Skip to comments.Sen. Lindsey Graham to seek authorization for U.S. attack on Iran
Posted on 09/19/2013 5:10:52 PM PDT by steelhead_trout
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.

Lindsay “Low Hand” Graham thinks he is the C in C now?
What in the world is going on with ol linseed graham.
he is as batty and senile as it gets if you ask me
McCain and Graham are the blunder Twins
Iran should seek UN approval to strike Lindsey Graham’s home in Washington DC
If youd like to be on or off, please FR mail me.
Yes, America's projection of weakness, not inaction, does encourage Iran. And North Korea. And Russia, the Muslim Brotherhood and their terror offshoots, pretty much everyone who hates America. Irrespective about anyone feels about a strike on Syria, it wasn't a lack of Congressional action that deep sixed it. If if were ever contemplated. The idea that somehow Congress can force an unwilling Commander in Chief is something new. Lindsay should worry about Obamacare, Syria is a dead issue.
When you become POTUS (or declared sane) you can attack whomever you like. Since we are now a dictatorship. you won’t even need to ask permission or anything!
In the meantime, go away!
If at first you can’t invade, try try again...somewhere else.
What’s this, a fag hissyfit over getting censured?
Freep You Lindsey Graham (FULG)!!
I am starting to wonder if he and McCain are suffering from syphylis and it has gone to their brains! They are just off the charts crazed these days.
Lady Lispy has gone ‘round the bend.
All the jokes aside, what’s WRONG with this guy? What is motivating him and others like McCain? Is there money involved somehow? Because this is just nuts for them to risk reelection. Only money or blackmail could explain this idiocy! Well, maybe it could be some kind of gay brotherhood thing, but otherwise, it makes no sense.
He’s a nutjob.
Why is this is breaking news? It was posted yesterday:
Why does she want to attack Iran?
Somethings up with the Bobsey twins thats for sure....
It’s Limpy GRAmnesty— Big McAmnesty suck up. By the By he is going to lose his primary real bad.
I'd be willing to bet they both have big dollar donors from the military equipment/supplies sector.
<< I’d be willing to bet they both have big dollar donors from the military equipment/supplies sector. >>
Yeah, now that would make sense. They figure the big donor $ will be enough to get them reelected, plus they get to stay in the good graces of their Communist-Marxist-Socialist-Democrat masters. All they have to do is $ell their $ouls.
If that happens, I will thank God, and I don't even live in South Carolina.
This is what happens when you let lawyers think they’re soldiers.
“McCain and Graham are the blunder Twins”
They can both get a room with Huck! He’s a POS of the first order.
Blackmail is a great motivator.
War for sale! War! Who wants your war! We’ve got fresh war!
Or fudge packing thumper twins if you get my drift.
I agree, Iran needs their behind kicked in a bad way and when George Bush was president we should have, could have, would have gone in and strike Iran but now is not the time for it unless everyone including Israel was all on the same page.
1979 was the time for it. It’s been too late ever since. I don’t fault either George Bush for not going against Iran. I didn’t agree with him on just about anything else, but I’m glad Clinton stayed away from that sh*thole of a country too.
I hope it is. Syphilis can be cured. Stupid is forever.
But paresis of the brain, where the spirochetes from syphilis enter the brain, cannot be cured. The end result is insanity, then death. FWIW, this was the fate of Al Capone...
True, curing the syphilis will not repair existing damage to the brain, but it does stop further damage. WRT Linda, I'll take what I can get.
Senator Strangelove strikes again.
Graham says obama doesn’t need congressional authorization to attack Syria. But he wants to give obama authorization to attack Iran. Get your shit together, Linzy.
im sure many people are praying for this :
Former Sen. Lindsey Graham
Think about it...
This subject keeps him and McCain in the news carrying Obama's water ( what does he have on these two ) to keep them from doing what should be their real job and main focus, i.e. stoping Obamacare. In the process they have show a fractured un-unified GOP which is what Obama needs. Facilitators of darn near evil? One has to ask that IMHO..
This is what happens when you let lawyers think theyre soldiers.
DING!! We have a winner!!!
People in SC still swear Lindsey in a “conservative”. I believe the people there like all the publicity he brings them; just like the hapless Arizonans with McPain.
When your enemy is digging a hole, give him a shovel.
Hey lindsey - bomb Iran ... where? The weapons and research facilitiates are buried deep underground beneath tons of sand and rock. How would you ever know if it was successful? Its not as simple as just lobbing some bombs on these countries.
Lindsey Graham is a nut case....
Whats gives with these freaks? All of a sudden they want to start a war with every country in the middle east.
His biggest new fans will be Bombs Away McCain and Chickenhawk Hannity.
I think Democrats and Independents will save him unfortunately.
What’s this guy been smoking? Granted, I hate the leadership in Iran as much as the next person, but come on, now he’s advocating an all out regional war in the Middle East.
