Lindsay Graham has squandered any claim he had for credibility among Republicans. This comes not only from his treacherous record domestically but from a history of international relations which reveals him to have been an indiscriminate warmonger.

The infuriating part of all this is that this blind pig has found this one peanut; he is quite correct in his assertion that Iran must be bombed if necessary to prevent them getting the bomb. The problem is that Lindsey Graham, riding postillion with John McCain, has sought to inject America into war after war in the Middle East and must now be regarded like the boy who cried wolf. Lindsey Graham has been one of the principal malefactors in diverting America's precious dwindling military resources and economic base in wars in the Middle East. He does not discriminate between those conflicts in which America has an immediate national interest and those in which he merely wants to have his way.

After Iraq, Afghanistan, the fiasco in Egypt, the fiasco in Libya, and about 10 or 15 other wars in which America is engaged but which the American people know little or nothing of, Lindsey Graham, with this kind of policy, has just about made it certain that nothing will be done to stop Iran getting the bomb. We have no money, no patience, no national consensus, and dwindling defense resources. That which should be done in Iran probably will not be done thanks in part to Lindsay.

One last word, Lindsey Graham's domestic record is so appalling that one is warranted now accusing him of opportunism and seeking this resolution. I believe he is pandering to the well-known martial spirit of patriots in South Carolina to rally his reelection chances. If so, this move ranks as one of the most cynical of the year.

indiscriminate warmonger - yes, he is.

Spot on. The "military industrial complex" need to lose their two best PR guys - Graham and McCain - for the good of the country. Those two are drunk on their power.
