John McCain's 11-Step Plan To Impose "Costs" On Russia

Tyler Durden's picture


U.S. Senator John McCain (R-AZ) released the following statement on the need to provide greater support to Ukraine and impose additional costs on Russia in the wake of the Russian government’s annexation of Crimea today... clearly seeking the diplomatic way out...


Statement by Senator John McCain on Ukraine

“In response to the Russian government’s annexation of Crimea today, the United States should provide greater support to Ukraine and impose additional costs on Russia, including:

  1. “Pass the bipartisan legislation that the Senate Foreign Relations Committee approved last week, which authorizes $1 billion in loan guarantees for Ukraine, democracy and security assistance for Ukraine, targeted sanctions against Russian officials, and steps to strengthen the IMF’s ability to be a stronger partner to Ukraine.
  2. “Work with NATO to rush plane-loads of food and other humanitarian assistance to Ukrainian soldiers and civilians in eastern Ukraine.
  3. “Work through the OSCE to approve and deploy a large civilian monitoring mission in eastern Ukraine that could help set the record straight about alleged threats to ethnic Russians and reveal Putin's effort to inflame the situation as a pretext for further aggression.
  4. “Rush the modest military assistance to the Ukrainian government that its leaders have requested, including some small arms and ammunition, as well as significant non-lethal assistance, such as protective equipment, spare parts, fuel, and sharing of intelligence.
  5. “Work with NATO and other partners to support the Ukrainian government in designing and resourcing a long-term assistance program to rebuild and reform Ukraine’s military.
  6. “Enhance NATO's force presence, security cooperation, and military exercises, especially in Central and Eastern Europe and the Baltic countries.
  7. “Work within NATO to take all necessary steps that can prepare for the expansion of the alliance to include countries such as Georgia and Montenegro as soon as possible.
  8. “Expand significantly the U.S. and E.U. targeted sanctions against the most corrupt Russian government officials, companies, and financial institutions.
  9. “Use the Magnitsky Act to sanction additional Russian officials for their gross violations of human rights.
  10. “Take more assertive steps to isolate Russia internationally, including by repeated votes in the U.N. Security Council and a G-7 boycott of the G-8 Summit in Sochi.
  11. “Take steps to permit and enhance the exportation of U.S. oil and natural gas, especially to NATO allies and other European partners, in order to decrease Europe's reliance on Russian supplies of energy.

The United States and our allies and partners must remain committed to supporting the sovereignty, independence, and territorial integrity of Ukraine, which includes Crimea.”


Seems like lots of spending, not much talking, and a whole lot that will set in place retaliation...

The people that vote for him think Eisenhower is President and the U.S. still produces something besides parasitic M.B.A.'s.

They watch the Nightly News and pore over Reader's Digest, and believe Russia is still the threat and not their own government.

Most will die well fed, over-medicated, and blissfully ignorant.

McCain is just another senile old cold-war era fossil that should have been put out to pasture a long time ago.  Look at it this way, if McCain had been elected the US would probably be at war with China, Russia, Syria, Israel and Saudi Arabia all at the same time.

Were someone to inquire about my religious beliefs, I would say, in absolute sincerity, "Christian."

Then I see a picture of John McCain.

Christians struggle a lot because of people like him.

So true:

I remember when I first attempted to caucus for Ron Paul back in 2008.  When the voting district was nominating reps for the state convention, there were a series of old guys (Vietnam, Korean, possibly WWII) that all stood up in succession and recommended John McCain because he "had experience and would stand up to the world's tyrants and dictators".  I was one of the few guys without gray hair that day and was not voted for. 

So yeah, I can independently validate your claim from first-hand experience.


I moved to a much younger demongraphic area (within the city limits, not a first-ring suburb); and I attempted to Caucus for Ron Paul again in 2012.  Inspired and enlightened minds gave those who supported Ron Paul a clean sweep.  It was entertaining.  There were some dissappointed elderly gentlemen in the room that day (who's flavor of the day was Rick Santorem).

How many sailors did McCain's old man F over?  Well we know about his involvement with the USS Liberty.   We also will never know if McCain was partially responsible for the horrible fire on the USS Forrestal aka Wet Start Johnny.

What about his grandpa Admiral?  Who did he F over? What sailors got sold out by grandpa? 

It seems like the whole MCCain klan have been stooges for the NWO and the dual citizens since at least his old man.

Yes.  The first step should be to target corrupt MFs in the U.S.  That would certainly boost our standing in the Ukraine and everywhere else.

They want One World Order, by means of destroying ALL Nation States (good start so far, so any real rebuilding in Iraq? Libya? Afghan? nope) with their power base the US being LAST, so they drop it last. This sets the stage for their reptilian leader to return....kidding but maybe not. It's in the Bible man.

Go to Phoenix/Scottsdale and you will see.  The largest and huge block of factories = General Dynamics owned by the Crown family aka Lester Crown. AIPAC and dual citizens.   Who was Obama's biggest and earliest financial supporter in Chicago?  You got it...Lester.   So your choices in 2008 Election were owned by..... 

LBJ had the green light on any contract for the Pentagon when he was in the Senate and VP.  LBJ got a piece of everything including stock.   Lady Bird supposedly was a major shareholder in who got the M-16 contract.  Just before JFK gets whacked - General Dynamics gets a multi billion dollar contract which was a huge scandal.  Their largest factory was in Fort Worth and it was for the F-111.  A really expensive plane in need of a war.

This is the face of MIC.

Too late John.  Put down the Pokerstars app on your phone and pay attention.  Like Obummy, you're too old and slow.  Putin showed you your ass again.

More importantly, the people of the region voted - I think that is called Democracy..  Now STFU.

McInsane should be in Elder Care, along with his nutty, hawkish pals:  Sr. Bush, Cheney, Brezinski (misspelled) and Kissinger. 

All "nuttier than squirrel poo."

They should play their little board games, play golf and give candy & chocolates to their great-grand kids, and tell them 'stories' of the glory days.

Everything that someone needs to know about John McCain can be learned by reading this - He's one of the most immoral, despicable people in American history. About the only thing he's good at is crashing perfectly fine airplanes. Oh yeah, and leaving his wife if she is disfigured in an automobile accident.

The operative part of this is the loosening of the laws against exporting crude in the name of "helping" Europe break from buying Russian energy.


This is just an excuse to remove the law preventing the export of American crude...

My fellow Americans,

The world has change with the Russian aggression in Ukraine. Back on Sep 1, 1944, very few people understood that it was the beginning of the WWII. Now, the situation is not much different. Then the British empire has betrayed Poland and now the same takes place in Ukraine. Russia will not stop there. The next will be China taking actions against major US geopolitical and military interests.

Under leadership of Zionist Banking Mafia and their agents Obama and the Congress, the USA are looking like a POS. It is an utterly disgusting situation.

Now, the USA is rapidly losing its superpower status. Consequently, the US$ will lose the privilege to be a world reserve currency. This will lead to an economic and political collapse in the USA.
