War Drums Sound For Conflict With Syria, Iran

April 26, 2013 by  

As a handful of lawmakers urge American intervention in Syria over alleged usage of chemical weapons by the Bashar Assad regime, the possibility of more Mideast wars is looking likelier by the day.

Senator John McCain (R-Ariz.), based on unsubstantiated reports of chemical weapon use in Syria, called for the United States to “provide weapons to people in the resistance who we trust” as well as other forms of military support for Syrian rebels.

“Our intelligence community does assess, with varying degrees of confidence, that the Syrian regime has used chemical weapons on a small scale in Syria, specifically, the chemical agent sarin,” the White House said in a letter Thursday.

Meanwhile, Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel has riled war hawks in making remarks about another Mideast nation with tense U.S. relations: Iran.

“I don’t know if all of these efforts that we’re applying in dealing with Iran — one being the international economic sanctions — will in fact change their attitude about what we think is their objective, moving toward a nuclear weapon” Hagel told reporters in Southwest Asia. “I don’t know if what we’re doing will shift their thoughts or their approach.”
