Story in Colorado.
And I really would like to escape your impressions what is -- what is the American people -- -- -- -- And this incident what's what's your take away it.
Take away is that there are some very sick people in the United States and I wish there was a way that we could.
Have more early detection people who engage an aberration behavior and yet we still have.
Rights of privacy that.
Our constitutional rights it's it's a terrible problem.
Just spread to places like Norway in -- that.
A session and by the way in a country that's very strict gun control laws -- -- the slaughter.
So many people.
I I do I wish I could give you a real good definitive answer is static analyst but.
I guess it's got to do its frankly keeping an eye on things just as much as we can but I can't give you good answer -- And editing -- -- looking for some sort of answer right now and that's -- -- is it your impressions of it before.
And maybe if we don't at all against the political discussions because that's not where we wanna go today -- do -- nasty politically though some thing else about.
Another big story in that Syria you've called.
What's happening and sit in Syria as failure.
Of American leadership and I was wondering if today -- we can do one thing to change that specifically what can we do today.
We could declare age of buffer zone -- safe zone no fly.
Shown up on the Turkish Syrian border allow them to organize and -- and we send them weapons as are coming in from some other.
Arab countries endeavoring this slaughtered and massacred -- -- stopped.
Because of our feckless foreign policy we now have the danger.
Chemical weapons being transported to Hezbollah.
-- aside -- threat to use those chemical weapons the situation has worsened 171000.
At least Syrians have been massacred and United States has stood by doing nothing.
And it's disgraceful and shameful.
And the fact the president and I states won't even speak up for these people much less do anything.
Shows that the president does not believe in American exceptional nation and doesn't want America to lead.
I believe Mitt Romney does.
Where we're getting what some are calling it a threat from Syria today.
The foreign minister -- are saying that yes they do have chemical weapons know they will not use them against our own people however.
If there for it if there's some sort of for intervention.
And that's when those weapons will be used -- -- -- specifically on the people there but that was his threat what do you what do you make of that comment in what.
I had -- change if at all our strategy that you mapped out.
Well I think it is a sign of desperation and I don't think there's any doubt rushers all the questions -- -- situation will be.
And how difficult it will be to repair.
After he does for example they're stretched Christians -- yellow lights.
Also are under threat there are sure -- now foreign fighters -- -- Anderson.
-- al-Qaeda coming into the fight.
All of this because the unconscionable delay of us helping these people.
With what they need meanwhile the Russians are pouring in arms -- range on the ground.
And they're torture centers set up around Syria by -- shots.
We would advise you we went to Kosovo.
We have going to there -- places we helped out in Libya and not enough but helped out in Libya.
But yet this is an abdication.
Of American leadership we are now driven by whether the Russians and the Chinese we'll Vito.
A -- a a resolution in the UN Security Council it's it's not believable.
-- -- thirty seconds here you will share the -- boots on the ground.
And Syria we don't need absolutely not that would be counterproductive they need to play supply weapons -- arms.
And help with the training but actually not American troops on the ground.
In Middle Eastern countries are begging for American leadership which is seen.
Senator McCain thank you for the time today nice to have -- -- as it is and look for to have me back.
Thank you very much -- of.
