al-Qaeda Goal: Western State of their own
GOP Goal: Prove Obama Wrong and Weak
Very good rundown here from MSNBC with Luke Russert (9-minute segment):
Senators like Graham (R-SC) and not necessarily McCain, per se (who knows war very up close and personal), want more war, whether in Iraq, nearby Syria or next door in Iran. They will not be content until they show and tell "see, only we can keep America safe," but I wonder? Are Syria and Iran a threat to us, really!!
Stay tuned - this is just heating up.
