Republican Bloodlust: Senator Lindsay Graham Lusts For War With Iran

• ZeroHedge.com
 
"Iran is a major threat to any conceivable world order" and that he sees an almost inevitable confrontation with Iran. As AP reports, 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." And the Democrats, still in shock over their recent pummelling, will likely not have the resolve to respond palliatively to such warmongering, which they likely deem as supported by the broad population: "US Democratic Senator Mark Udall, who joined Graham during a panel discussion at the forum in Halifax, Nova Scotia, urged continued sanctions against Iran. But he also noted that "every option is on the table," a thinly veiled reference to possible military action." And just when the world was getting along so well, and all the international bickering appeared to be taking place over various Forex terminals... More from AP: The United States faces a possible war with Iran to curb its nuclear ambitions and a "period of confrontation" with China over its currency, a top US lawmaker warned Saturday. Republican Senator Lindsey Graham said his fellow conservative, fresh from their historic elections romp this week, support "bold" action to deal with Iran. If President Barack Obama "decides to be tough with Iran beyond sanctions, I think he is going to feel a lot of Republican support for the idea that we cannot let Iran develop a nuclear weapon," he told the Halifax International Security Forum. "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." Furthermore, the fact that Iran recently converted 15% of its $100Bn+ in reserves into gold did not win it any brownie points with the global central banking cartel.

"War is never a good thing but sometimes it is the best option."  I agree. But war against the world's population the victory it wants to achieve is population control through infanticide, murder and genocide -- and to some innumerates even to stop immigration -- is never the best let alone a sane option.

Let's see, we should turn the other cheek again because somebody might make a buck off the war and Americans are evil and don't deserve to defend themselves using the best defense, an enormous offense.

 Lovely, you pacifists are a bunch of wimps, aren't you?

My, how these super chicken-hawks love to cry 'War', so long as it's not them or theirs doing the fighting and the dieing.

 And by the way, once they are declared by law criminals, shooting down dead each one of the 400,000 undocumented immigrants is one way of cutting down the large number of immigrants in the country. It just fits the runaway imagination of population innumerates that 100 million more added immigrants will turn America into a Third World Country. I think becoming a 3rd World country is much better than shooting people dead to reduce the world's population -- a crazy idea entertained by anti-immigration and anti-population weirdoes millions of Americans laughed at lately as a joke in television's Last Comic Standing show.

Bloodthirsty Republicans are also now itching to pass an immigration reform bill, which might become a demon hard to exorcise when they would declare by law 400,000 undocumented immigrants and their families in the country CRIMINAL. Millions of American immigrant citizens entertain this grim idea that as criminals they will just shoot each one of them dead because there is no jail in the country that can house all of them.
