Top Senators Give Conditions Under Which U.S. Military Will Strike Iran



Over the weekend, top U.S. Senators said they are introducing a bipartisan resolution calling for military strikes against Iran if Iranian-backed terrorists in the Middle East kill any U.S. soldiers or if Hezbollah opens up a second front against Israel.

Sens. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) and Richard Blumenthal (D-CT) made the comments during a CNN interview Sunday morning with Dana Bash on “State of the Union.” The news comes after there have been at least 31 attacks from Iranian-backed terrorists on U.S. forces in Iraq and Syria in the last two weeks, according to a report from The Wall Street Journal.

“It basically says, if the war expands, if Hezbollah opens up a second front in the north against Israel in a substantial way to overwhelm Iron Dome, then we should hit the Islamic Republic of Iran,” Graham said. “There is no Hamas without the Ayatollahs’ support. There is no Hezbollah without the Ayatollahs’ support. The great Satan in the region is not Israel or the United States. It’s Iran.”

Graham said that he and Blumenthal just returned from the region and that Israel had asked them to deter Iran from entering the war as focus on destroying the Hamas terrorist organization inside Gaza.

“If any of our troops are killed in Syria and Iraq by Iranian-backed militias, I think that’s an expansion of the war,” Graham said. “So, the resolution puts Iran on notice that all this military force in the region will be coming after you if you expand this war by activating Hezbollah or killing an American through your proxies in Syria and Iraq. And they need to hear that. They need to believe that.”
