Sen. Lindsey Graham Warns of Iran-Israel War and Iranian Nuclear Attacks if U.S. does not Attack Syria – Video 9/4/13
Here is video of Sen. Lindsey Graham arguing for an aggressive use of military force against Syria in order to let America’s allies and enemies know we are not weak. Graham believes “if we get Syria wrong,” there will be a war between Iran and Israel within “six months,” because Israel will believe they must act alone to stop Iran’s Nuclear Program. If Iran gets Nuclear Weapons, Graham warned of nuclear attacks against the United States, not using missiles, but coming into a harbor like Charleston or New York with a weapon in the belly of a ship.
The problem, of course, is that President Obama is not proposing a major strike against Syria, but only a “shot across the bow.” Graham agrees that a weak attack would be as bad or worse than doing nothing at all. Graham provided no real answers to what happens to the Chemical Weapons in Syria if we help Al-Qaeda rebels seize control there. He only said rebels should have to agree to turn the weapons over to the International Community! Really? Like we can trust them to do the right thing?
I don’t think this is going to be enough to get the Congress to approve going to war with Syria.
