Two US Senators, one from each side of the aisle laid out two reasons why the United States would mount an attack against Iran.
I seriously doubt it because Iran has Biden in their hip pocket. Senators Lindsey Graham and Richard Blumenthal announced with Dana Bash on CNN. There has been no response from CNN yet because they are still trying to figure out how to pound Graham without harming Blumenthal.
The segment comes after Hamas murdered 1,400 Israelis in an unprecedented terrorist attack on October 7th. Over 5,000 were wounded and another 240 are believed to be hostages taken from Israel.
Hezbollah, who couldn’t exist without Iran, much like Hamas has launched small-scale attacks on Israel while waiting for Iran give them the green light to launch a major offensive.
“It basically says, if the war expands, if Hezbollah opens up a second front in the north against Israel in a substantial way to overwhelm Iron Dome, then we should hit the Islamic Republic of Iran. There is no Hamas without the Ayatollahs’ support. There is no Hezbollah without the Ayatollahs’ support. The great Satan in the region is not Israel or the United States. It’s Iran.”
“If any of our troops are killed in Syria and Iraq by Iranian-backed militias, I think that’s an expansion of the war.
So, the resolution puts Iran on notice that all this military force in the region will be coming after you if you expand this war by activating Hezbollah or killing an American through your proxies in Syria and Iraq. And they need to hear that. They need to believe that.”
Graham and Blumenthal have just returned from the Middle East. They claim that Israel begged them to prevent Iran from entering the war.
Senators Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., and Richard Blumenthal, D-Conn., plan to introduce a resolution on Monday that will recommend the U.S. launch military strikes on Iran if Hezbollah, Iran’s largest proxy, opens up a second front in the war with Israel.
The senators appeared on CNN’s State of the Union to explain what is included in the non-binding resolution.
“It basically says if the war expands, if Hezbollah opens up a second front in the north against Israel in a substantial way, to overwhelm the Iron Dome, then we should hit the Islamic Republic of Iran. There is no Hamas without the Ayatollah’s support. There’s no Hezbollah without the Ayatollah’s support,” Graham said.
“It’s aggressive, but it’s absolutely necessary,” Blumenthal said.
As tensions rise along Israel’s northern border with Hezbollah in Lebanon, the senators stressed the importance for action. This resolution coincides with increased hostilities as Iran’s proxy forces in Syria and Iraq intensify their attacks on U.S. troops stationed in these regions.
“The resolution puts Iran on notice that all this military force in the region will be coming after you if you expand this war by activating Hezbollah or killing an American through your proxies in Syria and Iraq,” Graham said. “They need to hear that.”
