Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC), who has been pushing for aggressive action against ISIS and warning about the terrorist group’s threat to the homeland, on Sunday seemed unable to deal with President Obama’s Middle East policy any longer.

“It’s going to take an army to beat an army, and this idea we’ll never have any boots on the ground to defeat them in Syria is fantasy, and all this has come home to roost over the last three years of incompetent decisions,” Graham said on “Fox News Sunday.” “It’s delusional in the way they approach this.”

As Graham continued to bash Obama’s plan to defeat ISIS, he became more and more heated.

“There is no way in hell you can form an army on the ground to go into Syria to destroy ISIL without a substantial American component,” he said.

“This is a war we’re fighting! It is not a counter-terrorism operation,” he continued. “This president needs to rise to the occasion before we all get killed back here at home.”
