Two Senators Say U.S. Should Arm Syrian Rebels

"Senators John McCain and Lindsey Graham laid out proposals that would put the United States squarely behind the movement to topple President Bashar al-Assad of Syria."

EDIT

Mr. McCain said the United States would not have to send weapons directly to the opposition but could work through “third-world countries” and the Arab League.

Mr. Graham also endorsed arming those who are fighting Mr. Assad, and he suggested that the Arab League, which has called for Mr. Assad’s departure, could be a conduit. A byproduct of a more interventionist policy would be to weaken Iran.

“Breaking Syria apart from Iran could be as important to containing a nuclear Iran as sanctions,” Mr. Graham said. “If the Syrian regime is replaced with another form of government that doesn’t tie its future to the Iranians, the world is a better place.”

So much fail, where to begin?

Didn't we get involved in Vietnam this way?

Send US arms through the Arab League? How many will "fall off the back of the truck" to be picked up by radicals?

Why does our government give arms so freely to people halfway around the world, yet makes it so difficult for upright honest citizens to own them here?

Well, I will say this--Business is good if you are a US military arms contractor!

Those who make peaceful revolution impossible will make violent revolution, inevitable.

"U.S. should arm Syrian rebels."

I think there was a typo, it was supposed to read:

"Gasoline should be $10 a gallon."

..there, fixed it.

"Alas! I believe in the virtue of birds. And it only takes a feather for me to die laughing."

Let them start a "Kill the furriners" money bomb

to collect private donations to finance their murderous intent.

I want no part of it.

Ditto Bros

What a shock. The ditto brothers Jonny Boy and Miss Lindsey agree we need more bloodshed. Who woulda thunk it?

Russia and China etc.

Good policy, nothing like bringing in boatloads of supplies in from Russia and China in return.

I am sure Israel will be pleased to hear this. ie. an increasingly militarized Syria. ;)

Under the new law of the NDAA, I authorize the U.S. Military to detain these individuals immediately with extreme prejudice and with the intent to kill if these known terrorist are seen in anyway shape or form to be carrying weapons.

TO wit these said persons shall be detained indefinitely and placed in an unknown location for their safekeeping, as to which time they will be water boarded and tortured under the Patriot Act, in order to receive from said persons the truth of their dealings with the world.

McCain and Graham are domestic terrorists

Hanging would be mercy for those two.

I'd settle for throwing them

I'd settle for throwing them in prison for the rest of their lives.
