McCain, Graham ‘Furious’ as White House Changes Course on Syria, Assad

According to reports, two warmongering U.S. senators are “furious” that the White House has changed policy in Syria and wants the Syrians themselves to decide their own future rather than have it imposed upon them by the West.

Sens. John McCain and Lindsey Graham, the legislators from Arizona and South Carolina, are reportedly fuming mad that the U.S. is no longer seeking to overthrow Syrian leader Bashar al-Assad. Instead, the White House’s official policy is to let the Syrian people decide their own fate.

On April 30, U.S. ambassador to the UN Nikki Haley said the White House’s “priority is no longer to sit there and focus on getting Assad out.”

The next day, White House press spokesman Sean Spicer told the press corps: “We believe that there’s a need to de-escalate violence and to have a political process through which Syrians will decide their own political future . . . .”

Incredibly, despite this good news, McCain and Graham were reportedly “furious” that the U.S. is changing course.

For a number of years now, the U.S. has been funding and arming radical terrorists in Syria and Iraq in an insane attempt to overthrow the stable government of Syria.

Apparently, McCain and Graham have wanted to do to Syria what was done to Libya in 2011. That year, Western powers bombed Libya and funded and armed radical groups. Ultimately, this  led to the the brutal, bloody assassination of former Libyan leader Muammar Qadaffi on Oct. 20, 2011. Graphic video of the assassination can be seen online by clicking here.

The two warmongering senators have never met a war they didn’t like—even when it is not in the interests of the U.S. While McCain was in Vietnam as a pilot, Graham, who was in the military, never saw any combat. As a pencil pusher, Graham did paperwork in the U.S. for soldiers who were being shipped off to wars in the Middle East.

7 Comments on McCain, Graham ‘Furious’ as White House Changes Course on Syria, Assad

  1. Sorry, that should be: “neither senator actually said he was “furious”…”

  2. We know the neocons (who orchestrated 911 and the War on Terror) are psychopaths and warmongerers, and McCain and (the, I might add, effeminate) Graham are two of the worst. But I think it’s important to point out that neither senator actually said they were “furious” over the apparent change in policy. The RT article you cite used that subjective word to describe the tone of the Senators’ responses. “I fear it is a grave mistake” (Graham) is not the tone of fury. Nevertheless, these two are hawks, to put it mildly, that we should all long to be rid of.
    (btw, how many “tests” to confirm that one is not a robot does one have to take? I just did something like 12. Isn’t that a bit much?)

  3. Sanity comes from the strangest places. Thank you White House.

    If John McCain is furious then I am ecstatic. It’s difficult to sell arms to Nato without a government to topple. Poor John!

  4. McCain, the murderous descendant of Cain,the murderer follow his murderous destiny. His zionist fate is sealed. This murderer went to kill to VietNam and ended at Viet Cong hands “Hotel Hilton” in Hanoi…I just wonder which khazarian snake freed him from there!
    He deserved death penalty right then and there! But soon, that murderer and war criminal will be finished by the final war of Armageddon(WW3) where Ama-Ruca,the earthly copy of Serpent in the sky, shall be slain by Russian GEORGE-THE DRAGON SLAYER !!! See the centre of the Double Headed Eagle of Russian Federation…And the snakes in Ama-Ruca,from the Synagogue of U.SAtan have taken you on this collision path with Russia(and China)…

  5. Senators McCain and Graham have been advocates of an aggressive and hegemonic policies in the Middle East. They failed in the run up to the 2003 Iraq War. Their continued support of the Afghanistan war has no end in site. We are allied with some of the most repressive regimes in the area—Saudi Arabia, Qatar, Bahrain, Jordan, Egypt, Turkey, etc. In fact, their concern about “terrorism” rings hollow as Saudi Arabia is the leader in radicalization and Turkey was central to the growth of ISIS. Their regard for democracy does not extend to the Gulf kingdoms, Jordan, or Egypt. They would gladly support a war with Iran to protect our oil interests.

    Mr. Trump’s position on Syria, if true, recognizes that our effort in trying to topple Asad failed, and only destroyed a country so as to revive al Qaeda and create a new draw for jihadists. McCain-Graham and their ilk are responsible for the consequences of advocating regime change and greater US military involvement.
