Oh, he had approval all right. As was correctly pointed out upthread, he’s Obama’s sock monkey.

Instead we’re doing all we can to help the Saudi’s (Obama’s masters) under the guise of “humanitarian concerns”.

No big surprise, since they're the ones who got him into Harvard Law and paid for their coreligionist's stay there.

I don’t really understand what is Obama’s policy on Syria? He seems to be pretty mute on it.

Meanwhile, the same libs who wanted us out of Iraq, who yelled about us being in Viet Nam, saying it was a civil war and we don’t belong in there now seem to want us to get involved in Syria’s civil war. Why?

Uhhh....don’t we kill US citizens with drones who’ve gone overseas and joined terrorist groups? McCain is insane.

Fox News just had a guest on and he commented that this was just nothing but foolish on McCain's part to go there with no security, to trust even the rebels and that McCain was trying to get the no fly zone in place/bring attention to that.

‘And if he had approval....why him?”

Because Obama can recognize a “useful idiot” when he sees one.

Last McCain post was Satire, and I got sucked in.

This time I was SURE it was Satire and got fooled again.

Two definitions of stupid: 1.) Believing commie gooks are our friends (after they torture you). 2.) Believing Muslims are our friends.

That’s great. So Obama is merely executing the wishes of our Congress.

Amazing.

Have we sunk so low that we can’t even create our own quagmires anymore, that we have to insinuate our way into other countries’ ready-made messes like Syria’s?

Apparently, Obama’s original plan was to send John Kerry to Moscow to try to convince the Russians to stop supporting Bashir al-Assad so he would be forced to agree to negotiations with the rebels.

But John Kerry failed to do that, although it’s rumored he has applied for a Purple Heart for wounds to his ego suffered from three hours of waiting for Vladimir Putin to admit him to his office.

It’s probably safe to assume that John Kerry’s major negotiating gambit was a threat to arm the rebels if the Russians didn’t stop arming Syria’s president.

So now that we’ve been rebuffed by Mr. Putin, what can we do but make good on our threat?

So there is John McCain leading us into another valley of death where we can get bogged down for another ten years.

slipped? SLIPPED? The last time Yosemite Sam McPain slipped across a border he lost one of our airplanes——used it to take out a SAM.
