    What is John McCain suggesting??

    John McCain was on FOX talking about how the President's "red line" regarding the use of chemical weapons by the Syrian government was written in disappearing ink.

    McCain then went on to say that Israel's recent air strike on a target in Syria is proof that Syria's air defenses can be penetrated.

    So..is John McCain suggesting that the US now take military action against the Syrian government without doing due diligence to be sure that the evidence of chemical weapon use is indeed legit..and that it was indeed the Syrian government who used them?

    Apparently..McCain didn't learn from the whole WMD in Iraq fiasco and would like to engage in another rush to judgement. Never mind that US intelligence is working to verify the evidence in the face of conflicting statements. Never mind that McCain has repeatedly accused the Administration of a rush to judgement following Benghazi. Apparently this rush to judgement would be okay for the war monger John McCain.

    Never mind also that the US is working desperately to come to some meeting of the minds with Russia..who like it or not..is a key player in the area.  Nope..never mind all of that. When John McCain sees an opportunity for war he jumps on it faster than Sarah Palin jumps on a reality show opportunity.

    McCain is an irrelevant politician, a maverick, if you will, who is a democrat in philosophy, but a republican in name.

    I stopped listening to him during the 2008 primaries.

    Remember the guys we sent aid to:

    UN investigators suspect that chemical weapons attacks in Syria were carried out by the country's rebels and not forces loyal to the regime.

    Former war crimes prosecutor Carla Del Ponte told Swiss TV that a UN commission has 'strong, concrete suspicions' that rebels had used the nerve agent sarin gas.

    'This was use on the part of the opposition, the rebels, not by the government authorities,' she said.

    Her comments came as fierce fighting continued in Syria, where rebels in the east claimed to have shot down a military helicopter, and government forces defended a military air base in the north for the secnod straight day.

    So about that "red line".....    is failing to enforce it immediately still another bad thing about Obama, in light of this suspicion?




    Time will tell. Why use such an aggressive term who you do not know what's going on is the question is my mind.

    Seems like he's on the right side of reality on this one.

    He didn't rush to action as the righty-tighties have been pushing.




    lol,

    he's draws a line in the sand; then does nothing when it's allegedly crossed; then when it turns out he ignorant to the facts and FOS anyway; so you respond with "see he's brilliant.

    who wants (and we know why he wants it) Obama to rush us to another war in the middle east without making sure we've got our story straight.

    Think about what you're saying. You note in another thread that the U.N. says it was the rebels - not Syria - who used WMDs. You now complain that Obama did not immediately topple the Syrian government in response.

     



    Easy mr emotional! lol

     

    I never said or want any of that simpleton deflection crap you posted above.

    what i did say was; why would Obama make such an aggressive comments when he clearly didnt KNOW what was going on?

    That it was amusing how "concerned" starting saying how smart obama was for doing nothing like he planned it this way along.

    try to not tear up with emotion so, you can actually read and think clearly.

    The conservatives who here made hay about the red line baffled me for these reasons.

    Drawing a line in the sand does not obligate you to put on a blindfold before hopping over.



    Don't try to put this on conservatives.  You forget, it was Obama, a radical, who drew the line.

    You really are dumb, it isn't an act... or public education.

    The entire world knows that Syria has WMD.

    Our intelligence agencies picked up suspected movements of these weapons.

    Obama warned Syria that if it was planning on using these weapons then that would be crossing a 'redline' and the US would (presumably) act in retaliation. 

    Unsubstantiated reports circulated indicating WMD was used by Syria.

    You bloviating neo-cons started jumping up and down demanding Obama rush into war.

    Obama ignored you kneejerk neo-cons.

    Now you are citing reports that it wasn't Syria but the rebels.

    Obama's patience and deliberate course of action has (maybe) been proven the correct path.

     

    It's you idiots that are standing around with your d**ks in your hands trying to blame Obama for.... what exactly?

    For not listening to your wrong-headed cries of action?

    For waiting for specific evidence?

    For keeping us out of another war started for the wrong reasons?

     

    So pick your junk up out of the dirt and stop tripping all over yourselves to try and blame someone else for your obvious miscalculations and utter ignorance.

     

     



    Seems like you are the ignorant one.  Let's review:

    obama draws a line in the sand.

    syria crosses it.

    obama blinks.

    and you interpret that as being , what? Discerning? 

    I see it as a continued fallure of a foreign policy borne out of a philosophy that starts with the concept that america is no great shakes.

    So now the rebels who we have sent millions in aid have crossed the redline so, what now?

    "How about waiting until there is definitive, independent evidence one way or the other and go from there?"

    NBC:

    On Sunday, the New York Times reported that administration officials realize the president’s previous “red line” comment on Syria -- which he made during an Aug. 2012 press conference -- was a mistake.

    Even the NY Times had to admit it, but the Obama bootlickers will never admit to even a minor error.
