On the Fact that John McCain Actually Went on Fox News and Advocated that We Arm Syrian Rebels (You Know, Those Nonexistent "Moderates") and Coax Them Into Shooting Down Russian Aircraft (

This is insane in several regards. a) Russia has destroyed more ISIS command and control centers in a month than NATO and the U.S did in an entire year of bombing and so why in the hell would we want to put an end to that (we have been told that ISIS is the enemy, correct?). And b) every time that we DO put weapons into that shithole of a region they almost always end up in the wrong hands with many of 'em aimed point-blank at us. Look, I get it, Russia is a problematic actor and we need to monitor them but what McCain is suggesting here is something that could cause a huge destabilization and I don't know about you but I don't want a WW3 in my lifetime. No siree Bob.
