Skip to comments.John McCain: Great Britain ‘No Longer a World Power’
Posted on 08/31/2013 5:21:06 PM PDT by chessplayer
Senator John McCain had harsh words for Great Britain Friday following that countrys decision to not participate in a coordinated attack on Syria.
Appearing on NBCs 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.
Ok. I understand. More mid east war interventions mean more world power!
Also means more kickbacks to corrupt Neo Cons... I bet their bank accounts are hurting right about now!
Term limits would have put this jackass out to pasture long ago.....
And if the Neo-Con’s like McCain keep getting us bogged down in wars, we won’t be world power much longer either.
My 88 year old dad is sickened by McCain. He tired of this lust for wars involving Muslims. He is mostly sickened by all the maiming and deaths of our young troops for no good reasons. Yet here they are, DC idiots want another one. It never ends.
He sends so many checks to wounded soldier groups because seeing their misery upsets him so much.
The scumbag cheered us into Libya as well and then started screaming bloody murder over the Benghazi attack as if he was completely innocent and just wanted answers.
A real Eddie Haskell republican.
Yeah, he and Linda are both Saudi puppets. Has to be something in it for them.
Senator Senile Dementia. He had just enough guile left to corrupt
Senator Ricky Ricardo Rubio. The inmates are running the asylum.
Somebody needs to put the senile old clown in the nutter house.
Exactly. Someone PLEASE send McCain to the glue factory.
No nothing to do with that, I just wouldn’t consider them to be a world power anymore, much like France. The entire West has become a clown car of dysfunctional nations in varying states of decay.
What a moron...Britain hasn’t been a world power for decades...But he knew that...
Now McCain insults the Brits since their gov’t won’t go against the wishes of the majority of the people...
My god can this man become more annoying?”
Even if this is true, it doesn’t need to be said by a prominent US Senator.
His skin cancer?
Too bad it didn’t go far enough.
McCain is a useless breather and feeder. Good men died in VC prisons while that POS survived.
I truly do wonder about God’s reasoning, at times.
depends on how you define “world power.”
they are in the 10 most powerful military forces.
number 5 on this list:
I hate to say it, but he’s right.
Neither is France, but he isn’t going on talk shows and insulting them. Maybe thats because France is licking bammys feet?
Sometimes I wonder if John McCain threw the 2008 election because he was promised the opportunity to do exactly what he is doing right now. Remember, he was photographed in Syria when... like a month ago? What is he doing, setting up the ultimate destruction of Israel?
McCain is not longer relevant. He starting to say crazy things just to get attention.
A quote from the episode of Doctor Who, “Voyage of The Damned.”
Mr. Copper: So Great Britain is part of Europe, and just across the British channel you’ve got Great France and Great Germany?
The Doctor: It’s just France and Germany. Only Britain is Great.
I guess this means Great Britain isn’t go great anymore.
FU John McNuts!
If a certain North Vietnamese SA-2 crew defending Hanoi in October, 1967 had aimed their missile a little better, the world would be a better place today.
Earth to John. Who gives a damn what you think....
Sometimes I love FR.
But, you, McCain, are still a world class a##Hole traitor.
McCain no longer a rational person.
McCain is right there in the same category as zero and biden, embarrassments to the nation!
Perhaps not, but a loyal friend is not to be disrespected.
I’m ashamed Juan McCain is an American.
McCain should face a firing squad.
I Won’t Give McCain a Pass or those that stick up for the POS!
Some reasons why Britain is still a world power:
1. It has nuclear weapons, and the means to deliver them anywhere on the planet;
That alone makes them a world power.
Long thread and may have already been said..
I heard one of the Brit legislators state flat out that O had drawn the line in the sand and it was not Britain’s job to enforce it (paraphrase).
On the hand I stood up and cheered...on the other hand it saddened and embarrassed me.
Benedict Arnold was as war hero too ...
Correct me if I'm wrong, but wasn't he the first one to scream and shout when people started calling out Obama's middle name "Hussein"? He stepped up with a big giant assist to Zero with that one!
You need to take up McCain’s presence on the world stage with the people in Arizona. For some reason they apparently believe he is a real war hero with a lot of moxie. As for me I don’t think so.
It is a national disgrace that the Navy allowed this retard McCain to “graduate” from Annapolis when he really flunked out - only because his father was an Admiral. The damage he did to legitimate Navy airmen, POWs and this nation’s security thereafter is incalculable. He is a traitor, but a cowardly one. At least Benedict Arnold announced his betrayal. McCain betrays us with stealth, secrets and subterfuge. I despise him beyond words. God damn you John McCain. If you have any shred of honor in your twilight years...RESIGN.
He is a meaningless dolt.
McCain needs to grow up - temper tantrums are ugly at his age.
The Brits ARE our friends - they’re just not stupid...
mclame was in the military...so were many others. Because of that, some feel he should get a pass? His “pass” expired many years ago. He is a doddering pile of cr** and should resign immediately.
Then why is Britain continuously called our "strongest ally" in numerous articles by numerous outlets?
Why did 0bammy seek Britain as a formidable ally in his tried-but-failed coalition against Syria?
These NWO windbags are a complete embarrassment.
don't you think that this is just a wee bit childish??
HEY.....WATCH IT THERE
I would agree with John McCain. The once mighty british empire has become a joke, and David Cameron legalizing gay "marriage" there is just the final nail in the coffin. Like much of western Europe, Muslims are taking over and the UK as we know it is dying. The fact they got it right on Syria doesn't change that fact.
you're, at best, PATHETIC!!
Do De-Do De-Do De-Do-Do (whistling..)
I cant stand him politically, but lets not denigrate the mans service to his country, please.
Sorry AB, but many of us no longer feel the obligation to preface every damn comment about this guy with the tired and worn out: “I respect his military service...blah...blah blah...”
F*ck McCain's military service! This A$$hole made law to take way other American’s rights to free speech! Remember McCain-Feingold? He's also helping to destroy this nation with his stand on amnesty!
This POS is helping to destroy our nation! You want to praise his service, you go right ahead. Many of us no longer feel the obligation.
Their nominal GDP is #6 in the world behind the US, China, Japan, Germany, and maybe Brazil. That’s pretty strong.
They are a great world power. They have acted responsibly while France can only think about oil.
The U.S. the only true world power but the UK is in the second tier which is nothing to be ashamed of for a tiny island. I would put them there with China, Japan, Russia and Germany, and the UK has the highest quality military of that bunch.
