Graham: Iran Needs Threat of 'All-Out Assault' to Change

Graham said he has offered a resolution providing Israel with military and economic support if it decides to confront Iran. At the same time he criticized the Obama administration for what he views as a weak response to the Iran threat, despite repeated White House promises to back up Israel.

“On foreign policy, I’ve never seen our friends so afraid and our enemies more bold,” Graham said, adding that while the president “talks tough” the words “must be matched by our actions.”

“If they (Iran) believe there’s the possibility of an all-out assault by the American military, that’s the only way they’re going to change,” Graham said.

Israel has “limited military capabilities” despite fielding a fine force, Graham said. The knowledge that the U.S. would use military force “would take some pressure off Israel.”

“I certainly can’t think of a more critical time in our nation’s history,” Graham said. “There is no accommodating radicalism.”
