McCain an Graham will settle only for large scale war #syria


“We cannot in good conscience support isolated military strikes in Syria that are not part of an overall strategy that can change the momentum on the battlefield, achieve the president’s stated goal of (Syrian President Bashar al-) Assad’s removal from power, and bring an end to this conflict, which is a growing threat to our national security interests,” they said in a statement.

My good God. McCain and his Pais only want a war that is just like Iraq. They will settle for nothing less than another 10+ years war whereby my son will have to be drafted.

Go ahead, vote these monsters in again.

  1. It is unlikely military conscription will resume. While it is true the one reason for ending the draft in the waning days of Vietnam was to mute the crescendo of war protests, an equally important agenda was to keep the sons of affluence from becoming fertilizer in a rice patty.
    Since Nam, nothing has changed. Yellow Elephant thinking still dominates civilian control of military policy. The true purpose of these protracted tilts at ideological windmills is maximize profits for defense contractors while minimizing risks for the ruling elites. As is common throughout history, rich men start a war and then expect poor men to fight it.
    When the Pentagon need more boots on the ground in the 2007 Iraq surge, it recalled troops rather than conscript fresh fresh blood to be spilled on foreign soil in yet another failed adventure in military diplomacy. Some were then aging veterans of Nam as well as the Persian Gulf invasion.

  2. As a continental European (by my very nature more pacifist than most American) I was dumbstruck by this news.

    They are not only monsters, they are also completely stupid for this intervention would replace the dictatorship of Assad by an Islamist theocracy whi´ch would be far worse.

    And this will reinforce Muslim hatred against Western imperialism.

    I’ve the strong feeling that Obama’s policy of change is a farce.

    Lovely greetings in Christ.

  3. This IS WAR!

    The war is AGAINST us, Humanity, because the next war after this will be with sticks and clubs. IF there’s anything alive after, that is.

    You can see, that whatever this creatures are, they are NOT Human!

    They and their demon horde have such a VIRULENT HATRED for Humans and other Living things on this Planet.

      1. In contemplating the specter of nuclear annihilation, Albert Einstein famously pointed out: “I know not with what weapons World War III will be fought, but World War IV will be fought with sticks and stones.”
        In an ancillary but nevertheless relevant observation concerning the present situation, it is probably worth pointing out that Republican talk of a government shut down and adolescent-like tantrums over the debt ceiling have disappeared from the news. This suggests a behind the scenes agreement to give neoconservative another cherished Middle Eastern military intervention in exchange for continued social spending. As a result, among rightwingers, only Neoliberals and Libertarians are grousing about Syria.

  4. From Defense News, that I read regularly when I was a warmonger.

    Defense News has one purpose, to sell military equipment, for profits. There will not be a WWIII, because that would eliminate the requirement for high tech arms.
    We’ll bleed a little, not a fatal wound. Everyone else will bleed a lot
    It would be refreshing if congress votes no on aggression. There’s no shortage of “next conflicts”.
