BEIRUT, LEBANON (4:00 P.M.) – U.S. Senator Lindsey Graham of South Carolina has called on the U.S. administration to send a message to Iran by bombing the Islamic Republic’s oil refineries.

“Iranian supported Houthi rebels who attacked Saudi oil refineries is yet another example of how Iran is wreaking havoc in the Middle East. The Iranian regime is not interested in peace – they’re pursuing nuclear weapons and regional dominance,” Graham tweeted on Saturday.

“It is now time for the U.S. to put on the table an attack on Iranian oil refineries if they continue their provocations or increase nuclear enrichment,” he continued.

According to Graham, these strikes will deter Iran from continuing their activities in the Middle East region.

“Iran will not stop their misbehavior until the consequences become more real, like attacking their refineries, which will break the regime’s back,” Graham added.

Graham, along with a few other U.S. senators and representatives, have been strong advocates for military action against the Islamic Republic and increased pressure through different economic means.

Graham is a bellicose neocon – a military industrial complex bought off and controlled by moron. – of the same ilk as John Bolton. May this fool shut his mouth and stop moving the U.S. to war. He is a total disgrace to the U.S. and world and hopefully will vanish.

None of our business to mess with Iran. Let’s see, WHO does it benefit for us to mess with Iran??? Anti-Semitic Israel, that’s who. Israel is the most anti-Semitic country in the world today. As Arabs and Palestinians are Semitic peoples. That makes Israel and country of hypocrites. We should not support Israel. In fact, there should be sanctions against them just like countries did to South Africa.

You can’t bomb a country into submission. Unless a bombing campaign is supported by enough boots on the ground to enable a full-occupation of Iran, then it would fail.

A full-occupation would require conscription, and result in hundreds of thousands of lives.

Make no mistake, Senator Graham knows this, and is happy to spend every last drop of American blood (except his or his families) to get that Iranian oil for his biggest campaign contributors.

Iran is not Iraq, nor is it Serbia. I hope in the event this happens, a crapload of American aircraft not only get destroyed over Iran, but their pilots get captured. Same with IRGC bullets hitting Marines and Army on their way in.

The USA hawks are recless & eazy-going to bomb other nations. They bomb them & than get bogged in protracted wars & spend trillions of dollars after that, with no way out in sight, like it happened in Afganistan. Or they bring havoc & destruction to tens of millions of people like it happened in Iraq or Libya.

I’m pretty sure we have no good reason to break Iran’s back. Israel calls the shots for our traitorous legislators like Graham. All wars since 9/11, at least 5 trillion dollar’s worth, have been projects to help Israel bring chaos to the ME. How many congress critters will admit this? None, because they love money from Israel supporters.

Just a thought add a WWI Kaiser style mustache and Graham becomes indistinguishable from Herr Bolton.

“Iran is wreaking havoc in the Middle East”
– so says a representative of a regime that has military bases in nigh on a thousand locations World-wide and has pursued aggressive, illegal regime-change wars (along with its partner in crime, Israel), in Iraq, Lebanon, Libya, Syria ……and provides massive support to any ratbag outfit, ISIS included, that can be persuaded to attack Iran. And let us not forget Korea, Vietnam and South America.
Sheesh. You can’t make this stuff up.
