Senator John McCain: “We Are All Ukrainians”
Time ^ | 02-28-2014 | Jay Newton-Small

Posted on 02/28/2014 6:47:47 PM PST by PaulCruz2016

In response to reports of a Russian takeover in parts of Crimea, Arizona Senator John McCain said on Friday, “We are all Ukrainians,” before calling for swift U.S. economic aid to Ukraine, condemnation of Russia at the United Nations, sanctions against Russian officials and the installation of U.S. missiles in the nearby Czech Republic.

Russian President Vladimir Putin believes “this is a chess match reminiscent of the Cold War and we need to realize that and act accordingly,” McCain said, in an exclusive interview with TIME. “That does not mean I envision a conflict with Russia, but we need to take certain measures that would convince Putin that there is a very high cost to actions that he is taking now.”

No, we aren’t John. The old “We are all... “ has gotten so old and stupid that we are all so many things that we are all nothing.

McCain wants to bomb Syria to support the Islamists, “We are all Al Qaeda” (?)

....

we are the world...

Hey John: If this is such a critical matter that it requires U.S. military involvement, then go enlist that daughter of yours to land with the first Army or Marine units.

If he means we are all at the mercy of wolves because of the lack of US leadership, I’d be inclined to agree.

Wasn’t this the guy who told us in 2008, we had nothing to fear from Obama?

He wouldn’t even lay gloves on him in a presidential campaign and he lost.

A loser lecturing us about getting tough on Russia! John McCain is the kind of guy who makes me fall asleep again.

Senator John McCain said on Friday, “We are all Ukrainians”.

Methinks you're just an old, dangerous fool, Senator.

Seeing you schmoozing with Oleh Tyahnybok, the ukrainian nazi leader, made me puke. Svoboda’s openly pro-Nazi politics have not deterred you from addressing a EuroMaidan rally alongside Tyahnybok, nor did it prevent Assistant Secretary of State Victoria Nuland from enjoying a friendly meeting with the sam scumb.g Two weeks later, 15,000 Svoboda members held a torchlight ceremony in the city of Lviv in honor of Stepan Bandera, a World War II-era Nazi collaborator who led the pro-fascist Organization of Ukrainian Nationalists (OUN-B).

Who is advising Mccain?? His desire for numerous military adventures where there’s no threat to us is reckless.

Okay, boy, here you go.

You served our country in what branch of the armed forces?
And what were your service dates?

One who tells me to move to Russia had damned well better be able to put that up.

Waiting on you, you snotty, effete little bitch...

What a waste it is to lose one’s mind. Or not to have a mind is being very wasteful. How true that is.

>> You just picked the wrong person to insult.

How’s that, kitty boy? That sounds vaguely like a threat to me. Is that how you meant it to sound, kitty?

...but no answers, I see. No branch, no service dates. Just another bucket of snot. Doesn’t really cut it on a thinking man’s forum that deals in facts. You’re rather short on facts and reasoning, aren’t you? Makes me wonder how you got this far. Extra-rich grade of snot, I guess.

Are you sure you have time for all this? It’s the end of the month; don’t you need to contact Daddy to make sure he ups the trust fund payment?

Just looking out for you, kitty.
