Senator John McCain assurances to the world that the United States will not engage in future Middle Eastern wars, must have been a very welcome message to the likes of Syria’s Assad, Iran’s Ahmadinejad, and the likes of the Bahrain, the Saudi, the Yemeni, and other dictators in the Middle East.
Since, in spite of United State involvement in Lybia, the United States has done little to curb President’s Assad brutal murder of Syrian civilians, McCain’s assurances that the United States will not engage in future Middle Eastern wars, must be a very welcome signal to Syria’s dictator.
McCain suggestion has extremely harmful implications, his statement regarding future involvement, or rather lack of involvement, in future Middle East wars by the United States, must not only be a welcome word to Syria’s Assad, but to Iran’s Ahmadinejad whose nuclear power plant is about to go on-line, with nuclear-bomb grade Uranium to follow shortly.
Taking the military option off in the Middle East weakens United States status as a world power, perhaps beyond a point-of-no- return. If Senator McCain spoke for the GOP, one may ask: Are the Republicans now those weak on National Security?
