Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) couldn’t contain his happiness as he promised to inflict pain on and fight with Iran.
Lindsey Graham sounds thrilled with a war with Iran
Graham told reporters, “So here is what Iran needs to get ready for, severe pain inside their country, that their capabilities pale in comparison to ours. We won’t let them disrupt navigation of the seas, attack our allies with U.S. Interests without paying a price. If they’re itching for a fight, they’re going to get one.”
When asked, “How close are we to doing that?”
Sen, Graham answered, “We’re a lot closer today than yesterday. Only God knows what tomorrow brings.”

Iran shot down a US drone, and Lindsey Graham can’t contain his joy over the possibility that the US is about to engage in a military conflict that will make the invasion of Iraq look like a Sunday picnic in the park. Iran appears to be calling Trump’s bluff. The world has been observing this president bluster and threaten while doing nothing for years.
The same group of Republicans that led the country into war in Iraq is trying to start a war with Iran. They are even following the same playbook. The Trump administration has been provoking Iran with hostile behavior since John Bolton joined the White House.
The neo-con sickness is showing its face again as Lindsey Graham is trying to push the nation to war.
