‘Next 9-11 in the making’ if Iraq collapses, says Sen. Lindsey Graham (VIDEO)
Biz Pac Review ^ | June 13 2014 | Richard Berkow

Posted on 06/13/2014 8:34:50 AM PDT by PoloSec

A highly agitated U.S. Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., emerged from a top-secret Armed Services Committee meeting with Pentagon brass, fearful that another 9-11 was in the works.

“The briefing was chilling,” Graham said Thursday in an interview aired on C-SPAN. “Iraq is collapsing as I speak. The ISIS (Islamic State of Iraq and Syria) is an army and not a bunch of hoodlums. They have a very specific agenda, and that is to create an Islamic caliphate.”

Graham wondered whether the impending threat mattered to the United States and if so, what the country was prepared to do about it. He said there was no way the Iraqis could stop the bleeding without the assistance of American air power.

He’s like Colonel Klink, though. Whatever he says, do the opposite.

If you want to know what Obama will do, figure out what would be the best for the US and then do the opposite.

What is the U.S. prepared to ‘do’ about it? Senator, don't you know that “should the political winds turn ugly, I will side with the muslems.”?

The ‘I’ in this quote is from none other than the Commander-in-Chief himself.

These Republican jackasses have been sitting on their hands for 5 long years now. Until they grow a pair, nothing is going to change. Well, instead of Baghdad, Obama will just invite every terrorist he can find to come over here and kill us. I am not being an alarmist either. I think this his is plan.

How much you wanna bet that the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria was and is getting the arms and equipment CONgress, including Limp-wristed Lindsey, wanted to give to the Al Qaeda 'rebels' trying to overthrow the secular, legitimate government of Syria?

The solution is simple

Simply ban anyone from 15 Mid-East or North African countries from traveling to the USA. Accept no students from the region. Scrutinize very closely any Americans who go there.

There is nothing that graham has to say that is important.

What are we going to do in iraq? Drown them in dollars again?

Nope. It’s over for their “democracy”. It was always going to be this way. If we ever go back it should be to take and keep their oil.

The iraqi people aren’t and never were worth our blood and treasure.

And yet a few months ago Graham wanted to arm and help these very same terroists.

Graham is on board for launching targeted missile strikes in Syria to diminish its chemical weapon capacity and assist the rebels who have been stuck in a three-year slog with President Bashar Assad that's resulted in more than 100,000 dead.

Next to Sen. John McCain, there's no more forceful and visible advocate for a muscular response.

Graham is another DC idiot.

Agree 100% - and this never ending crap started in 1991 with Bush the first. A pox on all of them.

Set up a scenario where you make it appear as if the illegals in this country have teamed with foreign terrorist to wage war against the US, and you already have your invading army in the US.

Orchestrate civil unrest and race riots with the illegals then carry out terrorist attacks.

Not that tough.

The two dancing boys (Graham and McCain) are just trying to cover their involvement with the illegal conspiracy to arm Syrian rebels to topple Assad. What a stupid strategy that should get both of them thrown in jail. Some of those same rebels are the ISIL former Al Qeada that are now attacking Iraq.

The problem is the McCain Mini-Me wants to arm the Sunnis fighting Assad. Guess what the ISIS is one of the most effective groups fighting Assad.
