HALIFAX, Nova Scotia -- A leading U.S. senator on defense issues says any military strike on Iran to stop its nuclear program must also strive to take out Iran's military capability.
Sen. Lindsey Graham, a South Carolina Republican who sits on the Armed Services Committee and the Homeland Security Committee, said Saturday the U.S. should consider sinking the Iranian navy, destroying its air force and delivering a decisive blow to the Revolutionary Guard.
He says they should neuter the regime, destroy its ability to fight back and hope Iranians will take a chance to take back their government.
Americans are DONE with the wars, but he wants to start ANOTHER one? In the HOPE that the citizens of Iran will do something?

The best I could find about costs associated with Presidential trips to Asia is this article from Politico. Insterstingly enough there is only information on Clinton's trips abroad, and not on Bush?
A Clinton trip to six countries in Africa in 1998 rang up at $42.8 million, most of that for military aircraft costs. A trip to Chile came in at $10.5 million. A trip to China that year cost $18.8 million.
Even accounting for inflation, I'm not seeing where past presidents have incurred 2 BILLION DOLLARS over the course of a 10 DAY trip abroad!!
