Lindsey Graham says he plans to introduce an authorization for the use of military force in Iran by summers end

“If nothing changes in Iran, come September, October, I will present a resolution that will authorize the use of military force to prevent Iran from developing a nuclear bomb,” Graham told the conference audience.

“The only way to convince Iran to halt their nuclear program is to make it clear that we will take it out,” he continues.

The National Iranian American Council came out today condemning Graham’s call to war.

“Senator Lindsey Graham’s saber rattling is reckless and seriously undermines U.S. and international efforts to resolve the Iranian nuclear issue,” said NIAC Policy Director Jamal Abdi. “The Senator’s call for war and a push for new Congressional sanctions could become a serious setback to U.S. efforts to reinvigorate nuclear diplomacy once Iran’s new president takes office in August.”

“There is a renewed push for moderation on both sides of the U.S.-Iran dispute right now,” said Abdi. “The bellicose calls for war and sanctions by some U.S. politicians is out of touch with the majority of Americans, just as the hostile rhetoric of Iranian officials has been roundly rejected by the Iranian people.”

Graham’s statements come a week after former Ambassador John Bolton called for the“toppling” if the new Hassan Rohani regime in Iran.

Bolton told the Jerusalem Post that “Israel should have attacked Iran yesterday”.
