“We discussed… about increasing the capabilities and that means providing not only weapons, but the kind of weapons they need, which are anti-armor and anti-air. AK-47s don’t do very well against tanks,” McCain says.
“So, we discussed that. And that would be a course of action that the President would seriously consider.”
Senator McCain also says he doesn’t want to wait to take action until the United Nations weighs in with its report on the alleged chemical attacks.
He says the credibility of the United States is on the line and “no further proof” is needed.
