Syria strikes cannot be ‘merely cosmetic’ say McCain, Graham

McCain and Graham: “The purpose of military action in Syria should not be to help the President  save face,” the senators said in a joint statement Friday. “It should not be  merely cosmetic. Instead, the goal of military action should be to shift the  balance of power on the battlefield against Assad and his forces.”
