Sen. Lindsey Graham: ‘The world is literally about to blow up’
The Washington Times ^ | 1/29/14 | Jessica Chasmar

Posted on 01/29/2014 12:54:53 PM PST by Nachum

Sen. Lindsey Graham blasted President Obama for the foreign policy portion of his State of the Union address Tuesday night.

“The world is literally about to blow up,” the South Carolina Republican told Roll Call. “The world as I know was not remotely described by the president.”

“Syria is a contagion … Iraq is disintegrating. The whole region is moving toward chaos, and we’re doing nothing. We’re talking about limiting drones?” he continued.

“I hope he will leave a residual force in Afghanistan [so] they can do the job, because if he doesn’t,

Hopefully a political IED will take him out before he can supply Al Qaeda more than they already are.

That’s a good line, Senator, even with the unnecessary use of ‘literally’. I may have to borrow it. We’ll see what ‘Blow Up’ looks like it living color.

Too bad he’s been sucking his thumb on Benghazi

As much as they think they can control that, the Mid East guys see that we are wimps

It was a major international incident. They killed our embassy people

The whole region is now out of our control

Graham as the leading opposition senator is responsible for not taking care of it, NOT the democrat bullies, who we know don’t care about these things. They are stupid. Hillary is stupid

Limp-wrist Grammesty performing his best Captain Obvious impression. Thanks for the head’s up, nimrod... it’s been that way since the jug-eared, ignorant and muslim-enabling traitor has been in office.

Graham was one of the cheerleaders for getting involved in Libya in the first place. He couldn’t explain why but he wanted somebody to fight.

Gee Lindsey luv, maybe you guys shouldn’t have looked the other way when the US supplied countless billions of $$$ and weapons for the lovely peaceful “Arab Spring”. Maybe the Middle East wouldn’t be falling apart. Maybe your world wouldn’t be about to blow up either. Now, go have a heartwarming discussion about this with your “partner”. I’m sure he’s got your back!

AGREE! We have been measured and found wanting. We have no street cred with them. This is just what Obama wanted all along.

Yes, I agree with Graham. Things are just running wild and Bambi is standing up there soliloquizing (in his halting, permastoned sounding voice) about totally unimportant things or about the evil of “the opposition,” meaning the GOP, not al Qaeda.

He may very well be correct but Lindseys just doing his old conservative soft-shoe right now. He’ll get right back on his compromising good foot first chance he gets.

I’m voting his ass out next November no matter what he says or does between now and then. He’s done.

The "why" was because John McCain told him to...

None dare call it a NWO conspiracy any longer but tin foil hat be damned. As far as I know the little weasel Senator was the only one in DC who said anything publicly about a possible EMP attack on an east cost city. That was just before the missing nuke story was leaked which was followed by the Army General in charge of the east cost nukes getting fired by obozo. I'm sure there is more to that story than the public will ever know. According to Pastor Lindsey Williams, the NWO elites will always, but surreptitiously, divulge what is about to happen on the world stage, particularly here in America. I surmise in this instance that the little twerp again making a statement about a possible mass disaster may have outed himself as their deliverer of coming events staged by the NWO elites. The term Weasel fits him like a glove and no, I have no evidence to support my suspicion but anything is possible. But there is one thing that is uncontrovertable, the US is in the cross-hairs of the communists and the NWO elites.

Is this the same Lindsey who predicted ‘Terrorists could detonate a nuke in Charleston harbor,’ the same week radio hosts say Soebarkah was trying to sneak 3 loose nukes onto trucks skipping protocol?

Are all Lindsey’s EMP and ‘blow up’ threats an attempt to spook China that their investment (CONUS) will go up in flames unless they make another payment to somebody?

Who the hell is he trying to spook?

0bama starts WWIII (first posted on Sep. 12, 2012)

The move is on to consolidate the Muslim world under the Muslim Brotherhood.

People still believe 0bama's foreign policy is simply bumbling and incompetence.

0bama has set Israel up the bomb...

Sept. 11, 2012

Netanyahu gets the cold shoulder.

U.S. has no right to block Israel on Iran: Netanyahu

The embassy in Cairo puts out an apology for a movie most of the rioters know nothing about.

Former deputy national security adviser: US response to embassy attack ‘bizarre and unacceptable’

0bama sent a letter to Tehran assuring them that the U.S. will do nothing to help Israel. That takes that off of the table removing a big worry for them that might have made them think twice. Iran is good to go now with 0bama's blessing.

We don't support Israeli attack, US tells Iran

The "movie" turns out to be a red herring excuse to cover for the rioters.

CNN: Protests against film a ‘diversion. Attack was planned’

Quite a day of unfortunate coincidences. Israel was rebuffed and there were signals being sent to the MB and Iran. 0bama is giving the "go ahead" to the Muslim world to take out Israel.

Obama Admin Transferred 3,000 Detainees to Afghan Gov't Control Day Before 9/11

UNREAL… Obama Invites Egypt’s Muslim Brotherhood President to Meet Next Week – Refuses to Meet Netanyahu

The White House hands Iran's Ahmadinejad a global megaphone

REPORTS: No Live Ammo for Marines

-------------------------------------------------------

CNN: Protests against film a ‘diversion. Attack was planned’

Egypt intelligence warns (on Sept 4th) of attacks on Israel, US embassies

Congress was warned about Libya last month

-------------------------------------------------------

U.S. denies premeditation report
"The Obama administration is flatly denying a blaring British newspaper report that the U.S. diplomats in Libya were killed as a result of a “continuing security breach,” and that “credible information” about possible attacks had been ignored. A U.S. official told POLITICO: “There's no intelligence indicating that the attack in Benghazi was premeditated.”"

Is that all incompetence? Or did it take planning to make all that happen?
Cloward & Pliven strategy and community organizing on a global scale?

This isn't just about getting re-elected, that's certainly a side benefit, this is about the big enchilada. No more Israel. The United States of the Muslim Brotherhood in the ME. ie the new Caliphate.

Lindsey Graham wants insane democrats who have created this horror to DO more?

Oh God help us please.

Doesn't Graham know Obama and his merry band of idiots can make the situation worse? Worse than it is now. Much worse. Kerry's making threats to Israel - for God's sake - what new horror will that lead to?
