Default War monger McCain: Give weapons to moderate Syrian rebels who are being beaten by al-

War monger McCain: Give weapons to moderate Syrian rebels who are being beaten by al-Qaeda and Syrian army so they can kill more Syrians.

Many Free Syria Army soldiers fear that without heavy weapons they cannot win the war
A senior rebel commander with the Free Syrian Army has been shot and killed by jihadis. As Paul Wood reports, the killing is part of an escalating struggle within the armed uprising between moderates and Islamists linked to al-Qaeda.
The Free Syrian Army commander, stocky, bearded, dressed in camouflage, oozed menace and seethed with righteous anger.
We were speaking about the biggest jihadi group in Syria, the Nusra Front, who had kidnapped his brother.
"I know the names of all their emirs [leaders]. They will have nowhere to hide. This will be all-out war," he said.
He explained that he was now free to take his revenge because he had just paid $50,000 (33,000) to get his brother out.
He had hated to do this because Nusra would just spend the money on weapons to use against the FSA.
He told me they had sent a suicide bomber to infiltrate his command post, killing 12 of his men.
They were able to do that, he complained bitterly, only because he had sent most of his troops to fight in Qusayr, which later fell to the regime.

There might be another side to this, which has not been exposed completely as of yet.

There is talk that Benghazi was a staging point for arms to the rebels with the CIA in charge. Supposedly, this is why so many lies where told about what happened on the night of the attack.

I am not prepared to say who is the war monger until we get all the facts. The outcome might surprise many.

Default McCain wnats to bomb Syrian airfields even in face of Syrian rebel disfunction

Hey more proof of his war mongering attitude to bomb Syrian airbases even despite the disfunctional Syrian rebels. You have these rebels killing each other. Plus the Free Rebel army commander is not a real commander of anything other than a few bands of rebels. What is wrong with McCain, is he willing to send more American military members into a Vietnam type of conflic, as I believe he is. How many of these wounded warriors coming back missing limbs and organs and mental stability, doesn't he have empathy or is his attitude to sit safely in Washington and send American boys and girls into harms way.

Default Brits say McCain's no fly zone is insuffient....

Republican Senator John McCain of Arizona, who has demanded action such as imposing a no-fly zone over Syria got a negative reaction from Brits.

"If you wanted to have the material impact on the Syrian regime's calculations that some people seek, a no-fly zone per se is insufficient." General Sir David Richards, who steps down today as Chief of the Defence Staff, said that if the West wanted to see an end to President Bashar al Assad's regime it would have to step in as in it did to end the Gaddafi regime in Libya.
He also warned that if the regime suddenly collapsed then Britain "would have to act" to prevent chemical weapons falling into the hands of terror groups.

I heard this morning a part of a news piece about the White House wanting to arm the rebels. Not sure if this is true, as it came from the news, but let's see if this goes anywhere.

Before anyone jumps on me, please know that I do not want us involved!!!

The Obama administration doesn't care what happens in Syria because all they have prepare the way for Hillary. She can say she enherited the war from Obama when she is elected, but that is getting ahead of the story.

By all logic Obama should let the terrorists kill each other in Syria until they start to cross the borders of Turkey, Jordan and Lebanon creating more havoc. At this point, Kerry will go to the UN and ask for support of a US led armed invasion by a UN peace keeping force. In the meantime, Obama will play the humanitarian and see that the US supplies Syrian refugees in Jordan with food, water and shelter. War monger McCain will curry favor with these refuges by continuing to demand bombing Syrian airfields.

In the meantime, Obama will make a secret deal with Putin next month to settle the Syrain war. Assad will remain in power. The Kurds will get their part of Syria and even Iraq. The terrorists will continue battle each other in Turkey, Lebanon and Jordan.

And all of the sudden the Iranians will be attacked by the Israelis with the explanation that the Iranians had crossed the deadline. Afghanistan and Iraq will flare up again and the US will be caught up in this morass.

I hope they will all stay out of it, and protect Israel, and Jordan, and Turkey.

WE can't afford another war, both in money and manpower.

It would be nice to just see the U.S. mind it's own business for once. When did we become the wolds police?

Yes it would be great for the US to stop funding wars. They should have stopped a long time ago.
