Nancy Mace Opposes Syrian Intervention

U.S. Senate candidate Nancy Mace has come out against American military intervention in the Syrian Civil War – putting her at odds with incumbent “Republican in Name Only” U.S. Sen. Lindsey Graham.

“I find no compelling national security reason to engage our military in Syria,” Mace said in a statement. “I believe American troops should be fighting against al-Qaeda, not alongside them.”

Mace added that “bolstering an opposition dominated by al-Qaeda will hurt our national interests and only deteriorate the situation in the Middle East.”

“Senator Graham continues to support President Obama’s failed foreign policy. And just yesterday said he would try and ‘sell’ a broader engagement to the people of South Carolina,” she said. “I will stand with the people of South Carolina against Obama’s failed leadership and against military action in Syria.”

South Carolinians aren’t the only ones Graham is attempting to sell. He’s been appealing to other “Republican” members of the U.S. Congress after a series of strategy meetings with Obama over the Labor Day weekend (with some success it would appear).

This website has repeatedly argued against American involvement in this conflict (see hereherehere and here). Even the chairman of Obama’s joint chiefs of staff has expressed grave reservations.

Unfortunately Obama – and “Republican” warmongers like U.S. Senators John McCain and Lindsey Graham – aren’t listening.

So Miss Lindsey’s siding with Al Qaeda. She’s siding with the American people and the principles of our founding fathers.

How is rejecting the call for an objective-less air to ground attack “siding with
Assad”?

I use the term “objective” because every military mission should have one. We
sometimes refer to it as the “in order to” statement as in “…attack target 1 with JDAMs in order to destroy the missile launchers parked there in order to prevent the Syrian Army from launching another missile born chemical attack”.

I haven’t seen a strategic/national level “in order to” statement. If we want to attrit his launchers, we should have done that on day one before he began parking them near schools and hospitals. If we want to attrit his chemical weapons stockpile making it all airborne in an explosion might not be the best way to do it. Taking Assad himself out might only allow his chemical weapons to wind up in even less scrupulous hands…

“I find no compelling national security reason to engage our military in Syria,” I am sure she was fully briefed by the NSC prior to making this pronouncement.

TontoBubbaGoldstein September 3, 2013 at 8:18 pm

OK, TBG will bite. Now, TBG suspects you haven’t been briefed by the NSC either…so all I’m asking for is ANY remotely plausible national security reason for attacking Syria.

Reply
The Colonel September 4, 2013 at 6:33 am

Having been briefed, the Colonel can find no compelling reason either…

I haven’t and she hasn’t either. Therefore my opinion carries as much value as hers. That is the point. BTW, The Colonel hasn’t been briefed either. He thinks he is far up the chain of command but sad to say Colonels are the coffee runners for those of flag rank.

The Colonel September 4, 2013 at 9:56 am

Not this one, the first time I was asked to “get coffee” many years ago I watered it down, the second time I made it so thick you needed a hammer and chisel to drink it. The third time I put a little vinegar in it and when yelled at said “…that’s how my mom said to clean the pot…” There wasn’t a fourth time – which is a good thing cause there would have been a little poo in
it…

Actually, no, I haven’t seen the National Intelligence Estimate produced by the NSC, Brigadier Generals get the coffee in those briefs. I see what we produce over here daily. (we call it the nine o’clock follies)

Our take is less refined and far less “edited” by political constraints and considerations. We have real smart young men and women who can tell you what’s in a crate by the size, shape, color and weight of the crate. They can see things that might concern your wife next time she gets excited while getting a little sun in your backyard. They can tell you what weapon was fired by the crater it produced and can generally tell you from where the weapon was fired from without having seen it fire.

As for the Syria threat, I now know way more than I really want to about Syria’s capabilities.

TontoBubbaGoldstein September 4, 2013 at 9:57 am

TBG ‘s got that.
Your implication, however, seemed to be that there could be a “compelling national security reason” to attack Syria. TBG just wants a possible example of such.

Reply
CNSYD September 4, 2013 at 2:20 pm

“could be”. yes there could be. You and I don’t know and we won’t be asked nor shown one, particularly if it reveals the source.

TontoBubbaGoldstein September 4, 2013 at 3:22 pm

So….Just like TBG, you can’t come with a plausible,”compelling national security reason to attack Syria”, either?

CNSYD September 5, 2013 at 10:22 am

It is like the lyrics of the old song, “playing solitaire with a deck of 51”. Neither of us have all the intel (nor will we ever), so we can’t say for sure.

Maybe so, but does it really matter what she opposes?

This chick has about as much possibility of winning her contest with Graham as I do–and I’m not running. Get real for a minute–If she didn’t have ties to this web site, she’d be lucky to get her picture on the bottom of last page of “The State” under “local politics”. Her opinion on anything from parking fines to Syria is no more important than what you’d hear at a bar.

I graduated from the Citadel – ooh make me a Senator
I set up websites – ooh make me a Senator
I am a woman – ooh make me a Senator
I am a mother – ooh make me a Senator

Graham is just as damn queer as anyone who ever went to the Citadel
Graham is on websites 24/7
Odds are Graham’s cooter is shaved
And even this pussyfied website has called him mother on numerous occasions

I did plus one you, though I think that there is never a good time to send any soldier, young or old, to die for the freedom of others particularly when the others will throw it away and behave in exactly the same manner as the current leadership. See Modern Iraq, Iran, Afganny’s, etc. etc.

Please tell me that you are not implying that had Truman not dropped the A-bombs, Japan would have invaded and conquered the United States.
TBG is , like yourself and Sir Winston, is a believer in “You mess with the bull, you get the horn.’ The problem is it is usually militaries and governments that do the sowing and messing and civilians that get blown and gored*.

My point was that the Japanese reaped what they sowed. Had they realized what bad shape we were in defense wise in 1941 they could have rolled right on over to California. If you are I were faced with the decision of US lives vs Japanese lives how would we decide?

Honestly…?

I just checked your website and …..its content is not looking very refreshingly good either….

Do you not understand where Senator Graham’s “poker chips” are at with this Syria issue..? Maybe you need to get in your car and go down to the closest Kangaroo Gas station and have a look at some fuel being sold at the pumps….!!

If not….then why do you not just go play poker with John McCain…?
