The Armed Forces are weaker than ever under Biden. But it’s far worse than you could ever guess.
And Lindsey Graham uncovered this dangerous truth about Biden’s military.
The United States just came under attack from Iranian-backed Houthi rebels based out of Yemen.
Meanwhile, Israel and Hamas are at each other’s throats and China is building warship after warship.
And our military has just sat back and done nothing.
That was too much for one conservative.
Senator Lindsey Graham (R-SC) slammed Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin’s job performance over the weekend, claiming that his actions, or lack thereof, during the last two months demonstrate that Austin is not the proper man for the post.
Graham made the remarks during a Sunday appearance on CNN’s State of the Union with anchor Dana Bash, as U.S. forces have been attacked 75 times in the last several weeks, with little retaliation from the Iranian-backed militants behind the attacks.
Bash questioned Graham on Austin’s recent remarks about Israel’s need to decrease the number of purported civilian casualties within Gaza as it seeks to destroy the terrorists responsible for the October 7 slaughter.
“He said, if you drive civilians into the arms of the enemy, you replace a tactical victory with a strategic defeat, which he’s saying that civilian casualties could create even more enemies,” Bash said.
“Does he have a point?”
Graham responded: “No. He’s so naive. I mean, I have just lost all confidence in this guy.”
“How about focusing on protecting our soldiers, men and women, in Syria and Iraq? Strategic defeat would be inflaming the Palestinians? They’re already inflamed,” he continued.
“They’re taught from the time they’re born to hate the Jews and to kill them. They’re taught math by, if you have 10 Jews, you kill six, how many would you have left?”
“It’s like, this is a tranquil population only inflamed after Israel goes in to defend itself is really naive. This is a radicalized population. I don’t want to kill innocent people, but Israel is fighting not just Hamas, but the infrastructure around Hamas,” he continued.
“Look what happened to the Israeli hostages when they were presented to the Palestinian population. It’s beyond naive. Strategic failure is letting Hamas stand.”
“This war has shown to me he doesn’t understand,” Graham later added.
“If we were attacked like this, which we were on 9/11, if somebody called for us within two months to have a cease-fire against al Qaeda, that would have been — we’d have laughed them out of town. We’d have run them out of town. Secretary Austin is telling Israel things that are impossible to achieve.”
Sec. Austin is wrong to suggest that strategic defeat for Israel would be inflaming the Palestinians.
