    Senator Lindsay Graham Warns Of War With Iran, Confrontation With "Cheating" China

    With republicans back in control, it was only a matter of time before the military-industrial complex reminded the world of its existence. It took about 72 hours: republican senator Lindsay Graham, who apparently has not received the memo that all modern wars are now waged in binary, and are won by those who can push the FX bid/ask the furthest and the fastest away from equilibrium, spoke at the Halifax International Security Forum, giving a very distinct taste of what US foreign policy is about to look like: "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...

    I do think war with Iran is inevitable. Iran is a nation seeking war, and they must be stopped if diplomacy and sanctions don't stop them.

    Distrust between governments happens all the time.

    Iran just wants to keep you from invading it. If they have a nuclear weapon, it garuntees that you will not invade it.

    The trick is, you have to stop countries from Building WMD's, if one gets away with it, the rest will follow, destabilising the world, and making it far more likely an actual terrorist organization could get their hands on those weapons.

    The day a nuclear weapon goes off in a Western City, that day will have the swiftest response in military history
