Lindsey Graham Wants 20,000 U.S. Troops In Iraq And Syria

It appears that – with few exceptions – the 2016 elections will be an exercise where candidates jockey for the title of biggest warmonger. Of course, that contest would have been won long ago if rhetoric and war psychosis were the only criteria.

SC Senator Lindsey Graham has indeed received a head start in the competition for his regular incitements to war, most vociferous support of foreign entanglements, and the most psychotic suggestions for US foreign policy.

Graham recently attempted to clinch the win by giving his “first major foreign policy speech” at the Atlantic Council “think tank” offices in Washington, D.C. Graham’s speech was designed to stand as a preview as to what he would do if elected President, a speech that shortly turned into a list of countries he would bomb, countries he would invade, and countries he would both bomb and invade.

Graham then went on to pronounce that he believed the U.S. should commit 20,000 troops to the Syria and Iraq regions in order to “fight ISIS,” the same terrorist organization that his friend John McCain helped organize, train, fund, and direct.

Graham wants to increase the number of U.S. “military advisers” on the ground in Iraq from 3,500 to 10,000 and to include “special forces.” He wants a similar number contributed on the ground in Syria.

Graham also laughably stated that Iran poses “the greatest existential threat to the world order” today and that, if the Iranians refused to knuckle under and accept the U.S. demands as opposed to a deal (which itself is an insult to a sovereign nation), he would commit the United States to yet another war.

“I don’t want a war, but if that’s what you want you’re going to lose it,” he said, “We’re going to sink your navy and shoot your Air Force down.”

Graham’s statements resembled more the playing out of a psychopathic childish fantasy than the statements of a lucid candidate for public office, most notably that of the presidency. But, of course, when has Graham ever acted lucid? And, for that matter, when have Americans ever demanded lucidity from their leaders?

  1. Graham is the mortification of many, many South Carolinians. Politicians put those cardboard signs along the roads and at intersections at election time and then everyone votes for a name they recognize. Graham has NEVER done anything constructive for the people of SC. He is a danger to us and to humanity.

  2. gRAHam has no credentials of any kind to be addressing the matter of US Combat…I have been there…nam, 1969….Army….combat US56639487….he could not even get into such a unit as mine nor would he attempt to do so……………..and he is calling out this garbage! He is a mouth piece for the Regime ….. nothing more….Disgusting!

    South Carolinians had the chance to replace him but with the educational system today the morons have trouble finding jobs but take the time to vote even if they have no clue what the issues of today are. Name recognition takes precedence in a dumbed down society.

      You make valid points, assuming the votes are accurately and honestly counted. But our nation is rampant with incompetent, idiotic assholes in high elected office such as Lindsey girl that are career politicians for decades . It is incredulous that this circumstance could occur to this extent despite the very real deficiencies of the citizenry you allude to. I’m more inclined to attribute this ‘success’ by such vile degenerates to electronic vote rigging and fraud.

    But before they go, Lindsey demands to give each one a personal health inspection… ‘Now COUGH!’.

  5. he is just just another stupid war mongering RHINO.

  6. “Old white men,” similar to senator Lindsay Graham, dominated the activities list of “Second Mile”, the program led by “Jerry Sandusky,” chief pedophile of the Penn State, pedophile debauchery. Such pedophiles are the cause of American patriot heroes, such as PFC Bradley Manning, to develop gender confusion. “Senator” Lindsay Graham gained notoriety as a USAF reserve officer in Charleston, S.C., for over 20 years.
    The following link provides revealing information. Goto: ; then, skip down to SANDUSKY.

  7. Here’s a better idea. Just arm every Iraqi citizen.

    Does he want his kids to go? Does he want to walk through some crowd and point out who is first to die and who comes home with one arm? Our children are just cannon fodder and the ones that survive his wars are criminalized. Fight for what, market share? israel?
