I don't know about you, but I can more comfortably contemplate the dying beats of my own heart than fathom the waning thumps of the drums of American war. There's just something about the idea of an America not locked in the grips of interminable foreign battle that sends cold shivers down my spine.
"Six months ago I was really worried that our party was drifting," Graham said, in an apparent reference to some Republicans' calls for pulling out of Afghanistan. "Last night was a hawkish debate that talked about listening to commanders."
Graham said he agreed with former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney, former House Speaker Newt Gingrich (Ga.) and other Republican presidential candidates who said during a foreign policy-themed debate Saturday night that if other options failed the U.S. should attack Iran to prevent it from getting nuclear weapons, calling a nuclear Iran "the road to Armageddon."
That was really terrifying back when most of the GOP was all anti-war and stuff, wasn't it? However, that back then Obama was expanding military efforts in Afghanistan, so what were they to do? Thankfully, the President is now pulling us out of Iraq, so the Republican Party is free to resume calling for heads on spikes.
Naturally, I feel much safer now.
