Serious Jokes

Posted in Uncategorized by fartashphoto on November 7, 2010

A leading U.S. senator on defense issues says any military strike on Iran to stop its nuclear program must also strive to take out Iran’s military capability.

Sen. Lindsey Graham, a South Carolina Republican who sits on the Armed Services Committee and the Homeland Security Committee, said Saturday the U.S. should consider sinking the Iranian navy, destroying its air force and delivering a decisive blow to the Revolutionary Guard.

He says they should neuter the regime, destroy its ability to fight back and hope Iranians will take a chance to take back their government.

His remarks stunned many in the audience at the Halifax International Security forum.

Mottaki also dismissed Senator Lindsey Graham’s remark that Washington was facing a possible war with Iran. “Don’t take the American senator’s remark too seriously. He wanted to joke,” he said.

The Obama administration, through top military officials, has made it clear that all options are on the table.

Iran said on Sunday it has informed Ankara that Tehran is ready to hold talks in Turkey with the six world powers over its controversial nuclear programme, turning to a country seen as an ally. But that’s probably the continuum of a cliché game of wasting more and more time, like the past 16 years which Iran started enriching.
