There is wide support in Congress for using all means to keep Iran from becoming a nuclear power, “through diplomatic and economic sanctions if we possibly can, through military actions if we must,” visiting US Senator Joe Lieberman (I-CT) said Wednesday in Jerusalem.
Lieberman, flanked at a Jerusalem press conference by his senate colleagues John McCain (R-AZ) and Lindsey Graham (R-SC), used very tough language, saying the words “military action” in regards to stopping Iran’s nuclear program. Most US officials opt to tiptoe around the subject, saying “no options are off the table.”
Lieberman said that “a certain trumpet needs to sounded here for the Iranian regime to hear.”...
Graham was even blunter.
“The Congress has Israel’s back,” he said, “and never misunderstand that. Whatever relationship problems we have had in the past, it has never seeped over into Congress. The Congress has been united in protection of one of our best allies in the world, the State of Israel.”
Graham really likes this particular metaphor. This isn’t the first time he used it.
Remember when the Russian Czars had to actually fabricate meetings showing Jews controlling the actions of great powers?
If you have the stomach to actually watch the video, you'll hear something very revealing. Graham calls the night a "celebration" because it's a meeting with the one group that every member of congress bows before. To those of us who haven't gained fame and power by being subservient to Jewish interests, it, and all gatherings like it, are symbols of what's gone wrong in the Republic.
For all their faults, how can not one admire the Iranians and especially Palestinians, when one considers that these poor third worlders stand up to Israel while the leaders of the biggest empire the world has ever seen can't? Best of luck to them in confronting American/Zionist aggression.
