but to sink their navy, destroy their air force and deliver a decisive blow to the Revolutionary Guard, in other words neuter that regime."
This is not new language for Graham. He gave a speech at AIPAC last March in which he also advocated going to war with Iran as a last resort and yet as the only choice. And how fitting that he ended that speech with these words.
God bless all those who believe in peace and tolerance.
Graham must reserve special blessings for those like himself who see no alternative but war.
During dinner a few nights ago I told Steph that we should bring back the draft and include women.
"No way," she said. "That means I could be sent off to war."
Yes, but mandatory government service is an excellent motivator for getting young people to learn what their government is doing and care enough to do something about it.
