John McCain: itís time to arm Syriaís opposition
UK Daily Telegraph ^ | May 31, 2012 | Staff

Posted on 05/31/2012 1:27:52 PM PDT by C19fan

"It's time to act. It's time to give the Syrian opposition the weapons in order to defend themselves. It's not a fair fight," Sen McCain told reporters in the Malaysian capital Kuala Lumpur. Sen McCain attacked Russia and China for opposing aggressive action on Syria, and President Barack Obama - who defeated him in the 2008 election - for not acting more forcefully on the issue. "It is shameful that the United Nations Security Council should again be hindered by Russia and China by their vetoes for any significant action against Syria," he said.

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.

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.

Sounds a lot like Menachem Begin's "solution" to the Iran-Iraq war. The only reason he bombed Osirak is because Saddam said any weapon obtained would only be used against the Zionist Entity and Iran had nothing to fear. Dork

Precisely. This is madness. Both sides are EVIL.

There is a country that needs saved and every effort should be made to save her.....THAT country is America.... the one that matters, the U.S. of A.

Until we can make our own damn country viable again, get rid of Obama and the corrupt bastards—republicans and democrats, we should shut up and mind our own business.

Without legitimate, honorable and intelligent leadership, we have no business in getting into another war that is not ours.

There may very well come a day when we must fight back attacks, but we could very well be financially unable to do so.

The terrorists attacking Syria are the same that Syria helped to go into Iraq.

Yes, lets do to Syria what we did to Libya and Egypt. What a stupid man this is. They are better off with Assad than the Muslim Brotherhood.

The opposition in Syria is dominated by the Muslim Brotherhood and supported by Al Qaeda.
Article III, Section 3 of the US Constitution:
Treason against the United States, shall consist only in levying War against them, or in adhering to their Enemies, giving them Aid and Comfort. No Person shall be convicted of Treason unless on the Testimony of two Witnesses to the same overt Act, or on Confession in open Court.

The Congress shall have Power to declare the Punishment of Treason, but no Attainder of Treason shall work Corruption of Blood, or Forfeiture except during the Life of the Person attainted.

Just to be clear, I am accusing anyone supporting the Muslim Brotherhood and Al Qaeda in Lybia and Syria of being traitors. Past service to this country is irrelevant. General Benedict Arnold saved this nation at the Battle of Saratoga. He still commuted treason.

When one pack of anti-American mad dogs is fighting another pack of anti-American mad dogs our best action is to keep them at each other’s throats as long as possible with the highest possible casualties on each side.

I’ve been reading Allan Nevin’s history of the 1850s - these do-gooder meddlers remind me of the filibusters of that era, eager to make their writ run where they pleased, under the protection of the U.S.

Syria for the Syrians.

Because innocent human beings are being tortured & killed, and caring about that is part of what makes us who we are.

Then why haven't we invaded Detroit? Just as many muslims and just as much killing.

Hey McCain!

Remember the fears of all those Stinger missiles we sold the Afghani rebels to fight the Soviet Union way back when, and then the very real fears that US airmen would be facing those very same missiles?

I say let’s prolong the fighting. The more time they spend slaughtering each other, the less they’re going to spend on trying to slaughter Israelis, Jews, and Americans.

The question I answered was:
“Why do we give a rat’s patootie what the Syrians are doing to each other?”

It didn’t strike me as political and neither was my answer.

We can care all we want about the plight of Syrians, as long as we stay the hell out of it! No arms, no troops, no money, NOTHING.

If a situation in a foreign country, involving our national interest, requires a military response, let it be a nuclear response. In Japan it took two bombs, I don't think now days it would take more than one. Do this once or twice and after that, the “threat” alone would be enough.
