BEIRUT, LEBANON (11:30 P.M.) – U.S. Senator John McCain released a statement on Sunday that condemned the reported chemical weapons attack on the East Ghouta town of Douma yesterday.

“President Trump last week signaled to the world that the United States would prematurely withdraw from Syria. Bashar Assad and his Russian and Iranian backers have heard him, and emboldened by American inaction, Assad has reportedly launched another chemical attack against innocent men, women and children, this time in Douma. Initial accounts show dozens of innocent civilians, including children, have been targeted by this vicious bombardment designed to burn and choke the human body and leave victims writhing in unspeakable pain,” McCain began.

The veteran Senator would then encourage U.S. President Donald Trump to carry out an attack against the government of Syrian President Bashar Al-Assad.

“Crimes against humanity have become Assad’s trademarks in his relentless campaign against the people of Syria that has killed more than half a million people and forced 11 million from their homes. President Trump was quick to call out Assad today, along with the Russian and Iranian governments, on Twitter. The question now is whether he will do anything about it. The President responded decisively when Assad used chemical weapons last year. He should do so again, and demonstrate that Assad will pay a price for his war crimes,” McCain stated.

McCain has repeatedly called on both former U.S. President Barack Obama and his successor Donald Trump to take military action in Syria and remove Assad.

Before being captured and singing like a Songbird against his fellow inmates so he could be treated better. He later had his military records sealed for ever so no one could see what a coward he really was.

Not speaking about near having sunk an aircraft carrier.
Hopefully for him, his dad was the boss of US-Navy in the region. A chopper extracted him from the ship before fellow sailors had the time to lynch him…
By playing stupid doing cold starts with his A-4 to “shake” other aircraft, the shockwave just ended with a Zuni rocket to blast, killing just 134 sailors onboard, directly or indirectly through the subsequent fire…

Looks like McCain ignores what ‘reportedly’ means.
“James reportedly killed Bill” could well end up with Bill being alive and in perfect shape.

The US are experts in creating fake and false news as an excuse to invade another country. They have done this in the past and will do it again. This brings to mind the false news that leads to the US attack on Vietnam in the sixties. Remember Saddam Hussein’s WMD….. that led to the invasion of Iraq. The US has being in perpetual warfare since 1945 and they will not stop their bullying tactics. The US are already planning the next stage of conflict, and it will be in the East Asia regions, and lets see what excuses they… Read more »

Awww, isn’t that sweet? That warmongering old piece of c**p wants to “help” Syria like he and others “helped” Iraq. Kill hundreds of thousands of it’s people on invented pretexts and then say he tried to help.

I hope someone shoots him.
