WASHINGTON -- Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) on Monday knocked the Obama administration for being too passive in its response to Syrian violence and called for U.S.-led airstrikes on President Bashar al-Assad's military forces
"The time has come for a new policy," McCain said during remarks on the Senate floor.
"If we stand on the sidelines, others will try to pick winners, and this will not always be to our liking or in our interest," he said.
"These people are our allies. They want many of the same things we do," McCain said. "The Syrian people deserve to succeed, and shame on us if we fail to help them.”

Forgive me, but do you think McCain has even the slightest influence on American policy? There are people who have questionable ideas, but I wouldn't worry about this one. Do you think Obama is a war-monger? How about Hillary? If they were yelling for war I'd be interested, but this? Who cares?
