On Sunday, Senator Lindsey Graham stated that Defence Secretary Lloyd Austin’s recent remarks regarding the Israel-Hamas conflict have caused him to lose faith in him.
He lacks maturity. When asked about Austin’s comments on how Israel’s tactics are transforming Gazan residents into potential foes, the South Carolina Republican responded, “I mean, I just lost all confidence in this guy” on CNN’s “State of the Union” in answer to a question posed by anchor Dana Bash.
What we’ve learned from urban combat is that protecting civilians is the key to victory, Austin stated in his speech delivered on Saturday in California. He warned that if Israel did not take all necessary precautions to save Gazan people, it could risk turning a military triumph into a loss.
The Palestinians would be incensed if we were to lose strategically? “They’re already very angry,” Graham went on to say. They learn to despise and murder Jews the moment they are born. Maths is a part of their education: “If you had 10 Jews and killed six of them, how many would be left?”
When Bash brought up Graham’s statement again, Graham reiterated it.
“This war has shown to me… even though I like Secretary Austin.” We would have laughed them out of town or even thrown them out of town if someone had demanded a cease-fire against Al Qaeda within two months of 9/11, while we were under such an attack. According to Graham, Secretary Austin is promising Israel goals that are just not achievable.
