President Barack Obama sought help from foreign leaders concerning possible sanctions for Iran while one Republican Senator said that he would be willing to go to war with the country if it would prevent it from acquiring nuclear weapon capabilities, Fox News reported.
Senator Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) warned that Iran getting a nuclear weapon may lead to a domino effect for other countries in the area acquiring this capability, according to the news outlet.
“If you open Pandora’s box, if you attack Iran, if they get a nuclear weapon you empty Pandora’s box, that’s the world we live in,” said the Senator. “So I support the option of a military option as a last resort.”
The Senator also noted that a regime change in Iran would be the best option for the U.S., and that if the country was able to get a nuclear weapon the world is going to suffer tremendously.
The Tehran Times reported that Majlis Speaker Ali Larijani, the leader of the Iranian Parliament, noted that sanctions against his country would be met with a bitter response.
