Obama seeks Syria support from former foe McCain


The statement released by McCain and his fellow Rep. Sen. Graham explains the differences between Obama and the Republicans. While Obama has asked for limited strike (punitive action) against strike, McCain and Graham have demanded the type of intervention that amounts to Regime Change in Syria.

This seems consistent with McCain and Graham’s positions which sought military intervention in Syria since the start of the Syrian conflict.
