Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) is running for president and has some insane ideas about how to handle and use the United States military. He would fire any military leader that didn’t share his desire for military conquest, reported Addicting Info.
Graham cited a Washington Post article that noted how military leaders warned President Obama against sending combat troops to fight the Islamic State. This angered the war hawk Graham, who aired his grievances about the article this week on Face the Nation.
“I’m dying to hear from our military leadership on how we degrade and destroy ISIL with the current strategy,” said Graham. “So now would be a good time to call [Defense Secretary] Ash Carter and our military leaders to our Capitol Hill and say, ‘If you’ve got a problem with what we’re doing, let me know. But tell me how this is working.’”
Graham has a 33-year military career under his belt, but he’s far from a combat or warfare expert. He was a military attorney.
“If our military leadership thinks we’re on path to degrade and destroy ISIL, they need to be fired,” he continued.
The senator stubbornly insists that the Islamic State was created because of Obama’s withdrawal of military troops. He’s incorrect. The Islamic State rose from the ashes of Al Qaeda and is bolstered by fearless religious extremism. Graham still supports the action taken in Iraq years ago and yearns for more war.
He’s a tyrannical warlord who has openly expressed his intent to misuse the military. In March, he said that he would have the military march on Congress if it didn’t do what he wanted.
“The first thing I would do if I were President of the United States, I wouldn’t let Congress leave town until we fix this [the country],” he said. “I would literally use the military to keep them in if I had to.”
