McCain Town Hall Erupts With Opposition to Syria Strike
Sen. John McCain has been a vocal supporter of rebel efforts in the Syrian conflict and of a U.S. strike, but he knows all too well the uphill battle he and his colleagues will have to fight to convince the American people that they should support more U.S. intervention in the Middle East.
Yesterday, he decided to hold a town hall on everything from immigration reform to Syria ... but things got extremely heated when the residents of Arizona took aim at the senator's plan.
One resident could be heard shouting, "you don't respect our view!" Another: "why are we not taking care of our people? Eighty-five percent of U.S. citizens do not want this third war!" And still another: "you cannot come into my home and fix it unless I fix it myself. How can America go into someone else's home to fix it?"
McCain listened to the outcries, responding at once by saying simply, "when we ignore events around the world that take place, they sooner or later come home to the doorstep of America..."
