Escape from Paradise – the Promotional Trailer

Senator McCain’s visit to al-Qaeda revolutionaries – an act of treason?

Is U.S. Senator John McCain supporting al-Qaeda?

Drudge report

Even the conservative Drudge Report suggests that the Senator is visiting the wrong people in Syria. The Drudge May 28th headline reads, “War Drums: McCain’s Memorial Day with “Rebels”.

Is McCain is out for more U.S. boots on the ground, and U.S, bodies under the ground? And, if so, for whom?

On April 10, 2013, the BBC stated, “The leader of the al-Nusra Front, a jihadist group fighting in Syria, has pledged allegiance to the leader of al-Qaeda, Ayman al-Zawahiri.”

The al-Nusra Front is one of the leaders in the revolution against the Syrian government—one of the last two non-sectarian governments left in the Middle East. (Webster defines non-sectarian as being “not affiliated with or restricted to a particular religious group.”)

The only other remaining non-sectarian government in the Middle East, at least for now, is Lebanon.

It is worthwhile noting that the government of Iraq under Saddam Hussein was also non-sectarian. Iraq now is a de-facto religious state, controlled by the Shia branch of Islam, as is its controlling neighbor, Iran.

With war profits no longer coming in from the Iraq War, and the war in Afghanistan coming to an end, the U.S. military-industrial complex is desperate for another way—and what candidate is better than Syria?

Now, either through delusion, or at the behest of the U.S. military-industrial complex, Senator John McCain has taken it upon himself to visit Syria to provide support for a war in Syria. More specifically, Senator McCain has visited Syria drum up sponsorship for Syria’s revolutionaries. By so doing, Senator McCain is joining hands with al-Qaeda.

Is Senator McCain’s visit to the Syria’s al-Qaeda led revolutionaries not an act of treason? Were Senator McCain an “ordinary” American citizen, would he not be a possible target for a drone.

According to Assad, Syria’s President, “between 70 and 80 percent of the rebels are Islamic jihadists. Defense consultancy IHS Jane’s, found that nearly half of the members of the rebel groups are jihadists.

At s conference on September 17th, however, McCain angrily rejected IHS Jane’s numbers, saying that “There’s about 70 percent still who are the Free Syrian Army.” He didn’t say where he got this number, but he did acknowledge that there are extremist elements in the rebels.

McCain further denied that al Qaida could take over Syria because “Syria is a moderate nation. Syria has the highest literacy rate of any nation in the Middle East. They are not going to submit to a jihadist or Al Qaida group governing them. They will not!”stated McCain angrily (and without putting forth a shred of evidence.)

Fortunately for Senator McCain, he is doing a great job (paid?) for the lobbyists and is protected by those who seek profits from endless war—at the expense of the American taxpayer.

    McCain is an idiot to do this, as if we don’t have enough domestic problems to deal with at home.
    I wonder who he is lobbying for?
