McCain Slips into Syria to Meet with Rebels

Sen. John McCain Monday slipped into Syria from Turkey Monday and met with Syrian rebel leaders, who appealed for direct U.S. military aid, the Daily Beast reported.

Sen. McCain has been outspoken in his harsh criticism of the Obama administration for not having helped the rebels long ago to topple the regime of Syrian President Bashar Assad.

The American government is hesitant to get involved in another foreign war, especially with the clear presence of  Al Qaeda and other Islamic terrorist group that have joined the battle against Assad.

Sen. McCain met with Gen. Salem Idris, the leader of the Supreme Military Council of the Free Syrian Army. and several leaders of Free Syrian Army, before he crossed the border back into Turkey after several hours.

“We need American help to have change on the ground; we are now in a very critical situation,” Idris told the Daily Beast.

“What we want from the U.S. government is to take the decision to support the Syrian revolution with weapons and ammunition, anti-tank missiles and anti-aircraft weapons,” Idris said. “Of course we want a no-fly zone and we ask for strategic strikes against Hezbollah both inside Lebanon and inside Syria.”

  1. Did you know that Damascus Syria has historically remained inhabited from the time of it’s founding until today? Despite military losses it has always been populated. Yet Isaiah 17 states that God will take it away from being a city. That has not happened as of yet. If God chooses to use mans weapons of mass destruction as one of the tools to bring that about then today’s news concerning Assad should get you interested enough to take a longer look at Isaiah 17. I’m not saying it is, but it looks like it could be. In addition Iran continues determined in it’s march in the development of nuclear weapons. Current intelligence seems uncertain of when Iran will get the bomb and Israel cannot afford to gamble with this. Yet here we are with the clock ticking. In July of 2012 I wrote a small book that lists some of what the Bible says will happen in the end times as well as what will happen during the period known as the seven (360 day) year tribulation and other soon to take place events. I don’t accept donations and it’s free. It’s about 6 or 7 pages, so it’s a short read. I encourage you to have a look: http://www.booksie.com/religion_and_spirituality/book/richard_b_barnes/after-the-rapture-whats-next.

    Must as I like Sen. McCain, the U.S. has **NO** business in Syria, not even providing arms to one side or the other. Has McCain forgotten the lessons of Afghanistan when the U.S. armed the Taliban to fight the Soviets? The arms later were turned against us and American soldiers died. It’s time to remember the Monroe Doctrine; Syria’s civil war is **NOT** our war; for the U.S., getting involved is a lose-lose situation. For once, Obama’s foot dragging is the right inaction for the times.

  3. I am an American retired military man… and I just have to ask the obvious question….Whiskey Tango Foxtrot (WTF) over! I turn on the TV this Sunday and watch John McCain pumping out talk about launching cruise missiles into Syria.
    As McCain was once a military commander, he should know that he is NOT the President of the U.S. nor is he the secretary of defense. There is only one reason why McCain is spewing this rhetoric…its his NEOCON backers in the U.S.

    Here is a news flash for Netanyahu….go and fight your own F#$@ing Wars, using your own budget and soldiers. We in the U.S. are getting tired of this BullSH$t…
