John McCain Is Going To Ukraine

Tyler Durden's picture


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.

The Hill explains:

The meeting comes ahead of a planned referendum in Crimea on Sunday to secede from Ukraine and join Russia — something the U.S. has said would violate the country’s constitution.


McCain's office said the group would be meeting with members of the interim government and other stakeholders Thursday through Sunday.


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.).


McCain and Murphy also visited the country in December as protests flared in Ukraine. In February, President Viktor Yanukovych fled the country and Russian troops invaded the Crimea peninsula.

Curious for more? Don't be. Not even McCain's office knows much:

McCain’s office said it did not have specifics on the agenda when asked which parts of the country the delegation would be visiting.

It is of course possible the McCain simply doesn't know where Ukraine is to begin with, but all that does matter is to show support for the US military industrial complex, and to show solidarity with US allies in Europe who after last year's botched attempt to get Qatar nat gas, will get some resource self reliance damn it, even if it means killing millions of innocent Ukrainians on both sides of the soon to be east-west split border.

And just in case McCain isn't senile enough to provoke the start of another world war, moments ago the Senate Foreign Relations Committee did its best to further antagonize Russia when it approved legislation granting aid to Ukraine and authorizing sanctions on Russia in a 14-3 vote. Four Republicans voted for the bill despite International Monetary Reform provisions opposed by some conservatives. Sen. Bob Corker (R-Tenn.), the panel's ranking member, and Sens. John McCain (R-Ariz.), Jeff Flake (R-Ariz.) and Ron Johnson (R-Wis.) joined the panel's Democrats in backing the bill.  “I believe we are at a defining moment right now,” said Corker, who negotiated the final draft. “Our friends and allies in the region are watching.”

Sadly, like everything else in Congress, this vote too was just for show, especially since it would involve actual work to enact it into law:

It will be difficult, however, for Congress to complete its work on the bill before lawmakers leave for a recess on Friday.


Legislation passed by the House does not include the IMF provisions, and the pace of action in the Senate will be slowed if conservatives, as expected, refuse to agree to move the bill forward by unanimous consent.


That means there would be no action by Congress on aid to Ukraine before Sunday, when a referendum in Crimea will be held on whether that region should divorce Ukraine for Russia.

By then Crimea will be officially a part of Russia, at which point our best wishes to Congress in legislating away just how Putin should promptly hand over the keys to what he quickly annexed without making more than a couple public statements and in the process once again made the US foreign policy wizards look like the proverbial pigeon playing chess.

I hear that Malaysia Airlines is going to need a few volunteers to try to help re-create the flightpath of MH370. Since John 'Songbird' McCain is a jet pilot, it is only fitting that he and the ENTIRE DELEGATION help in this international humanitarian aid effort to solve this mystery. Should they fail, and make it to Bejing, the only request I have is that the Chinese revoke their passports.

If they were smart imperialists they would position assests in the Med (no closer) to make a show of standing up to Putin.  If Putin moves on Ukraine then send the assets to Syria and take it.  Then they would have the pipeline they seem to want.  Ukraine can be bypassed so it isn't crucial like Syria, no? 

Of course there may not be a Europe to send the gas to if Putin does not stop at Ukraine.  What would he possibly trip on before reaching Germany?

One US destroyer is more than enough.

"They need to work on the propaganda too."
That would be the Russians.

Again, I respect the right to "Kiev Rus" on the part of Mother Russia here...but there are protocols involved. Any appraisal of "Counter-attack Paranoia" should best be done by taking into account at least the idea of these protocols...let alone that that they do in fact exist. (I can give a VERY long list here...none of which have been articulated by anyone as of yet--interestingly-I might add...but one is for example "proportionality." Another not wearing could be labelled a terrorist and Russia could be labelled a State Sponsor of terrorism.) I'm sure the West is well proviso'ed for responding "via bureau-bot" as in theory at least everything so far being done relative to Ukraine is covered under the USA Patriot Act.

Just "keepin' it real" as they say.

