McCain: Gaddafi's Death Should Worry Putin
PIK ^ | October 21, 2011

Posted on 10/21/2011 8:55:54 PM PDT by Fennie

U.S. Senator John McCain has compared Russia and Libya, saying that Muamar Gaddafi's death should worry the Russian Prime Minister Vladimir Putin, according to Gazeta.ru.

"Dictators in all countries, including Bashar al-Assad and, possibly, Mr. Putin and some Chinese leaders should be worried. I think this is spring, but not only the Arab Spring," McCain said during the BBC's Newsnight show.

There comes a time for introspection and holding one’s tongue.

I advise McCainiac try the first while I try the latter.

The Libyans seemed to have what the OWS protesters want.

Putin and the Politburo of Chin has pretty good grips on power in those countries. He should have warned the dictators of Iran and North Korea.

Is he implying that Russia is on the verge of violent revolution like Egypt, Tunisia and now Libya? Because if he is I don’t even,...I mean what is he thinki—Let me rephrase that. He’s not under—WTF. This guy is supposed to have a strong grasp of world Realpolitik? This guy, I don’t know about this guy anymore.

What is wrong with McCain? Has he had a stroke or something? His recent statements are so off the wall maybe he needs to retire sooner rather than later??

Mcinsane has been this way for at least the last 15 years. I’m just very thankful that he will not on the ticket this time. I can actually vote for Herman Cain, but I will never vote for McCain.

Well I’ve got some news for McInsane, and here it is:

a.) The American people are far from being behind that idiot 0bama, unless it is ‘behind’ him so far as kicking his Communist ass OUT of the White House about a year from now.

b.) The RUSSIAN people ARE behind Vladimir Putin because in the eyes of the majority of Russians, that guy has Russia’s best interest at heart, and he is considered a patriot by many.

McInsane is a blabbering idiot and it appears to be a congenital condition in that family, i.e., his idiot daughter, whose only saving grace is a nice looking rack.

That’s why Putin does all the half naked hunting/F1 car racing/judo pics...he’s so scared of Obama he’s trying to convince the world he’s even half the man our great and mighty Obama is......

Not.

I wanna see Putin tell McCain to STFU. Sad how far we have fallen when it comes to this.

interesting link. thanks.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aJURNC0e6Ek

Forgetting the captions, just watch the film: First, notice this ‘hated dictator’ didn't need to have streets closed off for his safety, didn't need a convoy of armed vehicles and guards, etc - perfectly safe riding through the streets, (looks like prosperous city, people, cars, etc) waving from the sunroof, with no protection.

That back ups what has been written about what Ghadaffi had done in LIbya.

He gave women equality, he was a deadly enemy of al Queada, he reamed out the Saudi Princes and the Palestinians, He had lots of oil and lots of gold and was making his country prosperous...and kept the Jihardists and Muslim Brotherhood at bay.

He had to go - and the spoils will be split up - and the country and it's people will be plunged back into the dark ages.

We live in dark times.

Actually it should worry open-borders elitists. Six million Libyan Arabs did not like Kadafi inviting one million black Africans into their country and electing a new people.

One thing that the MSM has completely missed, or has failed to report, is the fact that it was GWB who had the temerity to go into Iraq, capture Hussein, put him on trial and put him to death, which has set off a chain reaction.

Since then, Osama is dead and Gaddafi is dead.

That Iranian bastard is next.

Bush’s vision of Democracy, while not our type of Democracy, is happening in the Middle East, thanks to Bush, who stood firm, and the 5000 or so troops that gave their lives so that others may live in freedom.

I am puzzled over that that...

Were the people too fearful? Was it propaganda and there were plain clothes guards amongst the people? I don’t know. Crazy times and finding the truth seems difficult at best.
