You are out of the Middle East all we are asking for the USA is to take the lead – Plus Mr. McCain is not wrong on trying to help and stand up to Iran witch one day will attach here in the USA
The reason there has been no military intervention from the United States is because, they don't want to risk having to confront Russia. Russia has military assets and buisness interests in Syria. So, the problem is Russia.
Anderson I am a retired soldier, and as sad as thing look in Syria, this is not our business we need to get out of the middle east, take care of our own people back home, I thing Mr McCain is wrong in wanting to defend the world and forget the needs of Americans. We are hated by Arabs, let them take care of themself.
Dear Mr. Howard, I first would like to thank you for your service, secondly I disagree with you that Arabs hate Americans, unfortunately it is the Arab dictators that planted this idea in the west and Americans mind, let us give them the chance to prove that, let us try to hear their voices not their oppressors. And the support does not have to be through sending personnel, it is only a decision that needs to be taken, and syrians can take care of the rest.
