McCain opposes Syria strike resolution

Quote:[n]McCain opposes Syria strike resolution[/b]

Sen. John McCain, President Obama's biggest cheerleader on Capitol Hill for a strike in Syria, said Wednesday that he would not support a Senate panel's draft resolution authorizing the use of force.

"There are a number of people who are unhappy," McCain told reporters on Capitol Hill. Asked if he supported the measure, McCain said, "In its current form, I do not."

The decision is a setback for the administration's effort to win swift support from Congress for an attack.

McCain, who has long favored stepped-up U.S. involvement in the Syrian civil war, said he opposes the resolution crafted by fellow Sens. Bob Menendez of New Jersey and Bob Corker of Tennessee. The resolution puts a 90-day limit on action and says no American troops can be sent to Syria.

McCain reportedly wants more than cruise missile strikes and "limited" action; he wants to tilt the direction of the civil war. He has, though, said he doesn't want combat troops on the ground in Syria.

McCain is getting so out there further and further every day I cannot for the life of me understand why he hasn't been kicked out of the party. As far as I'm concerned the man is a traitor to this nation and the constitution along the lines of Obama. I honestly can't think of a single conservative value he has been steadfast on. The more time goes on the more he almost seems to be as close as we've ever seen to the very embodiment of a fictional manchurian candidate. I also do not understand how someone who has seen war can champion it in the way he has. I really hope that the man is just losing his mind in his old age and that the outlandish things he does and says are not the result of a mentally sound mind. We are so close to WW3 right now, it is scary and that turncoat is leading the charge. The sad thing is if this does get out of control nobody will be held to account just like nobody was after the Iraq and Afghanistan debacles

You would think that as a human being he would have the respect for the innocent lives he is in part holding in the balance such that he could refrain from playing fucking video games on his phone for a whole 3 hours before he aids and abets our criminal regime in its war crimes and sending our young people to die so far from our homes so Obama can salvage his failures in the worlds largest high stakes dick measuring contest. I shudder to think of the state we would be in after both Obama and McCain had had their separate shots at ravaging what was left of our country after the 9/11 explosion of government authority. I think if McCain had won many conservates would have become complicit in the farce know as the war on terror and that by now we would be sitting with our big brother telescreens watching us wherever we go al la 1984 protecting us from the state manufactured Emanuel Goldsteins.

Maybe we should have WW3, after the radio active dust settles, what is left of the former super powers of the world, might just be to busy trying to survive, too go out and start crapping all over the world for a few hundred years.Shrug

You think what remains of the US Gov't in that eventuality would abide a possible mineshaft gap :O?

Does that mean he can get shot down over Syria? He needs to get back in that cock pit!
A gun rack in a pick-up is not for holding guns. Its a place for women to hold on to. Smile

He does seem to be getting, what's a nice way of putting it--- "erratic."

He's 77, and over five and a half years of those were spent as a POW, so who knows how old his body thinks it is.

Is it possible his behavior is related to deteriorating mental faculties?

In all seriousness, I do think his mental health is deteriorating (factor in his time as a POW).

If nothing else, PTSD has to be a factor. Those guys endured some serious hell in the Hanoi Hilton.

McCain should just retire and enjoy whatever lifespan he has left. He's sure not doing us any good at this point.
I don't suffer from insanity.
I enjoy every minute of it.

What really scares the shit out of me is that this man in his current state could have had his finger on the button today if things had worked out differently.

Reagan seems to have been pretty far gone by the time he retired from office... but he had excellent people around him, as McCain would have.