World-wide revolution is the idea the useful idiots cling upon since over 200 years. From the 1953 California State Senate Report:

"Communism is synonymous with world revolution and seeks the destruction of all nations, the abolition of patriotism, religion, marriage, family, private property and all political and civil liberties, concerned with the establishment of a worldwide dictatorship of the so called proletariat, which is, in fact, an autocratic self-constituted dictatorship by a small group of self-perpetuating revolutionaries."

All Russia has to do is resume atmospheric testing of nuclear weapons and the Euros will quickly fold with their sanctions.
Or how about a nuclear detonation on a Volcano in Kamchatka, or maybe two or three volcanoes, the Russians have 80 active volcanoes there. All that plume and dust goes east and blocks the sun as it sits up in the atmosphere, can do a lot of hurt to the whole world. IF Russia is to feel pain the whole world will feel it also. And the cooooold weather that will come where will the EUROS get oil and gas for severe winters?
The Euros and USA went in Russia's back yard with a stick looking for trouble poking the sleeping bear. Be careful with these dumb games, Russia is not Libya. Russia has been playing very nice but USA broke its promises of not extending Nato to Baltic republics and Eastern Europe. Stop poking the Bear or there will be a lot of hurt to go around. These politicians are imbeciles playing with the fate of the world, leave well enough alone you fools. With all that volcano dust up in the atmosphere for months you can say goodbye to any air traffic and McCains airplane neonazi dual citizen funded diplomacy. How will USA fly out of Afghanistan then, how will all the big shots feel like when they cant fly around to Kiev and hand out their cookies.

RE: familial ties (NEPOTISM):

One night in 1957, during his junior year at the U.S. Naval Academy, John Sidney McCain III found himself in trouble, an incident that destined him for yet another tense discussion with his frustrated father. While on liberty, he and a couple of classmates had gotten into an argument at a Washington park with a group of guys from nearby Georgetown University who'd tried crashing an impromptu party that McCain and his friends were having with a few girls. An exchange of insults escalated to pugnacious challenges, then shoves, with McCain in the center of the confrontation. One participant remembers the dispute as bloodless, a simple case of testosterone briefly running amok among rival alpha males.

But a witness had called authorities. Hearing that some of the young men appeared to be in the distinctive dress blues of midshipmen, the authorities notified the Navy's Shore Patrol, whose duties included rounding up midshipmen misbehaving away from campus. Detaining McCain and his buddies, the Shore Patrol contacted McCain's father, a naval officer who, living in Washington with McCain's mother, was rousted from bed to pick up his son and at least one other midshipman involved in the incident.

Arriving in uniform, with his trademark cigar in his mouth, Jack McCain came to get the boys and drove home. Midshipman Walt Ryan sat sheepishly in the back seat, staring at silent father and son for a few moments. "It was 2 in the morning or so, and it seemed like John's father had been sleeping before it happened," he said. "He got to the point pretty quickly after we got moving."

"Gentlemen, this will not happen again," Capt. McCain said.

"Yes, sir," his son responded.

"Captain McCain was upset, but he didn't go on talking about it very long," Ryan remembers. "He wanted to get home. He just said, 'No more of that.' The important thing was that we not jeopardize anything for ourselves."


Me. Me. Me. Mine. Mine. Mine.

As Johnny-boi sits in the  backseat of Daddy's car, back in '57, sucking his man-child thumb, his Daddy bails him out (along with his friends, who are, naturally, 'important to him', according to his Mommy) once again, for being a snot-nosed little self-important PRICK. Daddy, of course, may not be entirely to blame (of COURSE he is! He was supposed to be the MAN, but his WIFE told him how to raise the boi, didn't she? DIDN'T SHE?).

Did I miss anything here?

I disagree vehemently.

He should be arrested, brought up on charges, held without bail, tried for his high crimes and misdemeanors, found guilty on all counts...

And, THEN, some Russan soldier (along with a whole lot of American ones) should be trotted out and ORDERED to shoot this motherfucker until his life is terminated.

He should be allowed to fully experience the hell that he is making for humanity, and be made to see that he is gulty on all counts. Sweating bullets in his cell, as his big black roommate sexually abuses him repeatedly, he should begin the experience that he has earned by his actions on this Earth; and the reward that he desires. As he stands in the cold dark sunrise of his last minutes on Earth, awaiting the firing squad, naked, and unrepentant, he MIGHT realize the error of his ways. Of course, it will be too late, as the bullets rip in to his body, rending it to lifelessness.


