The Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant has recently obtained a very important victory in Iraq, taking control over the city of Ramadi after the entire security fled form the way of the jihadi fighters. This event caught the attention of the entire world and in concordance with that the popularity of the Islamic State is growing day by day. However, do not be tempted by the success of the Islamic State. Do not let your already troubled minds to be confused by such thoughts. You have more important things to think about, like the commercials on TV and the presidential race of 2016. And, besides that, thinking about joining ISIL might get you killed, according to a recent statement by the South Carolina Senator Lindsey Graham.
In the recent period of time, the South Carolina Senator Lindsey Graham has come up from time to time and has made some statements and affirmations, possibly building the background for the most important announcement that he said he is going to make on June 1.
However, on Senator Graham has managed to offer a less satisfactory statement recently. What he possibly intended as a joke turned out to be not very intelligent and by no means diplomatic. While speaking in front of a group of republicans in the state of Iowa, Senator Lindsey Graham did not omit to inform them that nobody should even think of joining terrorist organizations like al Qaeda and the Islamic State. And if they were to irresponsibly do so, they would end up dead. Moreover, killed by a drone sent by Lindsey Graham himself.
The statement by the South Carolina Senator started some laughs within the group of republicans who attended the speech delivered by Graham. Most of the political analysts reckon that the uninspired joke by Lindsey Graham was more that just political foolishness. The audience can get a joke, even one like that, but there may be more to Graham (or his speech writers) than meets the eye.
“If I’m President of the United States and you’re thinking about joining Al Qaeda or ISIL—anybody thinking about that?—I’m not going to call a judge, I’m going to call a drone, and we will kill you.“
said Senator Lindsey Graham during his speech in Iowa.
The political analysts in connection to this matter have suggested that this is an attempt to emphasize the difference between Graham`s approach to the war on terrorism and and the antiterro policies brought forth by Rand Paul, who declared that fighting terrorism is a priority, but so is respecting the Constitution, likely referring to the PATRIOT Act.
