I find refreshing when a politician selects the right words to answer the biased media, specially CNN. He got no mercy, hahaha... Go to 5:30 on the video and have fun.

He feels much the same way about trumps pullout of syria so at least he is consistent.

thehill.com...




“It is imperative Congress hold hearings on withdrawal decision in Syria — and potentially Afghanistan — to understand implications to our national security,” Graham, a foreign policy hawk, said on Twitter. “Especially we must NOW hear from the Pentagon about the likelihood of the rise of ISIS and the fate of our Kurdish allies in Syria,” he added. “As to the status of our Kurdish allies, the Administration has yet to tell the American people what happens to the Kurds — who fought so hard for us — when we leave. Is there a plan to protect our allies post withdrawal? Need answers now."

Well, he did.

Obama and his administration thugs have interfered with the President and his agenda more than any other previous sitting administration in history.

We all know why that is. Hopefully, they will have to answer for their crimes.

South Carolina Senator Lindsey Graham holds a press conference following lunch with President Donald Trump. Beyond the border security shutdown issues, notably Senator Graham shares:

…” We had a great lunch. We talked about Syria; and he told me some things I didn’t know that make me feel a lot better about where we’re headed in Syria”.. @03:35

Trump pulls troops out... if anything goes bad.... Obama's fault.
Got it!

🤣

If anyone knows military strategy, its Trump. He outsmarted them with the bone thing, so he knows the military!

Good. They worked it out. I'm glad.

I agree with pulling out of syria and graham could have been a big stumbling block.

I agreed with obama about pulling out of iraq too.

We need to bring all our troops home and shut down our bases over there.

Bush signed for the withdrawl of all troops from Iraq by the end of 2011.

So Lindsey seems to be lying by claiming it was Obama who made the deal.

The isn't surprising because I think politicians believe they can say anything and people will believe it.

What could go bad?
No more US service members getting killed there?

What Lindsey Graham seems to forget is that the Iraqi people wanted Americans out of their country.

I highly doubt this pullout.

So before he was President he wrote the rules on the physical disqualifications of joining the military?

I find it hilarious that some people still bring that up.

So to you, did the Bad Orange Man go back in time, become several other people and make rules so that future Trump was disqualified from military service based on a failed physical?

Inquiring minds want to know about this particular conspiracy!!!

I mean, at the very least you could point out that since he was physically disqualified for service then he should be unable to be the Commander in Chief.

Of course, that would bring up Obama and Clinton's military record...

I find it humorous that people call Trump a draft dodger or what not, when his number was never called in the first place. You can look that up, given the lottery system was based on dates of birth, and his birthday was never pulled.

Anyhow, Lindsay Graham is a warhawk and I think we need to get out of the middle east entirely. Sure he may be sticking to his guns on this issue and being consistent, but he is wrong in stating that we should be there.

his birthday was never pulled.


I guess you mean his birthday number was not one to be drafted. His birthday had a number, but it was near the very end of the order.

Not anymore! President Trump "enlightened" Lindsay Graham today.
Ref: www.abovetopsecret.com...

President Trump is going to "enlighten" (and light up!) a lot of Democrats especially, in the coming days.

We have already wasted trillions. Can you imagine if all that money was spent for infrastructure in the United States!

fpif.org...



First, the economic costs: According to estimates by the Costs of War project at Brown University’s Watson Institute for International and Public Affairs, the war on terror has cost Americans a staggering $5.6 trillion since 2001, when the U.S. invaded Afghanistan.

$5.6 trillion. This figure includes not just the Pentagon’s war fund, but also future obligations such as social services for an ever-growing number of post-9/11 veterans.

It’s hard for most of us to even begin to grasp such an enormous number.

It means Americans spend $32 million per hour, according to a counter by the National Priorities Project at the Institute for Policy Studies.

Put another way: Since 2001, every American taxpayer has spent almost $24,000 on the wars — equal to the average down payment on a house, a new Honda Accord, or a year at a public university.

Look, Obama was a globalist/socialist asshole.


But Bush didn't get a SOFA Agreement with the provisional Iraqi government so we couldn't stay there.

So blame it on Bush.


But yeah, Obama is still a dick.

Considering the fact that the real reason we were there was to stop Russia from gaining access to gulf ports in Syria and ISIS was simply a convenient excuse, I say screw it.
The caliphate is gone, Assad and Russia, and Turkey, will do just fine keeping it from springing back, and I could give a crap about Russian presence in the gulf.
They are there anyway.
I say good job Mr President.

American Deep State/Politicians/MSM are foolish if they believe that somehow Russia and some Iranian forces or Iranian soldiers within the Syrian Army would leave the country.
Why is the American gov forcing Iranians out of Syria when considering that Syria and Iran are allies?

Syria will be America's Afghanistan.

Nice, I was waiting for someone to ignore content of discussion and just jump to "racist".

It's just so much more efficient.
