Graham advises Trump to ‘take out’ Iranian navy and oil refineries: ‘We’re headed to a conflict in next 10 days’

By Jon Dougherty

(NationalSentinel) GOP Sen. Lindsey Graham had some tough advice for President Donald Trump on Wednesday should the Iranians make good on new threats to begin large-scale uranium enrichment and attack more tankers in the Persian Gulf — strike back against Tehran’s economic and military assets.

“My ‘red line’ is if there’s any more disruption of shipping in the Strait of Hormuz that’s linked to Iran,” the South Carolina Republican said. “Take out their navy, bomb their refineries if there’s any more attacks on American interests.

“Go after Iran so that they’ll…feel pain,” he continued. “I’m not talking about invading Iran, I’m not talking about a land invasion. If they go back into the enrichment business at a level that would lead to a nuclear weapon, we need to sit down with Israel and other allies and come up with a way to stop it.”

Graham noted that Israel cannot “afford” to allow Iran to develop a nuclear weapon for its own national security. He also said that Iran, by its actions, was attempting to drive a wedge between the U.S. and its European allies, the latter of whom have been reluctant to publicly blame Iran for last week’s tanker attacks, despite U.S. Central Command (CENTCOM) releasing video evidence of an Iranian patrol boat removing an unexploded mine from one of the targeted tankers.

Iran on Monday issued the new enrichment threat three days after attacks on two oil tankers. The threat led POTUS Trump to order 1,000 more U.S. troops to the Middle East, vowing once more to never allow Iran to develop a nuclear weapon.

The New York Times reported:

Iran’s Atomic Energy Organization said that within 10 days the country will have produced and kept in its stockpiles more low-enriched uranium — the sort used to fuel power plants — than allowed by the 2015 containment deal. The agency also left open the possibility that it might soon begin enriching the uranium to higher levels of purity, edging it closer to what would be necessary to build a nuclear weapon.

Critics have complained that by pulling out of the Obama-era ‘nuclear deal,’ Trump put Iran back on a path to developing a nuclear weapon. But the president and his supporters note the deal signed between the Obama administration, Iran, and five other European nations was not strong enough to prevent Tehran from developing a weapon over time. Also, they note that the Iranians have been cheating on the agreement from the outset.

In his Fox News interview, Graham said Trump should exert maximum diplomatic and military pressure to prevent Iran’s bomb development.

“The best thing the president can do is stop that, and how do you stop that to make Iran understand you’re not going to let that happen? I think he should put their oil refineries on a target list, he should look at sinking the Iranian navy if they attack shipping again,” Graham said.

“But what I worry most about is a conflict between Israel and Iran,” he continued. “And we’re gonna come to Israel’s aid of that happens.”

Asked if POTUS Trump “is ready to do that,” Graham — who says he talks to the president a lot — replied, “He’s had it with Iran.”

“I think he’s going to stop them from getting a nuclear weapon. I think he’s going to stop them from disrupting the flow of oil and blowing up the pipelines of other nations,” Graham continued. “He doesn’t want a conflict but he’s about to run out of options here.”

Then he added: “Remember this if you remember nothing else about this interview: Israel is not going to allow the ayatollah to build a nuclear weapon to destroy the state of Israel, nor should they. That’s what’s about to happen in the next 10 days.

“We’re headed to a conflict here between the Ayatollah, who’s a murderous thug, Israel, and maybe the United States and the rest of the world,” Graham continued.

“I know Bibi [Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu] very well. He is not gonna sit on the sidelines and let the second Holocaust” occur, he added. “It’s not gonna happen.”

The ball is in Iran’s court.

What a load of hog wash, turn this around to say Israhell has nuclear weapons and the US will do what they tell them to do. These 2, as well as the UK, are the biggest supporters of Terrorism in the world!

What the hell is the US doing invading sovereign states halfway around the world? The UN needs to take a stand but are fully controlled by those behind the scenes. Their forcing Trumps hand to do their bidding, get rid of these stupid war pig advisors.

Oh look, a surrender monkey. We aren’t going to invade Iran, no need. And Iran isn’t going to produce a nuclear weapon since its intentions for use are well established. Deal with it.

We don’t need to go to war with Iran to cripple them. Targeted strikes can disable them just fine. But other countries can’t be allowed to shoot down our aircraft without consequence.

If the US is going to get into a war with Iran, flatten the place. Quickly and decisively. When the radiation dies down, we can rebuild US oil refineries there and take the oil for ourselves.

RINO Lindsey needs to focus on the invasion of THIS country’s southern border. THAT is where US troops should be deployed.

Tell Putin that we are going to destroy all of Iran’s oil facilities, air bases, communications, power generation and their navy in 12 hours.

Tell Putin that if they would like to de-escalate the situation then they must get rid of all the Mullahs and their revolutionary guards, NOW…

Find a way to stop it, really? You kill a snake by cutting off its head. Fifty phucking years Iran has been attacking us. We are fighting terrorists around the globe supplied, trained and financed by Iranians for 17 years. We need a three month air campaign to bomb these rag heads back into the 7th/c. Remember Kosovo? Target the Iranian Revolutionary Guard, all their facilities, bases and all their known assets, all government facilities and assets, any and all enrichment sites, naval bases, ships and ports, missile sites and air facilities, bridges and railways, allow nothing to move on… Read more »

The “holocaust” is Insurance Fraud. If you apply for a disability claim from an insurance company or, especially, the government, you have to PROVE you have been injured, REPEATEDLY. The insurance companies and government do not just “take your word for it” and never question you again. Israel SOLD the Holocaust for Political Leverage and Monetary Reparations, Israel itself opened the Holocaust up to questioning when they SOLD it. Israel FEARS the TRUTH about the NON-holoCOST because the MONEY would dry up, or WORSE have to be RETURNED. Never FORGIVE, Never FORGET, the SHOAH of 1.5MILLION Armenian Christians under the… Read more »

How can anyone listen to the loudmouth self serving Graham? He’s been a cheerleader for military action forever. He’s a fake Trump supporter giving the President a 10 day deadline, what arrogance. He makes noise for votes. The Iraq War was a disaster for the party. Lindsey is a pro-immigration extremist on our borders. No conservative that has paid attention to him for years believes a word he says. The others are being manipulated.
