McCain: “Now, at the end of the military operation in Libya, the leadership of our country could pay more attention to the issue of organizing a practical military operation to protect civilians in Syria. Assad should not think that he will not have to answer for the massacres of civilians in Syria. Gaddafi thought so too, and it cost him what happened to him. The rulers of Iran should also take note of what happened with Gaddafi ... "Some American leaders have already been different in making such statements to foreign leaders, but McCain surpassed many of them. Just think: a high-ranking American politician who could, and probably still could become the president of the United States, is scattered by direct threats of physical elimination to the leaders of entire countries. Even Hitler did not do this when he was not in power. It is difficult to imagine how this man would lead or lead himself if he became president. For all the terribleness of his words, uttered with full confidence that if they come true, no one will be held responsible for the possible assassinations of the Syrian leader and his entourage, it is not clear what exactly McCain meant - purely American or joint NATO military intervention in Syria , organized in the image and likeness of the current intervention in Libya.
Recall that the situation in Syria is presented by the Western media from the point of view that the “totalitarian” regime of Syria, headed by the “tyrant” Assad, has been conducting repressions against its people and “democratic” forces that are in peaceful opposition to the authorities for more than half a year.
Nevertheless, the official position of the US presidential administration is that military intervention in Syria is inappropriate and can lead to the emergence of "chaos in the region." US Secretary of State Clinton also stated that "the United States strongly supports the possibility of Assad’s resignation, and warmly supports the Syrian opposition conducting peaceful protests."
And again, McCain. This time, the senator threatened Iranian leaders with violence for the allegedly failed attempt to assassinate the ambassador of Saudi Arabia to the United States, and also reminded patriotic Americans that the “threat” coming from Iran, which “kills our soldiers in Iraq and Afghanistan, supports extremist groups around the world, ”is real and continues to grow. McCain constantly insists that Iran is financing international terrorists and trying to acquire nuclear weapons, thereby, "trampling the dignity of his people." In response to such attacks, Tehran said that supporting Iran’s existing regime in Syria is to act as a mediator in resolving the conflict between the Syrian leadership and the opposition and to start an open national dialogue in that country. Tehran also categorically rejects accusations by the Americans in preparing to eliminate the ambassador of Saudi Arabia, insisting on the possibility of considering this incident only if there is “hard evidence”.
In some of his speeches, McCain even tries to romanticize the theme of Middle Eastern revolts, to put it poeticly, almost in the spirit of Che Guevarra, something like this: "Iranian tyrants stole the Arab spring from their people." Or: “No problem unites our great American people so much as the need to protect our foreign friends and allies of democracy, and therefore our interests from the threat from anti-human regimes. No one and nothing can shake our resolve in this matter, ”says the patriotic senator. McCain likes to say that he traveled a lot around the world, in particular, in the Middle East and North Africa region and met there with young democratic activists, business leaders, and heads of local states and almost all of them warmly support the United States, saying that our leadership in the region should only increase, not decrease. ”
An amazing person and a great patriot of his country, this Senator McCain! What beautiful and true words! It is especially funny if among these "heads of local states" were Saddam hanged and Gaddafi lynched.
