(Video) Lindsey Graham Proposes U.S. Start Bombing Iran: ‘Time to Take the War to the Ayatollah’s Backyard’

Senator Lindsey Graham (R-SC) suggested that the United States consider bombing Iranian oil refineries if the Iranian-funded terror group Hamas follows through on its promise to start executing hostages in the Gaza Strip.

In addition to murdering and raping hundreds of Israeli civilians over the weekend, terrorists took hostages, including Americans back to Gaza as hostages. Since then, they’ve threatened to execute those held captive every time Israel launches a retaliatory airstrike that kills civilians….CONTINUE READING

On Fox News, Graham reacted to that threat by issuing one of his own to the Iranian government.

“Well, for every Israeli or American hostage executed by Hamas, we should take down an Iranian oil refinery. The only way you’re going to keep this war from escalating is to hold Iran accountable,” began the famously-hawkish Graham.

He continued:

How much more death and destruction do we have to take from the Iranian regime? I am confident this was planned and funded by the Iranians. Hamas is a bunch of animals who deserve to be treated like animals. So if I was Israel, I would go in on the ground. There is no truce to be had here. I would dismantle Hamas. This is the best opportunity Israel has to destroy Hamas. Take it to the Iranians. If you harm one American in Syria by using your Iranian militia against us in Syria, if you escalate the war by urging Hezbollah to attack Israel in the north, if Hamas kills one American Israeli hostage, we’re going to blow up your oil refineries and put you out of business. It is now time to take the war to the Ayatollah’s backyard.

At least 9 Americans have been confirmed to have died in the attack, which was characterized by the intentional killing of civilians as well as mass rape. An unknown number of Americans are missing and have been taken hostage.
