John McCain Is Going To Ukraine
Zero Hedge ^ | 12 March 2014 | Tyler Durden

Posted on 03/12/2014 3:41:00 PM PDT by Errant

. Three weeks ago, John Kerry came, saw, and launched a blitz-diplomatic campaign which promptly resulted in, well, Russia annexing Crimea.

Now it is the turn of that other foreign policy titan, neo-con John McCain, to complete Kerry's job and finally launch the GDP-boosting World War III. He may have the chance to do that as soon as Thursday, when he, along with other senators, is slated to travel to Ukraine to "show support for the government there." Or, said otherwise, to show support for the government that is in power thanks to an illegitimate and deadly coup that took place just over two weeks ago, despite the formal signing of a memorandum, endorsed by all Western powers, that stipulated a peaceful transition as well as presidential elections in the coming months. When presented like that, one almost thinks back to the roaring success that was the US endorsement of the Egyptian Muslim Brotherhood regime (where the US too had zero involvement, repeat zero involvement) that also took over following a violent coup. As well as the largely predictable countercoup that overthrew said regime.

I loved him when he was in the Navy, but in the Senate - not so much.

the only question is whether it will rain on McCain in the Ukraine, or not.

Definition of the difference between coup and revolution appears to be an author's attitude towards the events.

Coup bad, revolution good.

So these stupid “look at me” Senators support the Ukraine so much they are going to create an additional security nightmare for them.

The level of stupidity is just amazing.

When Juan McCain supports something you know its bad news.


Pictured: John McAmnesty and US armed, Christian killing Al Qaeda foreign terrorists in Syria.

The same Globalists that support the likes of John McVain and the Al Qaeda overthrow of Syria are the same ones running the overthrow of Ukraine.

“The delegation will be made up of a group of eight senators from both parties. Aside from McCain, those traveling to Ukraine are Sens. Dick Durbin (D-Ill.), John Barrasso (R-Wyo.), John Hoeven (R-N.D.), Ron Johnson (R-Wis.), Chris Murphy (D-Conn.), Jeff Flake (R-Ariz.) and Sheldon Whitehouse (D-R.I.).”

Oh, Goodie! We taxpayers get to pay for yet another junket for another Gang of Eight! Can’t believe Lindsey Graham isn’t in the group. I didn’t think McCain went anywhere without his “special friend.”

When George Soros calls, McCain follows orders. Not a surprise McCain is supporting the Western Ukraine Bandera Nazis. Just like he supported the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt and Al Qaeda in Syria.

Hot damn! Will they be keeping him?

Will Juan McLettuce volunteer to lead them into battle and sacrifice himself on the ramparts?

Why in the world do we care what happens in the Ukraine? The Russians have wanted a Black Sea port and access going back as far as Peter the Great. Let them war upon each other.

Look for the mincing burka carrying Queeg’s valise. This is too good of a globalist photo op to miss.
