After listening to President Obama lay out a foreign policy vision during the State of the Union address on Tuesday, Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) walked away with a nightmarish vision. So, just how dire is the situation, senator?

“The world is literally about to blow up,” Graham said, as quoted by Roll Call.

From Obama’s vow to veto any new sanctions for Iran to the ongoing crisis in Syria, Graham said the world as he knows it “was not remotely described” in the State of the Union speech.

Graham has a penchant for using apocalyptic rhetoric when discussing foreign policy and national security. After Obama said last year that the war on terrorism must come to an end, Graham warned that “the Middle East is going to blow up.”
