Syrian government and the opposition accuse each other of using chemical weapons. The US considers this a “red line”– and two US senators are now urging Washington to declare war in response to alleged use of the weapons.

I don't care what it takes," Graham told Foreign Policy’s The Cable. "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."

As the Assad government and the opposition throw out accusations over the use of chemical weapons and the US is assessing the situation, two US senators are urging the president to go to war. Sens. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) and John McCain (R-Ariz.) released a statement on Wednesday, urging President Obama to ‘take immediate action’ and consider deploying troops.

"President Obama has said that the use of weapons of mass destruction by Bashar Assad is a 'red line' for him that 'will have consequences,'" the statement reads. "If today's reports are substantiated, the President's red line has been crossed, and we would urge him to take immediate action to impose the consequences he has promised".

Obama "holy" war?

That's a bunch of bull...Graham and McCain is recommending air strikes not ground forces...whoever wrote that article is a lying POS....btw, post your source.

Obama is probably quivering in his male thongs not knowing what to do. Still hasnt figured out what to do about Benghazi.

He might be, but he learned how to do it from the Chickenhawks like Cheney and Rumsfeld. Now go find those WMDs and the Iraqi oil that was going to pay for the war.

Speaking Thursday from the rotunda of the Russell Senate Office Building, McCain stated,“All the things that people said would happen if we intervened in Syria have happened because we didn’t intervene. Every day that goes by it increases the difficulty of stabilizing Syria and it is to our everlasting shame that we did not lead.”

A former presidential nominee and long-standing member of the Senate Armed Services Committee, McCain this year joined the Senate Foreign Relations Committee. He had been urging more active U.S. engagement in Syria for months.

McCain went on to tell Alhurra that the ongoing war is Syria is “one of the more shameful chapters in American history.” He remarked that the United States should not base its involvement on whether or not Syrian President Bashar al-Assad had used chemical weapons, and added that the U.S. should have intervened a long time ago.

So, McCan't is waging his holy war all across the middle east?

Do you even read what you post?

Do you comprehend what you read?

"McCain was emphatic that he does not want American troops to go into Syria, but instead wants to create a safe zone – as he put it,“ a secure area in Syria where the Syrian National Committee can operate, where they can train, organize and equip and make sure the weapons go to the right people, not the wrong people.”

Create a safe zone?

Where they can train?

In a secure area?

Like giving an arsonist a book of matches at fuel refinery, as he promises not to use them.

McCain and you know exactly what will happen, all it would take is one bullet or bomb.

Our next war.

I love how all the tea bags here are trying to quote McCain. Yep, McCain, the one whom just said that the people of Syria will welcome us and will be upset of we do not invade them.

Same douche who said the iraqis were going to accept us with open arms and treat us as liberators.

Republicans; i am sorry that McCain is the best you can come up with for foreign policy, but he is nuts. Besides being nuts he has been regularly wrong on iraq.

But i guess if you want yet another WAR, then be my guess and start advocating to send more troops to yet another middle eastern country and lets keep funding the oppisition. The same oppisition you will be mongering for more war with in a few years.
