Brit General Sir David Richards say McCain's no fly zone is insufficient....
Republican Senator John McCain of Arizona, who has demanded action such as imposing a no-fly zone over Syria has proven he is neither a strategist, nor is he schooled in the operational arts, nor is he a tactician, nor is he a general, nor is he a soldier.
"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.
So if Obama follows McCain's advice the US will be one step closer to the Middle East morass.
