Sen. Graham: Military intervention in Syria should be ‘on the table’
The Hill ^ | Sunday, June 12, 2011 | Ben Gelman

Posted on 06/12/2011 1:00:59 PM PDT by kristinn

Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) said Sunday that it’s time to consider international intervention in Syria to avoid the further “slaughter” of people there by President Bashar al-Assad’s forces.

“If it made sense to protect the Libyan people against Gadhafi, and it did because they were going to get slaughtered if we hadn’t sent NATO in when he was on the outskirts of Benghazi, the question for the world [is], have we gotten to that point in Syria,” Graham said on the CBS' "Face the Nation."

Kinda late. We should have done that just after semi-securing Bagdad and Mosul.

Didn’t we start a 4th war sometime last week. What will this be #5? I’m getting confused.

Keep it up sweet Lindsey (Goldie locks) Graham and the considerations may no longer be international.

Graham is saying what he’s being instructed to say...all the better to take the heat of obama and blame it on the “war hungry republicans”,imo, they’ve got something on Graham not unlike Weiner.

Good, Lindsey can get on a plane with a rifle and jump out over Syria.

This plan of perpetual war is bordering on insanity.

The problem with liberating Muslim countries is that always end up using their new liberty to start killing us.

I think Kuwait is the only country that has ever shown us any gratitude and reformed itself in the right direction.

Shut up grahamnesty! We should have not gotten involved in Libya and we sure as hell don’t need to get involved in Syria. Now, if you want to take your fat, queer, sorry rino ass over there and fight I’ll buy you a one way ticket.

America’s humanitarian outreaches are not getting the desired result in Iraq, or Afghanistan, why would they work in Syria?

Time to bring the troops home.

You are witnessing one of barry the bastard's strategies used on the military ... Cloward-Piven is what this lying sonofabitch knows to employ when he wants to accomplish his goals of aborting the We The People Republic, so he's stretching our military to the point of unaccomplishable tasks and bankrupting the eceonomy to boot. It's a twofer in the bastard's eyes, and his supporters (in media and politics) are culpable to the max for continuing to ignore his treachery.

As for Pansey Graham, the Chicago scum have something devastating on the little fairy so he dances to whatever tune they play for him.

No kidding, I still can’t believe that wasn’t the plan in 2003.

Once again, Sen Graham (R-SC, d-bag) has it all screwed up. It is bombing the sh*t out of Iran that shouldn’t be “off the table.”

I suppose this answers the question any one that calls themselves a reporter should have axed a long time ago!

Sunni, or Shiaa?

The proof is decidedly tilted to Shiaa!

Screw the humanitarian efforts. Their responses are only bullets. Key to success is to remember its war. How fast did Germany walk over nations? How fast did the allied forces push out the Germans?

If its war, its war. If it is humanitarian work, that is different... you don’t need troops for that.
