Another war in the Middle East?

Sens. Joe Lieberman, I-Conn., Marco Rubio, R-Fla., and John McCain, R-Ariz., unveiled on Wednesday a 10-page, nonbinding resolution "expressing support for peaceful demonstrations and universal freedoms in Syria and condemning the human rights violations by the Assad Regime."

The bipartisan measure calls for the Obama Administration to do more to oppose the brutal crackdown on political protestors in the Middle Eastern nation.

"I know that there are some who are concerned about what will happen if (Syrian President) Bashar al-Assad fails, but there simply cannot be a successor to Bashar al-Assad that is anywhere near as bad as he is," said Lieberman, calling anything to the contrary "strategic and moral nonsense."

These people are crazy.  We are not the cops of the Middle East.
