This psycopath baby murderer should be put behind bars ASAP. Save civilians killing thousands other civilians? How insane does that sound to you? Are we seeing Lybia all over again? Will this madness ever stop? Gosh! I'm really tired of all this! This world became a zoo ran by nuts!
How far we need to go to put an end to it? In this pace, the world we will left to our children, will be nothing but ashes, and destruction!

McCain hasn't said this yet. Let's wait until he actually delivers this speech -- if he does.

If someone says they are going to kill an innocent person, isn't that pre-meditated and a stricter crime??

This guy needs to be imprisoned before one of our idiot leaders agree and follow through!!

What is it with McCain? He is up to his eyeballs with the Libya thing. He is the most vocal Republican in relation to Syria and Iran.

He has shadow government written all over him. They seem to be grooming Rubio as well.

McCain said, "the United States should lead an international effort to protect key population centers in Syria, especially in the north, through airstrikes on Assad's forces."

Be careful, McCain will play the cripple card on you or conjure up another "Gee Whiz Great Pick" VP running mate.

"...especially in the north...". Am I missing something here?? There was an uprising in homms and the surrounding area which was pushed back. There is no uprising in the north yet!!! Q the Kurds!! With arms smuggled in from turkey. Oh man, what a world.

John McCain eats and sleeps war. I think having been a prisoner of war in Vietnam has made him too eager to use our military to satisfy his appetite to settle the score within his own mind.

In a later statement, McCain stated:

"The only way to pay for this is more tax cuts for billionaires and Wall Street."

Unfortunetly innocents die everywhere every second. Your statement seems ill-informed and even more war-mongering than Macains. Which will kill even more innocents.,....by the way rebels with guns aren`t innocent.

I was responding to the source article linked in the OP which stated:

"The US should bomb the Syrian army to stop attacks on cities and carve out safe havens for rebel fighters, Senator John McCain is EXPECTED to say on Monday.

The Republican candidate for the presidency in 2008 will become the first senior figure in US politics to call publicly for military intervention in Syria, according to a COPY of a speech obtained by The Cable, a foreign policy blog.

Mr McCain WILL tell the Senate that America must secure the downfall of President Bashar al-Assad. 'Providing military assistance to the Free Syrian Army and other opposition groups is necessary, but at this late hour, that alone will not be sufficient to stop the slaughter and save innocent lives. The only realistic way to do so is with foreign air power,' he will tell the Senate.

The US air force should 'suppress enemy air defences in at least part of the country,' with aim of creating safe havens where 'opposition forces can organise and plan their political and military activities against Assad,' he WILL add.

Mr McCain is EXPECTED to say: 'The kinds of mass atrocities that Nato intervened in Libya to prevent in Benghazi are now a reality in Homs. Indeed, Syria today is the scene of some of the worst state-sponsored violence since Milosevic's war crimes in the Balkans, or Russia's annihilation of the Chechen city of Grozny.'"

The article was very clear that McCain had NOT YET delivered the speech.

Is the youtube video you posted from today's (05 Mar 2012) speech?

Thanks, Ranong. The youtube video was uploaded by 7even78 on 05 Mar 2012 (Monday) yesterday.

I googled "mccain's speech to congress 05 Mar 2012" and came up with nothing. I have not check the news sites yet.

In any case, everyone knows McCain is plugged into the MIC (military industrial complex). You would think that the Western countries would be exhausted by the prospect of more war at this point. Especially since an attack on Iran appears to be imminent.

But it seems the MIC is never too tired to make more money.

When I saw this yesterday I was stunned.

The audacity of this old windbag war-monger standing up before the American people and trying to make the case that we should involve ourselves in yet another conflict is just mind-boggling.

Does he think we give a rat's ass about Syria? Does he think we can afford it? Does he think this is the most pressing of matters before the U.S. right now?

He's delusional. Or demented. The good people of Arizona ought to launch a recall , clearly he has lost his mental faculties and is no longer competent.
