McCain says no to US or NATO military intervention in Syria
Source: The Hill

Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) said Monday that he doesn't think it would be appropriate for the U.S. or NATO to intervene militarily in Syria the way they had in Libya.

McCain, the ranking member of the Senate Armed Services Committee, has been an advocate for U.S. intervention in Libya, but said that he didn't think similar action would have much additional benefit in Syria.

"I don't see a scenario right now or anytime in the near future where the injection of U.S. or NATO military action would in any way beneficially help the situation, I'm sorry to say," McCain said on NBC's "Today" show.

15. Yeah! We'd be in Iran if he was POTUS & his timetable for occupying Iraq was 10Kyears, wasn't it?
He must have lost the PNAC map. Someone send it to him, please.

20. can't get his addled brain to encompass the idea, if there ain't a 50's song running through it.
probably never listened to Boney-M singing "Rivers of Babylon".
:evilgrin:

the pathetic, senile ass really needs to be put out to pasture.
he could pair up with donald trump - on dancing with the stars, grumpy old men edition.

sad he ends up this way, after his service and all.

4. I'm sure the phone is ringing in McCain's office...
"Uh yeah, hello, John--this is Bill Kristol, grand neocon pooba...I'd like to say that you're
not really helping our cause. You know the drill John. We laid it out on our wacky P-nacky
website...Iraq first, then Iran, then Syria and Lebanon...Yes John, I know we're skipping around
a bit...I understand your concern, but why you gotta dis the warmongering machine?"

10. Let me guess, like Egypt, Syria isn't a net exporter of oil? But Libya is?
Hard to connect the dots when they are printed so close together.

11. Shouldn't he be dead by now?
I mean really, wasn't one of the knocks about mccain during the election was that there was an 80% chance that he would die during his "Presidential" term of 4 years?

21. Seeing as he didn't become president & hasn't had to endure the subsequent extreme stress & strains
...which inevitably go with the job, that hypothesis still stands.

13. The oil reserves value on their military intervention spreadsheet wasn't high enough.
Sorry Syria, no "democracy" for you.
