Lindsey Graham Says Israel Should Drop Nuclear Bombs On Iran & Gaza

Sen. Lindsey Graham,

US Senator Lindsey Graham thinks that, in order to protect itself, Israel should drop nuclear bombs on Gaza and Iran.

The warmonger and neocon made his remarks over the weekend during an interview on NBC News’ “Meet the Press”.

During Sundays controversial interview Graham compared Israel’s current conflict with Hamas to the US atomic bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki during World War II.

He suggested that nuclear options could be a solution for Israel to end its ongoing conflict involving Iran and Gaza. He said “Give Israel the bombs they need to end the war. They can’t afford to lose.”

TGP reports: During the interview, Senator Graham said, “Why did we drop two bombs, nuclear bombs on Hiroshima and Nagasaki, to end a war that we couldn’t afford to lose. You don’t understand, apparently, what Israel is facing. They’re facing three groups: Iran, who has received $80 billion in aid… They’re taking that money to kill all the Jews.”

Graham argued that, like the U.S. in World War II, Israel faces existential threats that justify extreme measures: “Give Israel the bombs they need to end the war they can’t afford to lose and work with them to minimize casualties,” he said.

Kristen Welker questioned Graham on the relevance of such extreme measures in today’s technological era. She noted that modern precision weaponry should negate the need for such drastic actions.

Welker also brought up historical precedents where U.S. Presidents, including Ronald Reagan, used military aid as leverage to influence Israeli policies, suggesting that there are alternatives to outright warfare.

Senator Graham responded, “When you’re telling the world you’re going to restrict weapons delivery to the Jewish state who is fighting a three-front war for their survival, it emboldens Iran, it emboldens Hamas.”

“Historians would say, why is it okay for Reagan to do it and not President Biden?” said Welker.

Graham answered, “Why is it okay for America to drop two nuclear bombs on Hiroshima and Nagasaki to end their existential threat war? Why was it okay for us to do that? I thought it was okay. To Israel, do whatever you have to do to survive, again, military officials say the technology has changed.”
