What planet is John McCain on? What is his obsession for arming “brave people” who are not fighting for liberty, but are fighting for Allah and would just as willingly behead him? It is plainly obvious that he doesn’t see this fact. These “brave people,” as he describes them, are Islamists, al Qaeda, al Nusra and a hoard of other maniacal religious fanatics whose lust for death and martyrdom is fundamental to their religious belief. They don’t give a damn about Jeffersonian democracy.
In fact, these “brave people” may have perpetrated the very atrocity—a chemical weapons attack, that has the Obama administration in a snit. Secretary of State John Kerry has claimed the chemical attack on August 21, 2013 was a sarin attack. However, the Obama administration has yet to disclose the evidence to prove that the Assad regime authorized it. The Obama administration seems to have concluded that only the Assad regime could possibly possess the deadly sarin weapons. This is an entirely naive and narrow minded perspective to hold in such a volatile, ruthless region of our world.
In May, a UN Commission Of Inquiry found strong evidence that the “rebels” had used sarin gas:

Obama has demonstrated his arrogant belief that if he says something it will become reality and to question him is a racist affront. Yet, none of his foreign policies have improved America’s standing in the world or given us any additional diplomatic clout. He openly backed the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt and their rapid “fundamental transformation” of that country’s government completely alienated the Egyptian populace resulting in the unrest we see today. The Egyptian military is all that is holding the country together and all that is safeguarding the Suez Canal.
There is almost nothing to be gained in continuing to meddle in Middle East affairs except defending the civil and human rights of non-Muslims. We would do ourselves a world of good to complete the Keystone pipeline and further reenforce our domestic oil production, but Obama’s flagrant hatred of oil and coal just weakens us further.
Obama is not an idiot; he is an ideologue and a fool … I have no idea what is wrong with John McCain, but there isn’t much right with him …
“A responsibility to take action”? The President is not worried about making good on his word—he is worried that he looks like the cowardly ass that he is. We, as Americans, are not obligated to agree with the President on ANYTHING, regardless of the malcontent liberal opinion that ANY criticism of Obama is racist. And we’re not obligated to be the World’s police force—Obama said that himself! The President, with his “Red Line” statement, shot his mouth off and wrote a check he cannot cash. Now, the arrogant demagogue is determined to stick his nose into a fight where there are NO good alternatives and NO ‘good guys’ to back.
The president’s foreign policies are an unmitigated disaster. Obama continues to act with authority he does not legally possess and no one seems willing to stand up to him. The American people are ill-informed due to the journalistic malpractice of the “main stream media” and are unaware of the seriousness of our circumstance. My good friend and fellow patriot, Brent Allen Parrish (aka Sard) recently wrote a very good article explaining the complications of U.S. military action in Syria:
There is more evidence to suggest that Syrian rebels are responsible for the recent chemical attack east of Damascus. From a Washington Times article by Shaun Waterman dated May 6, 2013:
Testimony from victims strongly suggests it was the rebels, not the Syrian government, that used Sarin nerve gas during a recent incident in the revolution-wracked nation, a senior U.N. diplomat said Monday.
Carla del Ponte, a member of the U.N. Independent International Commission of Inquiry on Syria, told Swiss TV there were “strong, concrete suspicions but not yet incontrovertible proof,” that rebels seeking to oust Syrian strongman Bashar al-Assad had used the nerve agent.
But she said her panel had not yet seen any evidence of Syrian government forces using chemical weapons, according to the BBC, but she added that more investigation was needed.

Syrian Rebels discuss using Sarin Gas
Whatever the case may be, there are no U.S. strategic interests in Syria. The only thing that I see that would be a good choice of military action in the Middle East would be a concentrated, coordinated and significant strike on Iran’s nuclear ambitions with Israel as a co-participant. However, given Obama’s zeal for insulting our allies, I seriously doubt that any such effort will be made.
Or, are there U.S. strategic interests in Syria? What about European strategic interests in Syria?

Then there is the unspoken possibility that U.S. military action in Syria would provoke an attack on Israel, not to mention the ire of Russia and Iran. This action, if taken, is poorly conceived and does not take into account the repercussions that will surely result. It only serves to placate the anxieties of an over inflated ego and possibly the pockets of his crony capitalist supporters.
