Skip to comments.McCain and Graham: U.S. Must 'Take Limited Military Actions in Syria'
Posted on 08/25/2013 7:42:52 AM PDT by Gorilla44
In a statement released this morning, Senators John McCain and Lindsey Graham call for the U.S. to "take limited military actions in Syria."
Recent reports and information from Syria lend additional credibility to what has been clear since last week: Assad and his forces have once again used chemical weapons against civilians in Syria and are, in fact, escalating their use. Their recent massacre of hundreds of men, women, and children around Damascus clearly constitutes the commission of a war crime, and it is the responsibility of civilized nations everywhere to ensure that those responsible are held accountable," the statement reads.
Now is the time for decisive actions. The United States must rally our friends and allies to take limited military actions in Syria that can change the balance of power on the ground and create conditions for a negotiated end to the conflict and an end to Assad's rule. Using stand-off weapons, without boots on the ground, and at minimal risk to our men and women in uniform, we can significantly degrade Assad's air power and ballistic missile capabilities and help to establish and defend safe areas on the ground. In addition, we must begin a large-scale effort to train and equip moderate, vetted elements of the Syrian opposition with the game-changing weapons they need to shift the military balance against Assad's forces.

Very nice....probably taken from real life gooberment action. What’s sad is that in ‘real life’ the lone civilian female would be paying for it all.
Those two morons won’t rest til they get us into WWIII.
“During that trip, McCain and Graham both called for the release of Muslim Brotherhood leaders with McCain making news by calling Mursis ouster a ‘coup’.”
Does Jailed Brotherhood leader have goods on Obama?
LLS: “The US Military must take limited action against Senators mccain and graham”.
I agree with you! Americans have no business getting killed over there for a muslim problem. We are due for some good old isolationism.
I think they would make better human shields for AQ and Islamists on their front in Syria. Lindsey looks good in code pink.
Alright. One hydrogen in the heart should do it.
Then, being as the US would be the belligerent in this case (Syria having not attacked us, and a state of war thereby existing), the Constitution requires that Congress declare War.
FOADJM&LG! It’s not you or your kids being sent to 3rd-world crapholes to support active enemies of America.
NO BLOOD FOR ISLAMOFASCISM!
Leading from behind, Barry sent a fifth US warship armed with ballistic missiles steaming to Syria today.
Pansy boy is itching to help the MB and his Sunni friends.
Gibbets for all three of them if the SHTF!
It’s all fun and games till the first Russians get shot.
I doubt that ANYTHING has been clear to old buzzard McCain for many years.
I’d like to know what the NSA has on McCain and his Georgian gangster friends. If he’d had his way, we’d have started a war with Russia by now.
Does McCain look at Lindsay as a RINO and vice versa?
We had 140,000 highly motivated killers in Iraq and another 100,000 in Afganistan. included with the enough naval and air power that could turn the Arab world to dust.
Over the course of a month and without the Rats talking about how bad America is, we could have taken out Iraq, Syria and Iran, turned North Waristan into a parking lot and sent Pakistan a message.
stay out, stay out, stay out - we have no dog in this fight!!!!
I think both McCain and Graham have reached the point where everyone should just reject what they want *precisely* because they want it.
Leads me to believe that the Obama administration must have a manure load of crap on these two Rhinos. Girlfriends? Prostitutes? E-mails to their women friends? Or worse?
I would be interested to know how many republicans are being blackmailed by the Obummer “spy program.”
These two are seriously nuts.
