Lindsey Graham’s Advice To Trump On IRAN

Graham’s message has stuck fear into the heart of every Iranian…

Make Iran ‘Feel Pain’ 

On Friday’s broadcast of “The Hugh Hewitt Show,” Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) suggested President Donald Trump take an aggressive approach in responding to Iran’s saber-rattling in the Persian Gulf.

Among the actions the South Carolina Republican U.S. Senator included sinking the Iranian Navy and attacking one of Iran’s refineries, which he said would send a message to Iran not to interfere with the shipping lanes in the Persian Gulf.

Partial transcript as follows:

HEWITT: Let’s turn to Iran. Earlier this morning, moments ago, the President of the United States said, “Iran did it;” the mine that didn’t explode “Had Iran written all over it.” He didn’t say what he is going to do, what do you think he ought to do about attacks on Gulf shipping Lindsey Graham?

GRAHAM: Make sure that the Iranians will never do it again because it hurt too much. If he doesn’t send a clear, unequivocal signal with pain attached, they will keep doing it. They are testing him. The president got out of the agreement. He’s put sanctions on Iran. He’s breaking the back of the Iranian government economically, they are pushing back, they are testing his will. One of the great minds of our time, General Keane, said there are a couple of options. One is, start sending naval escorts for commercial shipping in the Straights of Hormuz, that’s one thing to do —I don’t know how sustainable that is— the other thing is just basically sink their navy. Now, put them on notice, start escorting ships, and if there is another attack on commercial shipping in the Straights of Hormuz, just sink all these fast boats, just sink their navy.

HEWITT: That’s what President Reagan did in 1988, with Operation Praying Mantis. I’d like to hear Lindsey Graham’s assessment of this: They have a couple of major refinery complexes, maybe only two. They are attacking oil. Ought we to attack their refinery complexes because if you want to talk about bringing that country to a halt, that’s the way to do it.


GRAHAM: Well, this is why I like your show. You put options on the table that really hurt. The bottom line really here is that they are pushing back on multiple fronts now against President Trump —rocket man is still shooting rockets, Maduro is still in power, the Iranians are attacking ships in the Strait of Hormuz. I like the foreign policy of President Trump. He’s been the anti-Obama. But he’s got to get Iran put back in a box. This is a time of testing. They have hit four ships. They have attacked land-based pipelines, they haven’t felt anything yet, so if I were the president, attacking a refinery or sinking their navy would be an unequivocal signal: “I don’t want a war with Iran, but I don’t want Iran disrupting international navigation and freedom of the seas, and continue to be, you know, wrecking havoc, so, he’s got some options in the table.

    You put the Iranian Navy at the BOTTOM of the sea and your problem just might be solved. Leave us and our allies alone and you JUST might have a good day. Like the song says, “We’ve only just begun”, and I don’t mean a love song. This means our actions. THIS president (TRUMP) will take action, and he’s not playing around.

      Joey, you’re full of prunes. Iran has attacked no one. Why would they? Israel wants the US to conquer Iran for its own purposes and you want to be a good puppy; attack for Israel. Now, talk about a hate crime. Anyway, I guess this time Colin Powell isn’t needed to push another false flag on the public with you around.

        If Israel wanted to get rid of Iran they don’t need us. Iran is attacking those ships while being responsible for the deaths of 613 Americans over the years and they should be made to pay for it, as opposed to Obama who paid them. Strength yields power and leadership, ask the Reagan people. Weakness yields death and insult, ask Jimmy Carter.

    Graham needs to go. Iran is NOT a threat to anyone. The reason Israel hates Iran is because Iran refuses to allow Zionist scum into the country and set up its central bank.. like the US FED. Same thing per Syria and other sovereign countries. There is no way Iran would nuke any nation. That is completely against their Islamic faith. The US hates Iran because Israel hates Iran. The biggest threat in the Middle East is the counterfeit so-called “state of Israel.” Which, is NOT the Israel of the Bible and Jews have NO RIGHT to their own Jewish state. Thats Biblical truth. Americans need to STOP believing all the BS we are being spoon-fed on a regular basis regarding Iran and many other things. WE THE PEOPLE are being played at every turn. Wake up, Americans!!

      Sorry: Iran is a threat to all countries in the world. They export terrorists, and they are certainly progressing in the accumulation of nuclear capability. They also export Islamic radicalism every to every nation on earth to include the US. ISIS has been confirmed to have sent people through our southern border.
      Nikita Khrushchev one said that in Russia we stick the knife in and twist it. But this Kennedy, we cannot find a spot that we can stick the knife in. (Paraphrased). Iran needs to be made to understand that It cannot stick a knife into the USA. PERIOD!

      “That is completely against their Islamic faith.” Wow missy you aure are a dumb one. READ the muslim book of crayons, The Old Testament , The New Testament and then The WHOLE Bible. Their ‘faith’ is to KILL anyone who is not Islamic. How many unprovoked terrorist attacks is it going to take before you morons get it? Look at recent history (1960’s and up), and you will see HUNDREDS of terrorit attacks on peaceful people by muslims. But then it seems like you are a headline CNN enthusiast and don’t get to the TRUTH of matters.

    Sinking their navy would take care of the shipping problem and send a message, bombing a refinery would really hurt them and I think a little too far. Sink the navy, let them know the refineries are next. I guess calling sinking a entire navy baby steps is a little far fetched but I think everyone understands what I am saying.

    Missy, you’re spot-on. Iran wants no enemies. Israel cultivates them. Why should we get a bloody nose for Israel? Any aggression against Iran could be deadly for us no matter how much macho bravado we hear from Zionist shills. Even if we conquered Iran, we lose in any PR battle and commit Nuremburg offences.

    Yes…knock the sh– out of them.
    But…if you do choose to engage, then DO IT RIGHT!

    NO MISTAKES that make you look foolish…just go right in there and hit them with such a blow that “It’s all over with”!

    Take no prisoners…

    As they sink, just turn your backs and don’t look back…war ain’t for gentlemen!

    War is for winning!

    Military action against Iran is necessary to get the Iranians who hate the alien islam ideology to overthrow the mullahs and ayatollahs !

    I’d like to see us sink all their military craft, decimate their air force, destroy all known nuclear facilities, napalm their Revolutionary Guard, & level their oil fields. Europeans who have sided with them during the embargo deserve to suffer along with the mullahs & their terrorist henchmen. Our so-called “friends” can get their fuel elsewhere.

    I believe that the lack of preparedness the Trump and his diplomats is a particular problem wherever they set their sights, without end goals. The ornery countries realize that we don’t have a coherent strategy and push back as they like.
    Another problem is that these are sovereign countries and the US shouldn’t and can’t bully them.
