Do Republican Senators Want the Arab World to Hate America?

…Or maybe just to hate Obama? You decide.  The U.S. should launch a “full-out military strike” on Iran so Israel doesn’t have to, says Sen. Saxby Chambliss (R-GA). Why not let Israel defend itself? “It’s too much pressure to put on Israel,” says Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC). “”I think an Israeli attack on Iran is a nightmare for the world, because it will rally the Arab world around Iran and they’re not aligned now.”

Mr. Graham’s silent syllogism renders this conclusion: The U.S. should attack Israel so the Arab world will rally against us. Then we can blame it on Obama.

Remember how Bush couldn’t figure out “why they hate us”? This dynamite duo from the GOP lays that question to rest (and proves that Ron Paul was right, naturally).

Footnote to Sen. Graham: The Iranians are Persians, not Arabs.  Can you comment intelligently on that fact for thirty coherent seconds, please?
