Juan McCain is determined to get us into this war

ON THE WRONG SIDE.

Where is a stroke when we need one.

Somebody needs to primary Graham with attack ads about how Christians are being slaughtered in Syria with help from Graham’s rebel friends. In addition to ads about Graham’s support for amnesty, of course.

Great idea!

Give Juan and Linda a couple of AK’s, spare mags, and they can lead the way.

I doubt if the senior senators from the “Freedom” or “Tea” Party would be begging a proto-Muslim usurper to risk American lives or treasure in the furtherance of Jihadist aims, or am I wrong?

Pretty funny. I read the headline and the first thing I thought was, “Not McCain and Graham again.”

The mast is removed. they are liberal democrat operatives within the Republican party. The liberals are desperate to so expose their hand!

Obama’s foreign policy has been an absolute disaster. His Libya policy resulted in the death of 4 Americans and the burning of the consulate in Benghazi. He drew a “red line” which the Syrians ignored, making him look like the fool that he is. He asked both China and Russia to turn over Snowden, and they basically laughed at him. He's lost Egypt, and insulted the leaders of Africa by pushing his pro-gay agenda. He's trying to weasel-word his way around the EU spying debacle, and Israel has no reason to believe anything he says. Our enemies neither fear or respect us, and our allies no longer trust us.

American foreign policy has been a disaster since Reagan!

Obama is simply further down-slope, and it’s not looking good for anyone besides jihadis and chicoms, frankly.

Just get all Americans outta there that want to leave and let them fight it out!
Obama gave them Morsi!
We need not get involved there! Besides Bami will just shut off their A/C and then they will be really POed!
These Islamists are of no substance to the world!
The poeple of that Nation will have to police their own.
No matter what the USA does it will be wrong and the winds will change again! These people do not want to be free!
Sad to say it may be coming to the USA!

We are already involved in dozens of wars across Africa ănd Southwest Asia, including Syria. We have been providing weapons to the Sunni combănts for some time. That is what Benghazi was all about.

Has yhere ever been a conflict that John McCain didn't want to involve us in?

For an ex-military guy, he sure is keen on sending our troops into harm's way.
