"The deployment of 250 additional US military forces to Syria is a welcome development, but one that is long overdue and ultimately insufficient," McCain stated. "Another reluctant step down the dangerous road of gradual escalation will not undo the damage in Syria."
McCain accused the US government of being foolish in seeking to work with Russia to negotiate a peaceful end to the Syrian civil war.
"This is the inevitable result of forsaking the lessons of history: that power abhors a vacuum, that wars don’t end because politicians say so, that there are military dimensions to achieving political solutions, and that the perils of indecision and inaction often outweigh the risks of action."
McCain also claimed that unless the United States poured massive military forces into Syria, Syrian refugees would continue to flood into Europe and the Daesh would continue to grow in power.