SEE? Do you understand why I disagree with you? Let me tell you why.

Too many 'X's in your handle... I disagree with the letter 'X' being used... It reminds me of 'Racer X'. Rex, Speed's older brother, never told him about the fact that he was Rex's younger brother (at least, as far as I saw). It's like he deliberately tried to hide his name by using the letter 'X' when he raced internationally. Pops, Trixie, and Chim-Chim never knew either. I  mean, the plans fo the Mach 5 were engraved in the frigging WINDSHIELD, but 'X's identity was always some 'big secret' or something. HELL, TRIXIE always liked him (from a distance), so maybe Rex (Racer X) was trying to protect Speed from a weird 'love triangle' where she would do both brothers at once, or something... I went through a lot of trauma in my childhood, but THIS MYSTERY still haunts me. was Trixie a little slut, who always wanted to try double penetration? Was Rex's dick actually SMALLER than Speed's? Was there some 'childhood jealousy' involved? Did Trixie like Speed's moves better, or Rex's, on the 'race course'?

On the other hand, when illustrating cadavers, the classic use of the 'X' on the eyes is quite humorous (to indicate the lifeless state of the deceased, in that the person will see no more).

I guess 'X's are O.K.

McStain is a war-mongering Zionist Piece of Shit.  When he dies (which I hope will be soon, and with great pain and suffering), I hope to attend his burial and sling a turd as his body gets lowered.  He will sleep eternally with a piece of shit (sadly, it won't be steaming) with him.  I plan to do this to all the zionist plutocrats and their enablers if I have the strength (financial will mostly).  I honestly don't mind forfeiting a bit of class for the satisfaction.   If anyone wants to join and perhaps record it and put it on youtube to really put a stamp on his legacy (i.e. forever be known as the man buried with shit), then let me know, I'll gladly pay for any essential expenses (within reason!).  Fuck the Talmud Tribes and their Zionist enablers (politicians like Cameron, Blair, McStain, Obama, and oh, the House of Saud - the biggest Zionists!)

Not to discredit ZH but you're spending way too much time on him.

We already knew he was "insane" and unfortunately is in good company with a full House and Senate, Executive and Judicial... So it really doesn't do much good singling him out at this point whether his statements were genuine on Sunday MSNBC or simply "misdirection".

If the American public can continue to get a steady diet of war drums like this and still choose to ignore the "warnings" I give it better than a 60% chance of happening as another nuke going off somewhere in the U.S. or within one of our NATO bros' countries in which instead of Assad they will blame it on (Putin or both) the next time.

Mr. McCain was captured in Vietnam.

And spent 2-3 years there not even in jail, but in a pit with shit.

Any person would go crazy after that, so there is nothing special about his condition

I just wanted to point out that Putin knows who and what McCain is

McCain is just a poor guy who lost his mind in Vietnam

same can be said about Zbigniew Brzezinski and many other people in power today who have their wounds in the past of the WW2

They patalogically hate everything soviet and everything russian

Those are dangerous people because they can not escape the cold war mentality and they are leading us to WW3

He's songbird McCain. Look it up.

The north Vietnamese knew he was an admiral's son. Treated him well. He gave up US routes over n Vietnam and many more airmen got shot down after he was captured. He even recorded radio spots selling out the Americans. It was played on the radio for years in North Vietnam.

Anytime anyone asks about he gets pissed off and starts screaming at people, including widows of airmen shot down.

Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) said it was “moving” to meet with rebel groups battling Syrian dictator Bashar Assad during the senator’s surprise trip to the country earlier this week.
“It was a very moving experience to meet these fighters who have been struggling now for over two years,” McCain said on CNN’s “Anderson Cooper 360” on Wednesday night. “And they’re very aware of the battlefield situation and they’re very disturbed about the dramatic influx of Hezbollah fighters, more Iranians, and of course, stepped-up activities of Bashar Assad.”
