Lindsey Graham Should Have Visited Iran

Email Print

Senator Graham wants “An Iran controlled by its people, not some theocracy.” He has said of Iran

“And if military force is ever employed [by the U.S.], it should be done in a decisive fashion. The Iranian government’s ability to wage conventional warfare against its neighbors and our troops in the region should not exist. They should not have one plane that can fly or one ship that can float.”

Has Senator Graham examined the continuing tragedy of Fallujah and its people in order to understand what one of his previous wars has wrought? Or he is an ignorant man? Or has he turned a blind eye? Or doesn’t he care? Or is he so full of himself, so distant from common people, and so taken up with abstractions of power that he is living in another world?

If he’d visit Iran, he’d find that its people are going about their business much as in America. Their degree of “control” over Iran is not much different from what an American can claim is his control over America.
