A Fucking Bloodthirsty Lunatic
- The GOP and Dems have already been violating the Constitution by conducting an undeclared war against the Syrian government.
- This bipartisan, unconstitutional warmongering is one of many reasons I no longer call myself a Republican. I consider myself a member of the Trump Party which perhaps has five members of Congress behind it. The rest of the GOP has gone insane.
(The Hill) - Senate Armed Services Committee Chairman John McCain (R-Ariz.) on Wednesday urged the administration to consider a more forceful military component in its approach to ending the Syrian civil war.
"The Obama administration’s approach to Syria has failed miserably. Now is the time for a new strategy—including the necessary military component—that can achieve this more realistic objective," McCain said in a Wall Street Journal op-ed.
The call comes as White House Cabinet officials prepare to meet on Wednesday to discuss new options to end the civil war in Syria, after U.S.-Russia talks to cooperate in Syria were officially suspended on Monday.
|Proof that Republicans are idiots|
This year Republican voters had their chance to throw out this
bloodthirsty loon, but noooo. GOP voters licked the
boots of this warmonger clown.
McCain laid out several military options against Assad, including grounding his air force, implementing safe zones and providing more weapons to vetted anti-regime groups.
"The U.S. and its coalition partners must issue an ultimatum to Mr. Assad—stop flying or lose your aircraft—and be prepared to follow through," he said.
As far as Russian aircraft — which have been flying strikes against rebel groups in support of Assad since September 2015, McCain said the U.S. should threaten to strike their aircraft, too.
"If Russia continues its indiscriminate bombing, we should make clear that we will take steps to hold its aircraft at greater risk," he said.
"At the same time, we must provide more robust military assistance to the vetted Syrian opposition groups that are fighting the regime. The only way to isolate and target extremists on the battlefield is to make moderate groups more capable of fighting successfully on their own," he added.Read More . . . .
