Every uprising has led to Islamist regimes assuming power, either McRINO doesn’t care or is dense enough to think it won’t happen again.
(The Hill) — Sens. John McCain (R-Ariz.) and Joe Lieberman (I-Conn.) visited a Syrian refugee camp on the Turkey-Syria border Tuesday, as they accused the international community of failing the people of Syria and called for military action against President Bashar al-Assad’s forces.
The pair met with leaders of the Syrian National Council and Free Syrian Army and members of the anti-Assad resistance during their trip to the Middle East.
The senators have led the call for more action in Syria, including supplying arms to the opposition and air strikes. The Obama administration has opposed supplying arms to the rebels, warning that it could cause further militarization.
McCain and Lieberman said that the international community is “failing the people of Syria” by only providing humanitarian aid. While they acknowledged that the Obama administration was now providing communications equipment to the opposition, they said, “that doesn’t do much against tanks.”
