Sen. Graham: Without U.S. Boots on the Ground vs. ISIS, ‘There’s a 9/11 Coming’

U.S. Senator from South Carolina and 2016 Republican presidential candidate Lindsey Graham said on CNN’s State of the Union on Sunday that the U.S. will be victimized by a terror attack if it does not send ground troops to fight ISIS in Iraq and Syria.

I’m trying to protect America from another 9/11, and without American boots on the ground in Syria and Iraq, we’re gonna get hit here at home. And if you don’t understand that, you’re not ready to be commander-in-chief in my view,” Sen. Graham told CNN’s Jake Tapper.

Tapper asked Graham whether he believes that France should activate the North Atlantic Treaty’s Article 5 provision which would draw France’s NATO allies, including the U.S., into a formal, declared war against ISIS.

They should. The world should be at war with ISIL,” replied Graham.

NATO’s Article 5 provision has previously been invoked only one time — following the Sept. 11, 2001 terror attacks on New York City.

There is a 9/11 coming, and it is coming from Syria if we don’t disrupt their operation inside of Syria,” said Graham.

Sen. Graham called for the U.S. to declare a no-fly zone over Syria, where Russia is currently carrying out air strikes against ISIS. He also suggested that the U.S. should contribute 10,000 troops to a regional coalition to fight in the conflict.

We would take back land held by ISIL and hold it until Syria repairs itself,” said Graham, advocating for a post-war U.S. occupation of portions of Iraq and Syria.

If we don’t do these things soon, what you’ve seen in Paris is coming to America,” Graham claimed.

Earlier this year, Ben Swann released a Truth in Media video exposing how U.S. foreign policy led to the rise of ISIS. Watch it in the below-embedded video player.
