Lindsey Graham Warns He’ll Deliver “Sanctions From Hell” If Turkey Invades Syria

In the wake of President Donald Trump announcing that he was pulling U.S. forces out of Syria, many began voicing opposition out of their concern for the safety of American allies in the region, namely the Kurds.

Turkey has made it very clear that it intends to conduct “operations in Syria” after the U.S. moves out, and already bombed the Syria-Iraq border in order to prevent Kurd movement that would allow them to fortify their positions.

“In this way, the group’s transit to Syria and support lines, including ammunition, are shut off,” said a Turkish official.


Senator Lindsey Graham (R), who is one of the Senators who denounced the decision to pull U.S. forces out of the region, has warned Turkey that if they so much as step foot in the area, he’ll bury them in sanctions.

“If Turkey moves into northern Syria, sanctions from hell — by Congress — will follow. Wide, deep, and devastating sanctions,” Graham tweeted Tuesday.

This was a follow up to statements he made on Monday, making it clear that if Turkey acts against the Kurds, then sanctions will follow. Graham already has bipartisan support for these sanctions thanks to Democrat Sen. Chris Van Hollen.

“We will introduce bipartisan sanctions against Turkey if they invade Syria and will call for their suspension from NATO if they attack Kurdish forces who assisted the U.S. in the destruction of the ISIS Caliphate,” Graham added.

While this is Trump’s decision, the President has also made it clear that any moves by Turkey in the area will result in the targeted destruction of its economy.

“As I have stated strongly before, and just to reiterate, if Turkey does anything that I, in my great and unmatched wisdom, consider to be off limits, I will totally destroy and obliterate the Economy of Turkey (I’ve done before!),” tweeted Trump.

The ball is in Turkey’s court at this point. Once the U.S. pulls out, Turkey will have to make the decision to risk the wrath of the United States. However, the Kurds aren’t so sure that’s going to scare Turkey into capitulation.

      Our sanctions mean nothing to anyone but us. Something our politicians haven’t figured out yet is that even though we are dependent on the rest of the world, they are not dependent on us. We are nothing more than a convenience to them.
      The rest of the planet knows we are in hock up to our eyeballs and in deep shit up to our asses fighting pointless wars over oil and imperialistic ambitions.
      So big deal, they will not be able to get chips for computers or parts for cars or whatever. They don’t care, because the rest of the world, unlike us, is not addicted to the dollar and not dependent. They aren’t so addicted to technology they cannot do without it.
      We need their oil and natural resources worse than we need anything they have , including their trade. And especially outside sources for survival.

      Cuba did just fine without selling us cigars. The same thing applies everywhere else.
