Although I am a right wing conservative, generally voting Republican, I am troubled by Senator John McCain’s push to involve the United States in another Muslim revolution, assisting the Syrian rebels. The rebels will likely fall in line with the Muslim Brotherhood and Al Queda. What more can be said? Why must we be involved in another conflict? This makes absolutely no sense to even a casual observer of current events and history. 

I am a former Marine and a combat veteran of the Vietnam War. When will we learn that we are not the global police and we need to keep our military out of unnecessary foreign conflicts? From the way things are going, some people in Washington want to keep us in the Mideast forever. Once we get involved in Syria, it becomes another quagmire. The politicians create wars and the troops get to do the dirty work and bleed.
