Senator John McCain contunes to slam Obama for his inaction and lack of leadership on Syria.
Last week, President Obama took to the airwaves again and answered questions about Syria. He continued down the same do-nothing mantra and made more excuses as to why the US is unable to respond. Senator John McCain and many others were very critical of Obama's lack of leadership and intervention in Syria.

or the past 14 months, hundreds of thousands of Syrians have protested for freedom. Despite the fact that the Syrian government, led by Bashar al-Assad, has killedthousands of people, many Syrians continue to fight for freedom. Some peacefully protest. Others, such as the Free Syrian Army, which is partially comprised of military defectors, have taken arms against the regime. Nonetheless, a bloody stalemate has ensued, with neither side being able to strike a decisive blow. In addition, although atrocities have been committed by both the opposition as well as the government, the majority of such crimes have been perpetrated by the regime. For example, on May 25, 2012, 108 people were murdered by regime forces in Houla, Syria.

The Obama administration is "politicizing intelligence". They are releasing intelligence that supports their stance on Syria. They have released intelligence reports stating that "Assad is firmly in control of Syria" and that "Assad's inner circle is standing firm"and that "Assad commands afformidable 330,000 army that was built to fight Israel" in an attempt to keep the general public in line with the current White House stance on Syria.
Anyone who knows Syria, knows that eighty percent of Assad's army is composed of Sunni footsoldiers waiting for any opportunity to defect, over 100,000 soldiers have alredy defected, and nearly every part of Syria with the exception of small parts of Aleppo and Damascus are out of his control. Over 90% of Syria is no longer under Assad's control, and the most important central parts of Aleppo and Damascus have already had large protests and are boiling with pain. Assad's rule is coming to an end, the question is just hw much pain and suffering is the world willing to tolerate.

“After a year of bloodshed, the crisis in Syria has reached a decisive moment.
“It is estimated that more than 7,500 lives have been lost. The United Nations has declared that Syrian security forces are guilty of crimes against humanity, including the indiscriminate shelling of civilians, the execution of defectors, and the widespread torture of prisoners. Bashar Al-Assad is now doing to Homs what his father did to Hama. Aerial photographs procured by Human Rights Watch show a city that has been laid to waste by Assad’s tanks and artillery. A British photographer who was wounded and evacuated from the city described it as ‘a medieval siege and slaughter.’ The kinds of mass atrocities that NATO intervened in Libya to prevent in Benghazi are now a reality in Homs. Indeed, Syria today is the scene of some of the worst state-sponsored violence since Milosevic’s war crimes in the Balkans, or Russia’s annihilation of the Chechen city of Grozny.

Fifty-six leading conservative foreign-policy experts wrote an open letter Friday to U.S. President Barack Obama calling on him to directly aid the Syrian opposition and protect the lives of Syrian civilians.
"For eleven months now, the Syrian people have been dying on a daily basis at the hands of their government as they seek to topple the brutal regime of Bashar al-Assad. As the recent events in the city of Homs-in which hundreds of Syrians have been killed in a matter of days-have shown, Assad will stop at nothing to maintain his grip on power," wrote the experts.
