Sen. Lindsey Graham "Sees Confrontation with China, War with Iran"

US Senator sees 'confrontation' with China, war with Iran

by Michel Comte Michel Comte – 53 mins ago

HALIFAX, Canada (AFP) – 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 conservatives, 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."
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."

Rest assured, no matter how much saber rattling and conservative posturing Lindsey Graham may attempt between now and 2014, the voters of South Carolina will not forget that he has supported the nationalization of banks, the fingerprinting of all Americans, national ID cards, amnesty for illegal aliens, cap and tax, and the confirmation of two radical appointees to the U.S. Supreme Court, among other outrages. He is a rogue Senator who has betrayed the voters of South Carolina. http://www.sunlituplands.org/2010/03/lindsey-grahams-advocacy-of-national-id.html
