John McCain Does Not Support Syrian Resolution

The war hawk in chief John McCain has done an about face and Does Not Support Syrian Resolution as is.

When it comes to war, John McCain can flipflop with the best of them. Just the other day, he was on FOX News saying how we must support Obama's call for a strike against Syria, but now he feels the new resolution doesn't make enough war for him --so he's against it.

Sen. John McCain says he doesn't support the latest Senate resolution to authorize military force against Syria.

McCain is an outspoken advocate of intervention against Syrian President Bashar Assad's regime and wants more than cruise missile strikes and other limited action.

The Arizona Republican threatened earlier this week to vote against a White House draft resolution unless President Barack Obama promised greater support to Syria's rebels. McCain then expressed support after meeting Obama at the White House.

He now opposes a resolution crafted by Democratic Sen. Bob Menendez of New Jersey and Republican Sen. Bob Corker of Tennessee. It puts a 90-day limit on action and says no American troops can be sent into Syria.

Asked if he supported it, McCain said, "In its current form, I do not."

"I need blood, rivers of blood flowing and flowing and flowing!!!!"
