Lindsey Graham Wants “Boots On The Ground” In Syria




U.S. Sen. Lindsey Graham appeared on yet another Washington, D.C. talk show this week (shocker, right?) to argue in favor of sending American troops into Syria.

“This idea that we’re never going to have boots on the ground in Syria is fantasy,” Graham said on Fox News Sunday . “All this has come home to roost after the last three years of incompetent decisions.”

The warmongering, fearmongering “Republican” has been pushing hard for war in Syria for the last year … albeit against different enemies.  Last year, Graham wanted America’s military to fight alongside radical jihadists affiliated with the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS).  This year he wants to fight against  ISIS.

Well, not him obviously … he wants to spend your  blood and treasure toward that end.

“There is no way in hell you can form an army on the ground to go into Syria to destroy (ISIS) without a substantial American component,” Graham said.

And there you have it …

We’ll at least give Graham credit for not sugarcoating his slavish devotion to America’s military-industrial complex.  But if you think this sort of invasion is going to make America safer, we would encourage you to ponder the $6 trillion (and thousands of lives) lost in Iraq and Afghanistan.

All that did – according to Graham – was give rise to an even more powerful enemy.

Imagine what the War on Terror II will do …
