Map: All the Countries John McCain Has Wanted to Attack

—By Tim Murphy and Tasneem Raja | Mother Jones | Friday, Sep. 6, 2013

Syria, Iraq, Russia, North Korea, and nine other nations the Arizona senator has been eager to bomb, invade, or destabilize.

Even before he was caught playing poker on his iPhone at a Senate hearing on Wednesday, Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) had already sent a message: Anything less than an extensive aerial assault on the Syrian regime by American forces would be an unacceptable approach to the conflict in the Middle East. This was hardly surprising. Over the last two decades, McCain has rarely missed an opportunity to call for the escalation of an international conflict. Since the mid-1990s, he's pushed for regime change in more than a half-dozen countries—occasionally with disastrous consequences.

Here's a quick review of McCain's eagerness for military action and foreign entanglements.

Don't forget POTUS

Senator McCain has no power over deploying troops or setting foreign policy. Legally Senators are only responsible for oversight & appropriation. All his visits to the Middle East have no force of law or policy unless Obama sent him to convey a message. Obama could easily speak out and remind rogue Senators not to set de facto policy. But he won't because they're not rogue! Obama wants war too.

What about the Western Hemisphere?

Certainly Senator McKill (R-Hell) has wanted to bomb some country in the Western Hemisphere as well.

Absolutely! Count support for the drug war in

and we can include the entirety of Central and South America in there as well.

Get your preps together! Learn historic food storage and preservation methods and the science that makes them work now, start saving money and the future

They forgot the invasion of Hong Kong


This was not only insane but shows his ambition to attack even those with virtually no military and no sign of aggression.

There is one more,,,

The United States of America!!!!!!
Or should I say, he has been attacking!

How can he even still be considered relevant after the online

poker incident??


I would be delighted

to see McCain thoroughly discredited and dismissed for the condescending elitist bastard that he is, but for no other reason than the way he treated a true statesman, Ron Paul, in the Presidential debates.

His is the kind of person I simply cannot abide in general, but especially as a politician.

The thing I have realized

The thing I have realized about each politician (with few exceptions) is that each one is owned by a special interest (or 2). McCain must be owned by the military industrial complex conflict of interest. Besides that, he is just one step ahead of Patty Murray (D) in the department of intelligence quotient. He very likely could be the 2nd dumbest in the Senate.

Time to retire a tyrant

This man is obviously been effected by the vietnam war and should be peacefully retired to some nursing home.
He doesn't care about life only death gives him solace.

For our safety of course...
