Neoconservative swamp monster John McCain pushed long and hard to get the U.S. in a shooting war against the Syrian government and he got it lock, stock, and Tomahawk missiles with President Donald Trump's approval.

McCain expressed his gratitude on CBS's "Face The Nation" on Sunday by accusing Trump of being partly responsible for the chemical attack in Syria.

Trump launched the missile strike based largely on intelligence reports that Syrian President Bashar al-Assad was likely responsible for the chemical attack that left 80 people dead and scores wounded.

"I think [Trump] was partially to blame,” McCain told Face the Nation host John Dickerson regarding an official statement from U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson that Assad's fate should be decided by the Syrian people.

Tillerson told Face The Nation: "We believe that the first priority is the defeat of ISIS. That by defeating ISIS and removing their caliphate from their control, we’ve now eliminated at least — or minimized a particular threat not just to the United States, but to the whole stability in the region."

McCain said Tillerson's comments reflect what he views is a "flawed strategy" for Syria.

Fellow Republican Senate hawk Lindsey Graham also threw his support behind Trump's war posture regarding Syria, as did the mainstream media -- Trump's biggest critic and adversary before and since his election.

Yet all is not smooth sailing for the president, who campaigned on a platform of non-intervention and nation rebuilding at home.

"How much damage has the Syrian attack done to Trump? He’s lost Ann Coulter, who took to Twitter to vent her outrage and retweet lesser-known supporters who felt equally betrayed. He’s lost Justin Raimondo of and the sizable blocs of Ron Paul and Pat Buchanan activists who had flocked to Trump’s ‘America First’ banner. The president has lost his base, or is in grave danger of doing so," noted Daniel McCarthy in The National Interest.
