On most issues, John McCain and the Fox News crowds are just babbling as trigger happy morons whose every action, they say, is to save Western Civilization from collapsing.
But on the issue of Syria, I do go along with John McCain in saying Obama is an abject failure.
Now, I DO UNDERSTAND his reluctance to act against Assad, even before Putin sent in his soldiers and fighter jets to Latakia, from where they fly out daily to bomb the rest of the country.
And Obama's philosophy is: I am not getting involved, even if 500,000 or 1M or 2M Syrians die; it is not our problem.
Yes, the US can't and should get involved in every self-started war around the world.
But if Obama's intention is to "destroy ISIL," which is what his latest phraseology is, how the fuck are you going to do that, since it is ASSAD who got ISIS/ISIL started in the first place?
ISIS terrorists didn't pop out of thin air; it came about, with more and more recruitment over the years BECAUSE OF ASSAD and his regime.
Isn't the way to destroy ISIS to destroy ITS CAUSE in the first place?
When you draw a line, whatever the fuck it is, and YOU FAIL TO FOLLOW THROUGH, what is Assad or the world going to think of you?
There's one thing I like to do and it is to slap Obama silly. We elected you to MAKE TOUGH DECISIONS, not to make yourself look good in your own head. When you draw a "red line," you had better follow through and not look like a fuckin' wimp. I just don't care what others, FOX folks, say... but when YOU YOURSELF DRAW A CERTAIN "DO NOT CROSS" LINE, YOU HAD BETTER FUCKIN' BACK IT UP, OR SHUT THE FUCK UP.
The deaths of Syrians are SLOWLY PUSHING the 500,000 mark, now, and over half the population is displaced, both internally and abroad, with millions of children and women suffering, and tens of thousands slowly dying... daily, in YouTube.
If there is one thing that could cost HILLARY this election, it is not crazy Ape Man Trump's BS; it is THIS very Syria issue... this abject failure of Obama... this wish-washing, wimpish attitude of his.
