  1. I can't choose; I will have to opt for all three, plus a remarkably blinkered understanding of history, and a six-year-old boy's idea of how to solve problems.

  2. “The last thing America wants is another military conflict, but the last thing the world needs is a nuclear-armed Iran... Containment is off the table.”

    A clear case of ‘wants’ disquised as ‘needs’.

    "If you use military force against Iran, you've opened up Pandora's box," Graham told the American Enterprise Institute in Washington. "If you allow Iran to get a nuclear weapon, you've emptied Pandora's box. I'd rather open up Pandora's box than empty it”.

    Someone might inform Graham that Pandora opened the large jar (pithos) out of curiosity, and unintentionally released all the evils of the world. Graham seeks to intentionally open the “box” - yet, opening Pandora’s jar releases all the evil, and leaves only hope inside. By his own admission, Graham does not want to “empty it”; for Graham, there is only war and evil - there is no hope.
