Lindsey Graham: Attack Syria or Iran Will Nuke Charleston
fitsnews.com ^ | 06 Sep 2013

Posted on 09/08/2013 5:13:33 AM PDT by BarnacleCenturion

At an invitation-only breakfast for establishment Republican types in Mount Pleasant, S.C. this week, Graham said that if America doesn’t take military action against the regime of Syrian president Bashar al-Assad, Iran will acquire a nuclear weapon by the end of 2014.

“I believe that if we get Syria wrong, within six months – and you can quote me on this – there will be a war between Iran and Israel over their nuclear program,” Graham said, according to U.S. News and World Report.

But the fear-mongering didn’t stop there. Graham says this conflict will come home to – of all places – Charleston, S.C.

“It won’t come to America on top of a missile, it’ll come in the belly of a ship in the Charleston or New York harbor,” he said.

Mini MeCain should be asking Obama why he nixed Israel's attacking Iran's nuke sites!

‘US pressure nixed Israeli strike on Iran last year’

He must really be afraid of whoever he promised a war to.

The logic of how us attacking Syria will stop Iran from developing a nuke is non-existent.

I sure hope SC primaries this guy.

we bomb Syria to prevent Iran from attacking us? What if we just bomb Iran to prevent Syria from gassing the rebels?

Occasionally, honesty IS shown.

Iran IS Jarrett, and Jarrett IS Graham,
so this is a clear direct threat against the people of
S. Carolina to vote for him, or they and their
families and children will die by a White House-arranged
nuclear holocaust.

Well, there’s a lost nuke somewhere just offshore. If that one blows, will that be from Iran too?

Linda Graham: My only request is that you let the Iranians know when you plan to visit your hometown state, so they can schedule the bombing accordingly. However, South Carolinians have little to worry about. You never visit Charleston anymore, so my guess is that the city is safe. Nonetheless, Iranians might be familiar with your frequent visits to San Francisco, so perhaps that city faces a more grave danger of a nuke attack.

I thought attatcking Syria was “for the children”. Or was that “for the world”? I guess its neither: its to protect Charleston!

And now we hear the Pentagon has changed the attack plan at least 50 times!

This whole adventure is so screwed up. We really need some adults to start running the country.

That is a known and worrisome fact, yet Graham seems to be more concerned about the unknown and unfounded.

He is a complete dufus. South Carolina needs to recall this clown.

So what. It is not our job to bail out Israel with our military. If they and Iran want to duke it out, let ‘em. Were there not so many U.S. military options on the table, these two would have to compromise. Time for the U.S. and Russia to call BS.

This gets my vote for the “most sarcastic yet full of truth” post of 2013.

Well done.

Then it's time to publicly, and militarily, back Israel.

Israel will win that one, with our without us. For once during the BHO Administration, let's go with the winner.

OK. Enough.

We went to war with Iraq again because of Chemical Weapons. That was a real event and the Kurds had helped us in the first Gulf War. I met some members of the tribe when I was there. Saddam was a brutal SOB.

What we got was the rest of the Muslim world hating us.

We went into Afghanistan to get the SOB who killed our citizens on 9/11 and to kick out a brutal, oppressive regimen, the Taliban. What we got was the Muslim world hating us.

We found the SOB that ordered our people killed on 9/11 hiding in Pakistan, our "ally" in the region. We killed him. What we got was the Muslim world hating us.

Enough blood and treasure for these people. Syria has nothing we need. If we want a war with Iran - who frankly has been a thorn in our side since Jimmy Carter misread the culture back in 1979 - then fight that war.

You cannot fight a war from the air. It is NOT some sterile, limited engagement. Don't get me wrong, I personally thanked God every single night for the Warthog drivers who covered me and my unit. But fighting and - I am going to use the correct term - killing the enemy means getting up close and personal. It means putting our soldiers on the ground in Syria. I, for one, do not support that.

“It won’t come to America on top of a missile, it’ll come in the belly of a ship in the Charleston or New York harbor,” he said.

Whew! by ship. That is sort of good news, if there is anything good about a nuke. That means they can keep the southern border wide open because no one would think about trying to move nuke or dirty bomb materials across it.

Iran probably has nukes already and they probably have a couple old Soviet nukes that got lost after the fall.

>>It is not our job to bail out Israel with our military.<<

Israel is our richest source of intel in that region, they are our ally as well.

You got it all wrong...we should help Israel during an attack on Iran. We should not have depleted our resources in places like Iran, Afghanistan and or Syria.

The real threat IS Iran as well as N.Korea. They have the ability to wipe out hundreds of thousands to millions in one strike.

By the way, Russia has quite the history of oppression and abuse of their citizens. Millions have died at the hands of the Soviet tyrants and the invasion of Eastern Europe.

Why would we listen to ANYTHING former KGB agent Putin has to say? Syria is a longtime ally of the Soviet Union. Assad's dad was a brutal dictator, responsible for thousands of deaths of their own countrymen. Hafez Al- Assad...remember him?

They could nuke North Charleston and we would be better off. At least it would save the taxpayers money for welfare benefits and housing the scum population in prison.

I say go for it.

Revised edition: What we need to do is tell these (place appropriate descriptor here) that if the U.S. ever attacks a sovereign nation without just provocation.. We will unleash HELL upon their little (place appropriate descriptor here) heads......And mean it!

We’re going to reach the point where that second phrase becomes more likely if we continue to allow our leaders to rum amok. It’s time to bring this to a screeching halt. NOW!

I remember him along with FDR, Truman, johnson, Nixon, Reagan, Bush and the entire long line of warmongering bastards. Iran poses no threat to us, and Israel is a little bird that needs to be kicked out of the nest.
