What’s funnier than Fabulous Miss Lindsey Graham talking all butch and calling for war with Iran?
That’s exactly what Miss Lindsey told reporters at the Halifax International Security Forum in Nova Scotia, Canada. Miss Lindsey said there will come a point where Iran’s nuclear program will reach a point that a conventional, limited air strikes “won’t take them out.”
“We’re probably even past that point. Instead of a surgical strike on their nuclear infrastructure, I think we’re to the point now that you have to really neuter the regime’s ability to wage war against us and our allies. And that’s a different military scenario. It’s not a ground invasion but it certainly destroys the ability of the regime to strike back.”
The senator said that if the United States did attack Iran’s navy and air force, Iran could retaliate with unconventional attacks on U.S. forces in Afghanistan and launch terrorist attacks in other parts of the world.
“You can expect that. You can expect, for a period of time, all hell to break loose. You must have to almost plan for that. And weigh that against the idea of a nuclear-armed Iran and what that means to the future of the world.”
