Here we go again …

Another day, another foreign country U.S. Sen. Lindsey Graham (RINO-S.C.) wants America to invade – using other people’s blood and your tax dollars, naturally. This time it’s Iran, which Graham wants to attack within the next four months.

“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 said earlier this week.

Really, dude? Really?

As we’ve noted on numerous previous occasions, Graham is nothing but a whore for America’s military industrial complex – which wants to waste American lives and tax dollars on conflicts all over the globe.

Never mind who that involves climbing into bed with …  or whether these conflicts have a specific national security objective or a compelling national interest. Graham doesn’t care about that – he wants us to go in guns a-blazing based on crappy intelligence and without a tactical objective or exit strategy.

Because, you know, that’s worked out so well for our country …

Not surprisingly, Graham’s ill-advised war-mongering has little to do with geopolitics and a lot to do with his forthcoming Republican primary battle in South Carolina.

“Taking a strong-arm approach to Iran right now — after the country elected a moderate President who may or may not want to cooperate with U.S. nuclear negotiations — seems like a pretty terrible idea,” writes Connor Simpson of The Atlantic. “But Graham already knows that. This bill, which will never amount to much of anything, is merely an item for his 2014 resume.”

Exactly …

And Graham needs to appear “strong-armed” given the fact he’s got a serious problem on the military front – most notably the fact he flat out lied about being a “Gulf War Veteran” during his early years in Washington, D.C.

Enough is enough, “Miss Lindsey.” If you want to invade Iran (or Pakistan, Syria, Libya, etc.) you and your fellow fiscally liberal warmonger John McCain can do it your damn selves. With your own money.

Then you can actually be the war veteran you once claimed to be …

UPDATE: Here’s another interesting take on Graham’s warmongering …
