BEIRUT, LEBANON (10:00 P.M.) – U.S. Senator Lindsey Graham tweeted on Friday that if the reports about the Kurdish forces aligning with the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) are true, it would be a “major disaster in the making.”

“If reports accurate about Kurds aligning with Assad, major disaster in the making. Nightmare for Turkey and eventually Israel. Big winners are Russia, Iran/Assad & ISIS,” Graham tweeted on Friday.

“New conflicts between regional powers take pressure off ISIS,” he added.

Graham has been outspoken about his discontent over U.S. President Donald Trump’s decision to withdraw his nation’s armed forces from Syria.

“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,” Graham tweeted earlier this week.

The senator from South Carolina previously visited northern Syria to meet with several members of the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) and the U.S. military.

Graham has repeatedly called on the U.S. to intensify their operations in Syria and get more involved in overthrowing the Syrian government.

No difference for Israel : they could cope with an attack from ALL MENA countries since they have enough in store to turn ’em all back to the stone age…

Most US. citizens pay no heed to anything Graham has to say. He’s just another bad joke on the people.
And before anyone retorts that “he was voted into the office” it must be, once more, repeated that there are no honest elections in the U.S. The Rothschild cabal puts in office anyone it d**n well pleases. Most citizens now realize this but have found no way to counter the collusion of the government, the media, and the ivory tower supposed places of education. Nor the Rothschild money that controls them through its franchise, the federal reserve.

Thus, Graham is right : the announcement of withdrawal implies Kurds having no other choice than to ally with Assad+Russia+ugly Iranian bigots in order to not being finished off by Erdogan and his minions, thus it’s a true disaster for US geopolitical interests in the region. Would you understand geopolitics, this simply paves the way for a major conflict at regional level in the a-coming years. But, the worst for the Yanks is at EU relations level since EU has ZERO inteest in letting the Kurds down and is military speaking twice as powerful as Russia and on par with… Read more »

While most of what this hillbilly said is incoherent drivel, the part that goes “our Kurdish allies who have fought so hard by our side in Syria” says all one must know. They were only used. I hope they’ve finally understood that and won’t fall for any Yankee lies again.

He’s not incoherent at all, actually, he’s even absolutely right : Trump announcing a withdrawal is a true disaster for US interests in the region and moreover, point the fact that they can’t be trusted as an ally which is even more terrible for any future actions.
They may end losing EU a an ally which in the end may end allying with Russia, thus becoming way more prevalent than USA (or China) in worlds’ affairs.
