Senator Graham warns rapid U.S. withdrawal from Syria could create "Iraq on steroids"

ROUGH CUT.

NO REPORTER NARRATION.

U.S. Senator Lindsey Graham said on Saturday (January 19) that he hoped President Donald Trump would slow the U.S. pullout from Syria until Islamic State is destroyed, warning that, if not thought through, the withdrawal can create an "Iraq on steroids." Speaking in Ankara, Turkey, Graham also said he believed U.S. Chief of Staff Joseph Dunford was working on a plan with Turkey to move Kurdish YPG elements away from the Turkish border.

President Trump announced last month that Islamic State had been defeated in Syria and he would pull U.S. forces out of the country.

The decision created new uncertainty over the eight-year-long Syrian war and spurred a flurry of contacts over how a resulting security vacuum will be filled across northern and eastern Syria where the U.S. forces are stationed.

The withdrawal of U.S. troops from Iraq by the end of 2011, nine years after the 2003 U.S-led invasion, left space for the rise of Islamic State militants, prompting the United States to intervene again.
