From CBS' Face the Nation, if it's Sunday, it seems it has to include either Sen. Lindsey Graham and/or one or more of his fearmongering cohorts, John McCain and Joe Lieberman to come on the air and rattle the sabers for war with Iran. This week it was Graham predicting "armageddon" if heaven forbid Iran is allowed to attain a nuclear weapon.

SCHIEFFER: Lindsey Graham, I want you to listen to this because something else that got a lot of attention last night was Iran, and what to do about its nuclear capability. And we saw Mitt Romney who is one of the Republican front-runners say, "If push came to shove and nothing else worked, we'd have to take military action against Iran." Listen to what he said here.

ROMNEY: And if all else fails, if after all of the work we've done, there's nothing else we can do besides mil-- take military action, then of course you take military action. It is unacceptable for Iran to have a nuclear weapon.

SCHIEFFER: Okay, Senator Graham, does that mean that we might get in a war with-- with Iran over whether it is-- that would be required to take out their nuclear capability? Would you be for that?

GRAHAM: Totally. Absolutely without any doubt, the Iranians if they develop a nuclear weapon, Bob, the whole region is going to want a nuclear weapon, then you march down the road of armageddon. 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. So I support the idea of a military option at the last resort. But now their capability is so redundant, you'd have to do more than go after the nuclear program. You have to neuter this regime, destroy the air force, sink their navy, go after the revolutionary guard and try to get to people in the country to overthrow the regime. We need a regime change. If they get a nuclear weapon, the world is going to go into darkness.
