Senator McCain super sad about not arming ISIS

In the midst of battling a recently diagnosed brain tumor (God bless him), Senator McCain found time to blast President Trump for allegedly ceasing the arming of so-called moderate rebel groups in Syria. It’s a position as boring and predictable as it is deadly and foolish. This senator has rarely found a region of the world he didn’t want to bomb.

Here’s the (insane) statement from Senator McCain’s website:

If these reports are true, the administration is playing right into the hands of Vladimir Putin. Making any concession to Russia, absent a broader strategy for Syria, is irresponsible and short-sighted. The administration has yet to articulate its vision for Syria beyond the defeat of ISIL (Because regime change in Iraq and Libya have been so effective!), let alone a comprehensive approach to the Middle East. A key pillar of American strategy must be the removal of Assad from power (Uh, No.) as part of an end to the brutal conflict in Syria, which has fueled ISIL’s growth through its cruelty, extended malign Iranian influence, and undermined broader regional stability.

In truth, it’s the reckless regime change policies of neoconservatives like Senator McCain that have brought chaos to the Middle East and facilitated the rise of ISIL/ISIS.

Here’s hoping the American people have had enough of these foolish policies!

By the way, don’t let the #FakeNews distract you with Russia hysteria in regards to this development. As Rare points out, In 2014, 22 senators voted to block the arming of the Syrian rebels. Are these all puppets of Putin as the fading establishment would have us believe?
