John McCain: Great Britain ‘No Longer a World Power’
NewsBusters ^

Posted on 08/31/2013 5:21:06 PM PDT by chessplayer

Senator John McCain had harsh words for Great Britain Friday following that country’s decision to not participate in a coordinated attack on Syria.

Appearing on NBC’s Tonight Show, McCain said, “I feel badly about the British. They're our dear friends, but they're no longer a world power. It's just a fact of life.”

Honest to God, McCain is a very sick man. I have never seen a guy so hyped up about going to war anywhere and everywhere.

John McCain never was much. He finished near the bottom of his class. His daddy got him in flight school, he crashed almost enough planes to make him a Vietnamese ace.

He was treated kindly by the Viet Cong because his daddy was an Admiral, he came home brainwashed and a sleeper agent.IMO.

John McCain is a globalist piece of feces. If he had been elected in 2008, it would have been MUCH worse for us than even Obama, because an enemy of America (as he is) in the office with a Republican label would have done farrrr more damage than a Democrat.

See, the Republicans would have gone along with McCain's insane plans because... well, he's a REPUBLICAN... and the Democrats would have gone along with his plans because it is what they wanted all along.

McCain is a very VERY dangerous, utterly evil man. Hey, whatever happened to that skin cancer he had?

I respect his service, nevertheless. He was very badly injured when he crashed and didn’t receive proper care while a POW. I disagree with you on this issue. He was not treated well.

I can’t stand him politically, but let’s not denigrate the man’s service to his country, please.

And America’s government is no longer Constitutional.

Things do sometimes change for the better, Juan.

In the Brits case, their government made a choice on what is best for Britain, not what is best for Obama or for foreigners who hate their guts.

Perhaps America’s government leaders will someday return to sanity and go back to representing Americans instead of themselves and foreigners.

Not likely, but patriots can dream too.

We can all respect McCain’s military service, and perhaps even the man he once was.
But that card has been played far too many times.

His service doesn’t give him a lifetime pass to be an arrogant buffoon and he doesn’t deserve perpetual forgiveness for being a colossally bad Senator and terrible representative for the American people.

I disagree. He’s not insane — he’s bought. He’s sold his soul to the Globalist cabal who wants to see America broken down, perhaps broken apart. The people who want a one-world-government need us to have no Constitution — what better way than to break America into separate mini-nations?

I hate to say it, but he's right.

A country which has to consider Argentina to be a formidable opponent is no longer a world power.

Take a look at the once-great Royal Navy after decades of Socialism:

I’ve heard stories that lead me to believe that the man was not liked, to put it mildly, by his fellow POWs. And that they had very good reasons for that dislike. But their code didn’t allow them to talk about it very much.

But even if you are correct, the fact remains that former heroes can turn into traitors.

To wit, Benedict Arnold, the hero of the Battle of Saratoga.

I partly agree. McCain is partly right on the facts. They are less of a world power.

But they are still absolutely a world power. For example, do they, or do they not possess nuclear weapons and the means to deliver them?

Secondly, the timing and tone are important: He slapped at the British. If this had been said at a neutral time, then there would be no overtones.

No, he said this NOW, with the express purpose of slapping at the British and bolstering Obama. That should be evident, and tell you much.
