John McCain, Lindsey Graham Press Obama On Syria Intervention:Obama the warmonger is at it again.
Syrian Rebels To Receive $123 Million More In Aid From Obama. He can't balance our budget yet he can spend $123 million on killing.
Graham and McCain, two of the most vocal proponents for U.S. involvement in Syria, were quick to use the latest reports to apply a new round of pressure for intervention.
"That should include the provision of arms to vetted Syrian opposition groups, targeted strikes against Assad’s aircraft and Scud missile batteries on the ground, and the establishment of safe zones inside Syria to protect civilians and opposition groups," the senators continued in their statement. "If today’s reports are substantiated, the tragic irony will be that these are the exact same actions that could have prevented the use of weapons of mass destruction in Syria."
Graham went as far as to endorse putting U.S. troops on the ground in Syria in an interview with Foreign Policy, seemingly suggesting that preemptive action could be warranted.
"Absolutely, you've got to get on the ground. There is no substitute for securing these weapons," Graham said. "I don't care what it takes. We need partners in the region. But I'm here to say, if the choice is to send in troops to secure the weapons sites versus allowing chemical weapons to get in the hands of some of the most violent people in the world, I vote to cut this off before it becomes a problem."
Damn that Obama running up the debt again!
