Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C) claimed on today's Fox News Sunday that President Obama's decision not to send in ground troops to fight ISIS/ISIL would mean that Americans would be killed by the terrorist group in the U.S.
“It’s going to take an army to beat an army, and this idea we’ll never have any boots on the ground to defeat them in Syria is fantasy, and all this has come home to roost over the last three years of incompetent decisions,” said Sen. Graham, noted RawStory.com (video below) .
“It’s delusional in the way that they approach this,” added Sen. Graham, who strongly supported the failed invasion of Iraq by President Bush.
Later in the broadcast, Sen. Graham grew irate, “This is a war we’re fighting. This is not a counter-terrorism operation. This is not Somalia, this is not Yemen!"
However, the U.S. has not declared war on ISIS/ISIL.
"This is a turning point in the war on terror, our strategy will fail yet again. This president needs to rise to the occasion before we all get killed back here at home!” warned Sen. Graham. “They will open the gates of hell to spill out on the world. This is not a Sunni versus Sunni problem. This is ISIL versus mankind.”
An NBC News/Wall Street Journal/Annenberg poll released today found that 68 percent of those polled have “very little” or “just some” confidence in President Obama's plans to degrade and eliminate ISIS/ISIL. However, 62 percent of voters support the president's decision to send U.S. military advisors and carry on a bombing campaign against ISIS/ISIL in Iraq and Syria.
