    Lindsey Graham Wants War with Iran at the End of the Summer

    "If nothing changes in Iran, come September, October, I will present a resolution that will authorize the use of military force to prevent Iran from developing a nuclear bomb,"
    Lindsey Graham Wants War with Iran at the End of the Summer - Connor Simpson - The Atlantic Wire

    There have been several moves by Congress and the Senate within the last few years pushing us in this direction. Our alliance with Israel has been tightened as a result. Unless there is a major mistake made, I don't see us or the Israelis allowing Iran to get the bomb.

    That would be so wrong.

    What's with the undeclared war thing?

    Why is Congress so chicken-**** about just declaring war?
    Is there some procedural thing which make "authorization of force" so much better?
    To this layman, what we did in Iraq seems indistinguishable from war.
    I may be wrong.

    Oh my god. they just had an election. The ayatollah in Iran is anti-nuclear weapons. Let them have a bloody dialogue with the new president of Iran.

    Also, this is just pro-war propaganda to help him look tough when he's going to speak to his pro-war constituency. He's an asshole.

    I'm sure it's part of our infinity war, though end of summer may be too soon. I would not be surprised to see it within the year or so.

    Had this come from a serious Senator, it might be worth highlighting and cause concern. I'm guessing Lindsay has a new outfit, perfect for declaring war from the cheap seats, and he doesn't want it to go to waste.

    I'm of the belief that it will happen one day or another.

    I certainly hope not. But I don't think that such a move would put us on much more of a "war" footing with Iran than we already are.

    the Supreme Leader is the same guy as before the election: Grand Ayatollah Khamenei. He and the new President Rousani are both pro-nuclear-weapons.

    Let them have a bloody dialogue with the new president of Iran.
    the new President of Iran is the old chief nuclear negotiator for Iran, who authored the idea that Iran should use negotiations to string out western nations while it continues to develop nuclear weapons so that it can present them with a fate accompli. "Having a bloody dialogue" with him is the same thing as "let's just let them have the Bomb."
