In his infinite wisdom, the senior republican, neocon and AIPAC stooge, Lindsey Graham called for changing the regime in Iran not by invasion – I guess he learned his lesson from supporting Iraq war- but by…. wait for it, lunching military strike by air and sea!
He went on to explain away his policy elequently – as republicans usually do – by saying that:
“If you use military force against Iran, you’ve opened up Pandora’s box,” Graham told the American Enterprise Institute in Washington. “If you allow Iran to get a nuclear weapon, you’ve emptied Pandora’s box. I’d rather open up Pandora’s box than empty it.”
Ahmadinejad and Khamenei could not have asked for better enemies.
Of course, I do not expect any condemnation from the loud but very few self-proclaimed “Iranian experts/activists” in diaspora. Particularly those whose only job seems to be to sabotage any chance for moderation and bring about the next major conflict in the middle-east. To these individuals, anyone who is pushing back against delusional politicians like Lindsey Graham and their all powerful, war-supporting friends, must be a regime sympathizer or have some kind of secret ties to the regime.
As an Iranian, you would be foolish to call for an all out war on Iran. It’s very unpopular, and you wont be taken seriously. So what better way to hide behind harmless sounding names like “.
