The Feb. 2 Post and Courier says Sen. Lindsey Graham wants to send 10,000 American troops to Syria to destroy the Islamic State.

Is the senator serious? If we send troops ISIS fighters will flee like cockroaches when the lights come on. Do we leave our troops till the Second Coming because, remember, we have the watches but they have the time?

It’s very hard to stop the belief of a distorted and profane Islam or those who follow it.

Do we half-heartedly kill ISIS thugs in Syria and prop up their vile and corrupt government? Is the enemy of my enemy my friend? Why can’t Saudi Arabia, Jordan, Kuwait and the other Islamic nations destroy ISIS?

We spent over a decade in Iraq and Afghanistan, and our president declared we won. Won what?

If Sen. Graham is so concerned about Islamic crazies coming to this country then seal the borders; expel all those who actively subvert the American way; make it impossible for people who don’t endorse our Constitution and justice system to enter this country; and ensure our right to bear arms is protected.
