South Carolina senator Lindsey Graham is a man I suspect pisses his pants on a regular basis.
During na appearance on Fox News (where else?) Sunday, Graham called the president “delusional” for believing that ISIS can be defeated without boots on the ground. Personally, I don’t think they can be defeated with boots on the ground, but I digress. But then he then went from me half-agreeing with him to then predicting certain doom for all mankind.
Comparing the estimated 30,000 ISIS fighters to the Nazis, Graham warned that “this idea we’ll never had any boots to defeat them in Syria is fantasy.” He argued that given the growth of the “radical Islamic army” and its control of territory in northern Iraq and Syria, “it’s going to take an army to beat a army.” “This is ISIL versus mankind,” he said, using another acronym for the group. […]
“This president needs to rise to the occasion before we all get killed back here at home.”
I definitely think that ISIS is a terrorist threat to western nations, mostly Europe, and I also believe it’s a threat to women, children, and other civilians who live within the territory they occupy. In addition to the beheading of numerous individuals, unspeakable violence is being committed against women as they’re removed from their homes forced into sex slavery.
Don’t get me wrong, I don’t take the group lightly, but the idea that ISIS is a threat to “mankind” or even to the United States as a whole, is absurd and hysterical.
Someone this unhinged has no business influencing foreign policy and Graham should seriously consider looking into a mirror before he accuses someone else of being delusional.
