WASHINGTON - Arizona Senator John McCain is calling for the United States to lead an international effort to begin air strikes against Syria.

McCain said the US has a moral and strategic obligation to force out Syrian President Bashar Assad and his loyalists.

Last month, McCain urged international cooperation to help suppy the anti-Assad rebels with weapons and other aid.

At the time, he stopped short of endorsing US military involvement.

McCain said Syria's neighbors in the region will intervene militarily, with or without help from the United States.
