The Democracy Project’s next target

Daniel S. writes:

John McCain shows once again that he is one of the most deranged men in American politics. He is calling for the U.S. to arm the Muslim militants in Syria who are fighting to overthrown the Assad regime. These Syrian opposition groups that McCain would have the U.S. fund and arm have used suicide bombings against the regime. Syria’s Christian population rightfully fears a genocide similar to the one faced by their Iraqi counterparts should the regime collapse and the rebels assume power. One need only look at Iraq, Kosovo, Afghanistan, Egypt, and Libya to see where McCain’s deranged interventionism leads. Sadly, I suspect McCain, Joseph Lieberman, and Lindsey Graham will get exactly what they want in Syria, to the misfortune of both the Americans and the Syrian Christians.

But it is America’s destiny to be a force for good in the world! It would go against our genetic make-up as Americans to sit idly by while courageous rebels are risking their lives to free their country from a tyrannical regime.

That is the “reasoning” behind these interventions.
