Senator Lindsey Graham (R-SC) show us just how much of a warmonger he really is.

Hawkish talk from Senator Lindsey Graham, at the Halifax International Security Forum Saturday, electrified the group, when Graham outlined in no uncertain terms, his  advice to the president if sanctions failed to deter Iran’s push towards nuclear weapons.

Graham didn’t mince words with  his steps to “… sink their Navy, destroy their Air Force and deliver a decisive blow to their Revolutionary Guard; in other words, neuter that regime.”

As a proponent of the just-war tradition, I cannot support Senator Graham’s words.  Just because Iran may or may not have the capability to make nuclear bombs is not enough to justify a strike against Iran, there has been no actual injury to the United States or any of her allies.  Other means need to be exhausted before we even consider the military option.

To strike at Iran and “neuter” their military at this juncture show just how much of a warmonger Lindsey Graham is.  No one should take this advice seriously.

  1. It’s an awful slippery slope from Just War theory to being a Neo-Con. Bush proved that. I’m just sayin…..

  2. Frankly, you people disgust me. Jesus didn’t say to turn the other cheek or be peacemakers. He said that he came to bring the sword and to kill those whom he doesn’t like. You hippies and your Gospel message of redemption, human value, and community. Makes me just sick. I say bomb everyone and let God sort them out!

    Right BCT?

  3. @Joel,

    You are just on a roll today!

    and

    BCT,

    Now you are just arguing to pull on people’s emotion. Not using reason, like Just War theorists and Imperialists accuse pacifists of.

    • Rod,

      To be fair, not all of us Just War theorists accuse pacifists of pulling on people’s emotions.

      I happen to have a lot of respect for pacifists (not to be confused with passive-ists) and was taught the just war tradition by a pacifist.

      • Actually I have been invited to do a guest post on pacifism. Do not worry. I will address your issue that “pacifism is robust enough to confront evil.”
