Taliban may attack, drive us out of Middle East – US Senator, Graham warns
Lindsey Graham, a United States Republican Senator, has warned that with the way things are going, the Taliban may chase America and its allies out of the Middle East.
He also said that the Taliban may attack the US and vowed that the country’s military will be going back to Afghanistan.
Graham gave the assurance that the US military will return to Afghanistan in spite of the fact that US President, Joe Biden had last month ended the 20-year-old war with Afghanistan.
“The Taliban will impose a lifestyle on the Afghan people that I think is going to make us all sick to our stomach,” Graham told BBC.
“But most importantly, they’re going to give safe haven to Al-Qaeda who has ambitions to drive us out of the Mideast writ large and attack us because of our way of life.
“We will be going back into Afghanistan as we went back into Iraq and Syria.
“We’ll have to because the threat will be so large,” he added.
The lawmaker cited the situations in Iraq and Syria and noted that Afghanistan will now become a “cauldron for radical Islamic behaviour.”
As a solution, the senator said that the US must back the resistance in the Panjshir Valley. According to him, this would help avoid the “fracture of the country that would create a perfect storm for Western interests to be attacked and to hit them before they hit you.”
