We did some syrious damage to their reactor Iran and NK helped them build in 2007, don’t see why we wouldn’t act again.
Stupid fool, he won’t be satisfied until the US is in a real war, with Russia and China involved.
Juan McLame won’t be happy until President Omoslem has transformed the entire globe into a moslem caliphate.
First Egypt, Libya. Then Syria. Then the USA.
Thanks McCain, you douchebag.
Nope. No more war mongering.
Long past time for McStain to dry up and blow away.
So maybe we actually are better off with Obama than we might hgave been with McCain. Syria with 5 times the population of Libya, no pleas for us to intervene. Russia and China vetoing unlike their abstentions re Libya. We don’t need another ground war in the Middle East, John.
I think it’s about time to intervene in China. Their greenhouse gas emissions are way over the top, not to mention particulates. I mean, they show up in Seattle, you know? Isn’t that an act of war or something?
That is what McCain thinks. He suspended his campaign for President. Stated Obama would be a good President before any voting was done. And therefore basically throw the election to Obama. Now what did Johnny Boy get in return ? Well, the Roman Senate RINO/DINO click is using their Half Black man to basically get away with murder. And that is a shame.
I give you John McCain.
Paging Mr. Assad: please read Isaiah 17. That is all.
Dear Senator McCain, a few things to consider:
-Syria has over 600,000 troops under arms and lots of late model Russian equipment. It is, in a sense, an updated version of the army Saddam Hussein fielded in Desert Storm. A Gulf War 1-type coalition could smash the force, but you’re not going to dismantle Assad’s power base with just NATO airstrikes and a bunch of rebels shouting Allahu Akbar. So, where are you going to find the money, the allies, and the manpower to do all that?
-Russia and China both have veto power on the UN security council. China has been investing/trading with Syria fairly heavily in recent years, and the Russians have had strong ties with Damascus going back to the early 70’s, if not earlier. Moscow and Beijing aren’t likely to go along with your idea.
-Who steps in if Assad is forced out? Egypt and Libya aren’t really filling me with confidence right now, Senator.
-Have you forgotten about Iran? What is happening in Syria is deplorable. But what is happening in Iran is deplorable and represents a long-term threat to U.S. security and that of our Israeli allies. Do we spend more blood and treasure on Syria while Tehran continues to play its games?
Just so you know ... a mid-east caliphate is a done deal ... interesting times ahead. For the record Obama lit the fire.
I'm thankful McCain didn't win; I'm still stunned he was the GOP nominee. Yes, I technically voted for him but that was for Palin and I knew going in it was a fruitless protest vote here in CA.
Saving us all from a McCain presidency could be Obama's greatest contribution. It certainly saved the GOP!
That whole area is gonna be a glow in the dark glass parking lot soon.
Late, but in order.
Final phase: Russia and China come home.
This stuff is playing out.
We didn’t do it, the Israelis did. We simply supplied the radar jamming so the Syrians never knew a thing until it blew up.
“CAPT McStain, we attack Syria at 0700. You will lead the first (and only) wave. Your second-in-command is Gramnesty. Make sure all your wills are in order — Gramnesty is a Reserve JAG and he can handle things — because it appears no one is coming back.”
Crazy old stupid fool, and anyone else that agrees with this folly.
Bring all of our ground combat troops home, and let the locals give up THEIR lives to protect THEIR country. I’ve had enough of 10 years worth DYING and TRILLIONS in spending to protect everyone else’s ass, and getting absolutely NOTHING in return.
Ours need to be here protecting OUR country against the people that WILL bring down this country that are coming across the border DAILY!!!
FLASH: McCane Makes the Case for Health Care Rationing and Death Panels.
McCain still has not spoken out about fast and furious, or Mexicans murdered across his state's border. He was one of Obama's biggest cheer leaders going into Libya.
I’ve thought the same thing, send in the ruling class and their families in the first wave. If these pompous idiots that create these messes all from the comfort of their easy chair at the urging of others of like mind, faced imminent risk and real fear we wouldn’t have any more nation building and foolish wars. The wars we fight should be to defend the homeland from attack.
In days of old the king led his men into battle and war wasn’t taken lightly.
When I see these corrupt politicians saying the same lying stuff, living on our dole for term after term, I fully support term limits of 6 years and they are out. After 6 years they’ve learned the ropes of how to game the system, and by that time their BS voices and faces have started to wear thin.
