    McCain sez, Middle East about to errupt, blames Obama for not doing enough, now that's a laugh ! What a sore loser McCain is, he's like some back seat driver on his way to the crazy house. McCain want's the USA now to arm Al Qaeda( our enemies the people who flew the planes on 911) and Hessbulla another terrorist group. What is McCain doing ? The man obviously hasn't a clue or is going for some financial reward. Yes it is pity, it's a crying shame, what has happened to McCain, he must be going insane. Let the Middle East errupt... but for God's sake President Obama do something about the oceans that are being fished out. Once the fishes are gone, thats forever. Priorities. I for one don't give a darn if the Middle East does errupt, I could care less since it's one terrorist group fighting another. There will be terrorists killed and save it will save the USA Billions in War costs and drone strikes. McCain please get some help, your judgement is terrible.

    Who says it's Americas job to stop it. Let Russia , China or someone else spent the hundreds of millions and priceless cost of lives it takes to "do something" for a country full of people that hate you. McCain should just shut up and stop demanding American lives and money it can't afford to spend playing policeman for the world.

    Yeah! And look, the sky is falling ! The sky is falling. And our intelligence sources tell us that they have WMD's hidden out in the desert somewhere...

    And even if it's not our business nor is it our country, we're gonna' get involved.

    The people of Mohammad, must fine regional political resolve in order to fine governess in Syria, A democratic form of government must come from the bottom up and the inside out, The US must have a defined excite plan and regional partners in any regional conflict, the US can lead or follow, but do the regional players understand what side they are on, when the flock of Mohammad is being slaughtered,
