This whole Syria thing has spawned an army of armchair foreign policy experts who are not afraid to savage sitting leaders in pursuit of their own rhetorical amusement.
Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., got caught in their crosshairs earlier this week.
Secretary of State John Kerry is getting a taste of their wrath right now.
Online critics have launched a #JohnKerryWarMovies thread in which they float titles for fictional flicks lampooning the former lawmaker’s ongoing efforts to line up enough congressional votes to support President Barack Obama’s planned attack against Bashar al-Assad.
The combative creations include:
