Lindsey Graham Flips Stand on Iran: “You open Pandora’s box if you attack Iran”


It seems like South Carolina Senator Lindsey Graham is suffering from serious case of Graham-nesia when it comes to his own position about Iran.  His current position is explosively different than his previous view. He must have forgotten all about it. Thankfully, there is video to remind him.

Appearing on CBS's Face The Nation on Sunday, Graham said he wanted the U.S. to work with Iran in order to help stabilize Iraq.

"We're going to probably need to their help to hold Baghdad," Graham said, while cautioning that Tehran's goal is to "create a sectarian Iraq. To have a puppet in Baghdad that is a Shia-dominated government where they control the outcome."

""But in the short term, why did we deal with Stalin? Because he was not as bad as Hitler, in our eyes," he added. "We're going to have to have some dialog with the Iranians that says let's coordinate our efforts but has some red lines with the Iranians."

Now rewind two years, when Graham again appeared on "Face the Nation." But this time, he wants to completely disarm Iran, not ask for their assistance.

"You open Pandora's box if you attack Iran. If they get a nuclear weapon, you empty Pandora's Box. That's the world we live in. I support the idea of a military option as a last resort."

Graham then explains that it's not just stopping Iran from having a nuclear weapon, it's about completely disarming Iran.

"You have to neuter this regime. Destroy their air force, sink their navy. Go after the revolutionary guard and try and get the people in the country to overthrow this regime," he said.

Ron Paul offered his perspective on Iraq as well outlining three options the U.S. can take.

Paul said in a statement, "Because of the government's foolish policy of foreign interventionism, the US is faced with two equally stupid choices: either pour in resources to prop up an Iraqi government that is a close ally with Iran, or throw our support in with al-Qaida in Iraq (as we have done in Syria). I say we must follow a third choice: ally with the American people and spend not one more dollar or one more life attempting to re-make the Middle East. Haven't we have already done enough damage?"
