McCain defends Syrian rebels’ use of ‘Allahu Akbar,’ blasts Fox News host

angry_mccain-550x366John “McRINO” McCain, the alleged Republican senator from Arizona, scolded Fox News’ Brian Kilmeade after he questioned the use of the phrase “Allahu Akbar” after what the Fox News host said “looks like a fighter jet being shot out of the sky.”

“I have a problem helping those people screaming that after a hit,” Kilmeade said.

But that didn’t sit well with McCain, who scolded Kilmeade.

The Huffington Post reported:

“Would you have a problem with an American person saying ‘Thank God? Thank God?'” McCain said. “That’s what they’re saying. Come on! Of course they’re Muslims, but they’re moderates and I guarantee you they are moderates.”

McCain said on NBC’s “Today” show he would support President Barack Obama’s request for action, but didn’t agree with the president that any military force should “be designed to be limited in duration and scope.” McCain said he’s hoping for resolution of intervention that includes authority to degrade Syria’s air defenses.

Personally, I’m just not buying McCain’s “guarantees.”

McCain, along with his sidekick Lindsey Graham, want the U.S. embroiled in another Middle East war.
