John McCain: Bashar al-Assad should be overthrown even if he gives up his chemical weapons

By MFP  September 10th, 2013

John McCain tells the normal-looking Cuomo brother that he will seek to arm al-Qaeda terrorists against Syria even if Assad turns over his chemical weapons stockpile to Russia as part of a negotiated settlement to avoid U.S. military intervention…

By the way, I still support arming the Free Syrian Army. I strongly support it because I believe a negotiated settlement can only be achieved with the departure of Bashar Assad.

Translation: Defense contractor lobbyists have to pay for their escorts-turned-loyal mistresses’ luxury D.C. apartments for discreet, convenient boning somehow…

Daily Caller: Senators who voted for Syria strike got more defense contractor dough…

The ten Senate Foreign Relations Committee members who voted to attack Syria received 83 percent more campaign contributions from defense contractors than the seven senators who voted against it, according to analysis from Maplight.org.

Examining data from 2007 to 2012, the analysts found that the average senator who voted “yes” on the authorization of the use of military force took $72,850 from defense contractors and other defense industry interests. Senators who voted “no” received just $39,770 on average.

Arizona Republican Sen. John McCain led the pack among those in favor, raking in about $176,000 from defense interests over five years. Illinois Democratic Sen. Dick Durbin garnered $127,000 from the defense industry, followed by Virginia Democratic Sen. Tim Kaine, who picked up a cool $101,000.
