Senator John McCain says “I’ve been to Syria, I’ve meet them, I know them”. That old senile freak has no clue what or who he knows, all he knows is he wants to go to war and fight for and with Al Qaeda. This is absolutely no different than us arming the Afghans to take out the Russians, the very same people we helped out have been attacking us relentlessly for years, some before that. Here are just a few of the well known ones.
Embassy bombings in Africa
The USS Cole
’93 Trade Center bombing
Pan Am over Lockerbie Scotland
Marine barracks in Beirut
The underwear bomber (luckily stopped)
The Time Square bomber (pure luck the bomb malfunctioned, it was in place)
To top it off we have been in nonstop conflict and troop presence in the Middle East for 23 straight years. I was in Desert Storm, I hated the region then, and I hate it more now.
So now the brain dead want to add Syria to the list, and they seem to think it will be different this time. Sometimes I really think our dumb asses in charge WANT WWIII to break out, and they won’t stop until they get it. There is the outside possibility they think they can turn the region around. HA! It’s been the same way since its inception, and will never change short of it being turned into a giant sheet of glass.
So, I say watch them like a hawk, if they make a move on us, we take them out…totally out. Until then, let them slaughter each other.
