Skip to comments.Sen. Graham: Gadhafi, like Hitler, is serious about attacking Europe (BARF ALERT)

Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) warned on Tuesday that Libyan dictator Moammar Gadhafi is "serious" about attacking European cities in order to pressure European officials to cease their airstrikes against Libya.
"He actually means it," Graham said of Gadhafi. "Hitler meant it. He means it."
Graham spoke in a colloquy with Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) and used borderline apocalyptic tones about the need to remove Gadhafi from power.
"I know we're a war-weary nation, but there is no upside to Gadhafi staying in power," he said. "That is a national security nightmare for this country."
Graham added that while the top priority of the U.S. is to balance its budget, he warned that economic prosperity depends on removing dictators like Gadhafi.
"There will never will be economic prosperity in America if the world is in the hands of evil people who will make it very difficult for us to travel and trade and do business," he said.
He also said the U.S. needs to warm up to its role as the leader of the free world.
"I believe that we're destined to lead the free world," he said. "I don't consider it a burden. I consider it the birthright of all Americans not only to maintain our freedom, but to help others secure theirs.
"The day that America rejects that leadership role is the day we will eventually lose our freedom," he added.

Lindy Graham is a bona-fide, certified moron. I can’t believe people like him can get out of the bed in the morning, forget being a legislator...
Gaddafi is serious about living out his last few years on earth in the relative opulence that the job of being dictator of Libya can provide.
“You people of South Caroline should be ashamed of yourselves for sending nut case gramnesty to dc,”
For once you are actually right.
GRRRRREAT FReeper smackdown of Lindsey Graham!
Another smackdown of the “jackass”...here...
HOORAY Ann Barnhardt!
It is actually a familiar pattern:
It is a given what kind of refugees Libya will export to the USA, regardless of who wins. Neither side of the conflict loves the USA.
Oh My God, Gadhafi is going to respond to unprovoked and illegal military attacks against his country. He is a terrorist! Bomb the Libyan cities immediately!
Doesn't Gadhafi know that there is no such thing as national sovereignty in the NWO. You bow to the Globalists or pay the price!
” Graham cant see the difference between siding with France and Europe against Hitler, and siding with members of Al Qaeda against Khadaffy.
And I thought I was a basher of the French. Im a piker compared to Graham. “
>>>Gaddaffi attacking Europe would the same thing as putting a gun is his mouth. Gaddaffi is not that insane or stupid.<<<
I’m not so sure about that. Spain capitulated to the jihadis after the train bombings a couple years ago. That said, I don’t think too many European nations have the intestinal fortitude to deal with SCUD strikes or etc. in return for supporting the jihadis in Libya.
Also, for all the prattling about international law I’m saying the Mr. Khaddafy can cite those same international laws when he strikes back at the countries that are attacking him. I just don’t see any justification (past British and French oil contracts) for the USA to be involved in Libya.
Oh for God's sake- what bulltwinkie ! Like he just now has become a security nightmare, 20 years AFTER the Lockerbie bombing?
He wants to invade Europe ? Riiiighht.
This isn’t the same situation as Spain 2004. France for example wouldn’t just take a SCUD strike from Libya. He does that and he’s a dead man.
Khaddafy is a dead man anyway so what’s he have to lose by shooting at France or the UK that he’s not going to lose anyway?
