John McCain's Wall Street-Funded "Battflefield Earth"

Perhaps the 77 year-old republican senator should stick to online poker. Because if the war hawk was in charge of US foreign policy, World War III would be a distant memory. Courtesy of The Burning Platform, the chart below lists of countries where John McCain has not called for military intervention. It is, in a word, large.

Yet one look at the top donors throughout McCain's career shows something curious: not the Military Industrial Complex but Wall Street. Almost as if it is not the Raytheons and Lockheed-Martins of the world that will benefit from the Syrian war, but Citi, BofA, JPM, Morgan Stanley and of course, Goldman.
