REPORTER: When you say the U.S. Will aid Israel. What does it mean? Military involvement?

GRAHAM: 100%. If they go back into the enrichment business that puts them on an accelerated path to a bomb and Israel has to defend itself against the threat, I’m confident we’ll be there.


GRAHAM: Nobody wants to get there. I’m also confident that we’ll protect the Strait of Hormuz and we’ll protect American military personnel and civilians on the ground. I’m confident that if there is a war with Iran, they lose. I’m confident it would be very devastating to the region. It will not be pretty. Don’t want to go there. But what more do you expect the president to do? He sent the Japanese prime minister to try to start negotiations and they blow up a Japanese tanker. I don’t know what to say.
