Buzzfeed ^ | 5/29

Posted on 05/29/2013 9:21:53 PM PDT by Arthurio

WASHINGTON — Senator John McCain’s office is pushing back against reports that while visiting Syria this week he posed in a photo with rebels who kidnapped 11 Lebanese Shi’ite pilgrims.

The photo, released by McCain’s office, shows McCain with a group of rebels. Among them are two men identified in the Lebanese press as Mohamed Nour and Abu Ibrahim, two of the kidnappers of the group from Lebanon.

Can’t think of a more fitting example of why this addled F’up should remain on U. S. soil for the reminder of his term in office.

These have been the Republican standard bearers since President Ronald Reagan, 24 years ago.

How has that worked out for us?

American politics have reached the zenith of its evolution. Keeping in mind evolution works towards what propagates effectively.

Our politicians are morons who have no value, ethics, or talent other than convincing people to vote for them.

That’s the purpose of our gov’t now. To exist. No other purpose.

Quick, pull out the "I didn't know anything about it until I read it in the paper" defense! It's all the rage these days.

He went to Syria -- what did he expect? You probably can't swing a dead cat over there without hitting a kidnapper or terrorist.

I don’t buy it. John had 6 or 7 years in Hanoi being used by masters of propaganda. I am surprised he “did not know” he was being used.

Does McCain have any respect for international law? Did he have a visa or passport to enter Syria?

If a foreign leader did such a thing on our soil, it would be an act of war.

McCain loves him some war.

I say it’s time the muslim brotherhood fight their own wars. Obama backed them in Egypt and Libya. It’s time they do their own fighting — especially when we may very well be on the wrong side of this thing.

Well, Johnny, that’s why you are a useful idiot, but only useful to evil people.

Either you are just too damn stupid and arrogant to realize, or you’re evil too.

Either way you and everyone like you has to go.

GTFO!

This old fool is better received in Syria than Arizona. Classic example of senile old men making dopey decisions that cause young men to die and suffer. Maybe he should try to explain just what critical American interest is being served by the United States getting involved in the Syrian civil war.

Those of you who have enjoyed the movie Dr. Strangelove, know of the scene where Slim Pickens rides the nuke down into Moscow.

That’s the picture I get when I think of what McCain did her by accident.

I see him riding a bomb into Syria. The bomb has a name on the side and it’s there in great big letters, “EGO”.

well if he doesn’t (or can’t) know who he’s dealing with there, perhaps he’d better just stay home and try to represent his constituents from now on

or maybe that’s too simple for the good senator ?

McCain does a lot of things he didn’t realize —like trying to slap down the troika of freedom (Rand,Lee and Cruz) and humble Ms. Palin. Time to pack it in John, your day is done.

Obama allowed genocide and WMDs in Syria and started Arab Spring **** in Egypt and Libya.

Lets forget all that **** and jump on McCain for showing up.
He may be a doofus but he aint covering **** up.

The same assclown that calls a pressure cooker a WMD ignores Chemical warfare genocide while going golfing.

A few years ago, I remember a similar pix of Nancy Polosi whth Assad -- all smiles -- when she was trying to undermine Bush.

McCain is an idiot if he thinks we can make any positive difference there,

It's a Crazy v Crazy situation there and neither side is worth one dollar or one drop of American blood.

They will continue to kill each other and lots of innocents --- that's sad -- but it ain't our problem.

We can deal with it after they finish their blood bath.

At this time, we simply can't afford any more blood or treasure trying to reason with these Mid-East lunatics. They can't be reasoned with. We tried, we failed. It's time to back off, protect ourselves and let them butcher the hell out of each other if they want to. It's not our problem.
