Sen. Lindsey Graham appeared on NBC’s “Meet the Press” and took an aggressive stance on America’s simultaneous effort to defeat ISIS and solve the Syrian crisis. Graham is calling for more U.S. troops in the terror fight and also suggested that President Trump already has broad authority to order missile strikes on Syria.

The South Carolina Republican is calling for as many as 6,000 more U.S. troops to help defeat the Islamic State terror group.

“You need more American troops to accelerate (ISIS’) demise,” Graham said. “You train the opposition to go after [Syrian President Bashar] Assad. That’s how he’s taken out by his own people, with our efforts.”

Graham also argued that the USA is “relying too much” on the Kurds in that region to defeat ISIS and that additional U.S. troops would attract more regional fighters in that effort.

Fox News reports that Graham spoke several days after Trump unilaterally ordered a missile attack on a Syrian airbase in response to Assad’s deadly chemical weapons attack on civilians and as the Trump administration tried to explain its foreign policy.

National Security Adviser Lt. Gen. H.R. McMaster told “Fox News Sunday” that the president is taking “simultaneous action” in defeating ISIS and ending the 6-year-long civil war in Syria to oust the Assad regime, which has caused a humanitarian crisis.

Graham also suggested that Trump has the authority, without authorization from Congress, to send in additional troops and hit Assad again for using chemical weapons.

“He already has that authority,” said Graham, who acknowledged that his position doesn’t have widespread Washington consensus. “I think the president has authorization to use force. Assad signed the chemical weapons treaty ban. There’s an agreement with him not to use chemical weapons.”

It’s good to see that Graham isn’t being an idiot like so many others are.

God Bless.
