When McCain heard that the Russians had invaded Georgia, McCain dusted his 1960’s Vietnam uniform and was ready to declare war on Russia, until one of his aides clarified that the Georgia invaded was the small republic of Georgia in southwest Asia, Caucasus region.
Now McCain, looking to score some cheap political points, is beating the drums of war, saying things like Russia wants to “revive the old empire” and other scare tactics from cold war era. McCain is still stuck in the 20th century and all he knows is the old Soviet era.
But there is a small little fact that McShame forgot in his deteriorating and senile mind. All this crisis was GEORGIA’S FAULT! Georgia is our ally and we need to defend and stand by our allies, but stupidity has no excuse. President Saakashvili made the big tactical error of invading South Ossetia knowing that Russia wouldn’t like it and would respond. I don’t know what that guy was thinking. Did Saakashvili really believe that the U.S. and the West would bomb Russia and start WWIII because of him?
It is no surprise that the only response from the U.S. is condemning Russia’s actions as disproportionate response. First we do not have arguments to go against Russia on this and second thanks to the damage that McCain’s friend, George Bush, has done to our standing and reputation, we almost have no leverage anymore.
This is another example why McCain is unfit to be commander on chief. Can you imagine a president McCain, that all he does in an international crisis is beat the drums of war and start threatening everybody with violence. But remember that McSame is Bush third term so, that should not be a surprised.
