“These strikes near the city of Homs is not under control of ISIS. So already we are seeing the true intentions of Vladimir Putin, which is to maintain a strong position in Syria, his foothold in the Middle East, and his propping up of Bashar al-Assad,” said the US Senator.
McCain also said that Bashar al-Assad had killed at least 250,000 of his own citizens through the horrible process of barrel bombing.
“Russia and Iran don't have any interest in resolving the Syrian conflict. They seek only to keep the murderous Assad regime in power,” McCain said.
According to McCain, it is time President Obama woke up to the realities in the world and reasserted American leadership.
McCain went on to say that the US should not send its troops to Iran or Syria, but rather develop its own policy.
“We should be launching our aircraft and saying, 'We're going to fly anyplace anytime and anyhow we want to — and don't get in the way’”, John McCain said.
“Vladimir Putin, who is a thug and a bully, can only understand a steadfast and strong American policy that brings America's strength back to bear. We are still the strongest nation in the world. Now it's time for us to act like it,” McCain concluded.
