When it comes to radical Islam, a border wall is our last line of defense — not our first. Our first line of defense is a forward deployed presence working with partners to disrupt enemy operations directed at our allies and homeland.

Lindsey Graham

I hope President Trump will not do in Syria what Obama did in Iraq -- which led to the rise of ISIS. We also must not abandon our Kurdish allies who have fought so hard by our side in Syria.

Lindsey Graham
5 months ago:   Wednesday Dec 26 - 4:23pm
We must remember these troops are in Iraq to retake ground from ISIS after Obama’s ill-conceived withdrawal. The worst thing for morale would be to give back to the enemy territory that was previously taken through blood and sacrifice.

Lindsey Graham

If we completely withdraw from Syria: * Turkey and Kurds will start a new war. * Most pressure taken off ISIS. * Iran becomes biggest winner. All can be avoided with less troops if we ‘partner’ with Turkey under the right conditions.

Lindsey Graham

‘Relying’ on Turkey to destroy ISIS for the United States is a big mistake. ‘Partnering’ with Turkey to destroy ISIS - and ensuring protection for the Kurds who fought so bravely - is a big win. https://t.co/ihkASaUEKn
