Lindsey Graham Believes We Should Stay In the Middle East Forever
Lindsey Graham, running for president as a war hawk, believes we should never leave the Middle East.
…Graham has confirmed that he does not believe the U.S. should ever give up its presence in the Middle East.
After Graham said that as president he would arm the Ukrainians, leave troops in Afghanistan, add more troops in Iraq and recruit allies to start a new war in Syria, [Chuck] Todd asked him, “How do you get out?”
“You don’t get out,” Graham replied. Like Japan and Germany after World War II, the senator said he would keep troops in the region indefinitely. “I think you have to be involved in the Mideast militarily, politically, economically,” he said. “If you’re not, you’re making a huge mistake.”
