McCain, Graham blast Syrian chemical weapons deal
AP ^ | 9/14/2013 | DARLENE SUPERVILLE

Posted on 09/14/2013 6:44:11 PM PDT by markomalley

Two Republican senators who are among President Barack Obama's sharpest foreign policy critics on Saturday blasted a Syrian chemical weapons agreement as "an act of provocative weakness" by America that will embolden enemies such as Iran as it continues its push for a nuclear weapon.

The House Democratic leader said the deal, under which Syria will be expected to put its stockpile of chemical weapons under international control before they ultimately are destroyed, represented "significant progress" in efforts by the U.S. to prevent the use of weapons of mass destruction.

"What concerns us most is that our friends and enemies will take the same lessons from this agreement: They see it as an act of provocative weakness on America's part," Republican Sens. John McCain of Arizona and Lindsey Graham of South Carolina said in a joint statement. "We cannot imagine a worse signal to send to Iran as it continues its push for a nuclear weapon."

Join me in prayers that Linda Graham is defeated in the primary. Unfortunately, McLame was just reelected by the clueless in AZ.

So we counter the weakness of the message to Iran by blowing their Nuclear reactors and centrifuges to hell. That is the response we should have given Iran a long time ago since they are a real threat to America.

These two are inseparable. Anyone wonder who is the pitcher and who is the catcher.

Please. If Obama asked McCain and Linda to jump off a bridge their response would be "Never again."

You mean a worse signal then ignoring the popular revolt in Iran a few years ago ?

Hurry up and die old men.

I have no idea what you and your constituents stand for but , their continued support of you makes me wonder what vision for America they presume.

Linda and Juan will go down in history as national disgraces, in my opinion. Both would do the country a service by resigning.

These 2 are way off the ranch. What is wrong with the GOP allowing this kind of nonsense in public discourse?

That’s easy to figure. McCainer’s the pitcher and Linda’s the catcher.

I don't want to know. I just want those two and the rest of the RINOs to be fired and sent packing.

McCain slams the deal. Then Graham follows suit. One thing you’ll never see is Graham issues a statement THEN McCain agrees.

Stocks lining Pennsylvania Avenue would be in order, don’t ya think? Is Pennsylvania Avenue long enough for the Regime and Congress? I doubt it.

Direct election of Senators is a failure. Go back to appointment by the state legislators, so they have to fear the voters. Then they can be fired at will. Term limits will never work. It will be the McHalfWit family seat with Juan still calling the shots.

If McCain and Graham want to swap spit all the time, maybe they should go and rent a room.

Both would do the country a service by resigning.

The same could be said about 60 other Senators. The quality of this body has degenerated like a rotting fish since the passage of the 17th Amendment in 1913 when the Progressives were first on the march.
