‘This Will Be Almost Total War’: Lindsey Graham Reportedly Urged Trump Not to Kill Soleimani - Sputnik International

Graham, the South Carolina senator who has enthusiastically supported every war that the United States has started since 2003, reportedly reversed roles with the president, who has showed a penchant for restraint from embroiling Washington in new quagmires, when it came to the Iranian Quds Force commander.

Senator Lindsey Graham desperately urged President Trump not to assassinate Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps General Qasem Soleimani just days before his 3 January 2020 drone strike near Baghdad’s international airport, investigative journalist Bob Woodward suggests in his new book ‘Rage’, which hit the shelves last week.
Told by Trump that he was thinking of “hitting Soleimani” during a leisurely game of golf at the Trump International Golf Club in West Palm Beach, Florida on 30 December 2019, Graham reportedly reacted with surprise, exclaiming “Oh, boy, that’s a giant step!”
    “If they retaliate in some way, which they will, you’ve got to be willing to take out the oil refineries,” the senator continued, adding that if the US did so, “this will be almost total war!”
