Tough Guy Lindsey Graham Vows that 2017 Will Be Year of ‘Kicking Russia in the Ass’

The other half of the warmongering glimmer twins – Senator Lindsey Graham – was a big hit in Germany with his tough talk about Russia. Joining demented old John McCain at the Munich Security Conference, the Palmetto State Princess brought down the house when he proclaimed that 2017 was the year that the U.S. Congress would be “kicking Russia in the ass”.

According to the German news site DW.com “US senator calls 2017 year of ‘kicking Russia in the ass’”:

US Senator Lindsey Graham relayed a clear message to Moscow during the Munich Security Conference (MSC) this weekend.

“2017 is going to be a year of kicking Russia in the ass in Congress,” Graham told leaders from around the world on Sunday.

The senior Republican senator from South Carolina was responding to allegations that Russian hackers intervened in the US presidential election to help Donald Trump win.

His comments came amid growing unease among European allies over the Trump administration’s questionable relationship with Russia, its wavering commitment to NATO and its ambiguous stance toward policies that have served as the bedrock for the trans-Atlantic relationship for some 70 years. His words also come a day after Chancellor Angela Merkel stressed the importance of the intergovernmental military alliance.

Promising to investigate Russian meddling just as several European countries gear up for their own elections this year, Graham urged Trump to take a tougher stance on Moscow and vowed to introduce a bipartisan motion to slap the Russian government with more sanctions.

“My goal is to put it on Trump’s desk and I hope he’ll embrace the idea that as the leader of the free world he should be working with us to punish Russia,” Graham said.

Graham’s tough talk coincided with McCain’s veiled threat that there is enough GOP support in Congress to conduct a series of inquisitions against President Donald Trump while the media increasingly works to sell the removal of Trump using the 25th Amendment.

These two yahoos’ foreign policy is straight out of Dr. Strangelove:
