Mitt Romney: arm the Syrian rebels
Republican presidential candidate is to call for an escalation of the conflict in Syria in a major foreign policy address
The Republican presidential candidate has made several attempts at establishing his credentials to be commander-in-chief but those speeches made little impact. Against the background of his win over Obama in last week’s debate, the Romney campaign team is hoping this speech will be better received.
The speech is aimed at countering critics who say he has not had much to say so far about foreign policy and given little indication of the lines he would pursue as president.
The guy is an idiot. There is only one motive for this idea… the American arms industry needs to manufacture arms; and at the moment, they don’t have a war going on, just withdrawals.
Romney doesn’t give a shit about the Syrians, but he has to look after his moneyed cronies.
