I agree. Let the Middle East handle it. We are not the police of the world. Stay out of it. We don’t need any more Wounded Warriors.

Let the Saudis and Iranians make Syria a proxy war where lots of Iranians and salafists kill each other.

McCain is SENILE.
Seriously, I think that he shows advancing dementia.

The Syrian opposition is the Muslim Brotherhood, AQ, and other mixed Islamic elements.

What McCain needs to do is retire so we can get someone in his office that is sane.

For a guy who personally experienced the horrors of war he sure is war monger. I compare that to Eisenhower who worked pretty hard for the US to avoid getting involve in crap like this.

Absolutely!

John McShame, just STFU and let the muzzies butcher each other off. Dipsh_t McQueeg is advocating for terrorists who hate us even more than the current ruling terrorists. McQueeg is dumber than dirt. Go back to 'nam & stay there.

How about arming all of them, and let them kill each other for the next 100 years?

Channeling Cardinal Richelieu. Spengler, aka David Goldman, sort of advocates that type of policy. :)

I would settle for John McCain, or anyone else, first explaining exactly what the hell is really happening in Libya at the moment and exactly how NATO's "intervention" has helped the USA.
