McCain Says Limited
U.S. Strikes on Militants in
Iraq Are Not Enough
“The stated purpose — stated by the president — is to save American lives, not to stop ISIS, not to change the battlefield, not to stop ISIS from moving equipment farther into Syria to destroy the Free Syrian Army. ISIS has erased the boundary between Iraq and Syria,” Mr. McCain said. Yet the president, he said, “has failed so far to even mention Syria.”
A lot of people are failing to mention Syria when waffling on about ISIS. But if the Free Syrian Army had received the arms it needed to defend itself against the Assad régime last year, as McCain was one of the few to argue at the time, there would be no ISIS now.
