From Ukraine, Libya, Syria and Egypt yes now John McCain is calling for Ground forces to be send in Syria, Iraq to fight ISIS.

Senator calls for U.S. ground forces in Syria
John McCain: Obama 'Delusional' With ISIS Fight in Syria




McCain has for years called for the United States to take action in Syria, which is embroiled in a three-way civil war pitting the government of President Bashar Assad against ISIS and various groups that McCain and others call more moderate rebels. Not everyone agrees,




Sen. John McCain, Republican chair of the Senate Armed Services Committee, told Fox News that the Obama administration’s “lack of strategy” concerning ISIL will not result in the defeat of the militants who have made considerable battlefield gains in Syria and Iraq. “We have to develop a strategy. And that's going to require United States involvement. Not the same as before, but certainly boots on the ground, forward air controllers, training -- a really robust effort to defeat ISIS,” he said using another acronym for ISIL



If not anyone agrees with the lone nut the MSM is giving is still giving him free air time. And attention at a time while a lot worse things have occurred.

...but John was getting along so well with his ISIS friends just a few years ago.

These celebrity marriages, they never last but it's still so sad to see them separate with such animosity.

Those pictures have been posted on ATS before and to be fair - they were taken before those guys rebranded themselves ISIS.

Back then they were still part of AQI (not that this makes it any better...)

It is generally a mistake to categorize their combat units like we would with regular armed forces though.

*I still don't understand how this isn't enough for a criminal case against McCain, or why this guy is still holding a public office in the US.

It doesn't get away from the fact that McCain along with others was previously singing, no - screaming these 'fighters' praises enough to get the US, the UK and other European nations to send them cash, arms, vehicles, protective armour and more importantly i suppose, the air of complete virtuous legitimacy in the eyes of the world.

And here he is once again trying to rally international support and legitimacy to now eradicate them as the dangerously violent and murderous terrorists they were always known to be....many of us on ATS at the time saw and said as much, myself included.

It's often said the enemy of my enemy is a friend, but obviously if the enemy of your enemy is likely to turn around and start killing more of your other friends than your original enemy ever did, it's a completely stupid move to equip and enable them to do that, which is exactly what our Governments did, encouraged by the likes of talking heads such as McCain.

He's an idiot, more than that, he has contributed by way of his past rhetoric in support of those terrorists, to every one of their victims deaths...what he and others have done is supporting terrorists and is criminal and essentially treasonous.

I agree 100%


I was just pointing out that the Mujahedeen depicted here were actually members of Al Qaeda (in Iraq) at the time the pictures were taken (not ISIS - yet).
Simply for accuracy.

Senator McCain is a person that has always wanted the United States to attack what he perceives as the enemy. It has been his way of thinking since Vietnam. I never agree with the man, but many do. The people of Arizona keep reelecting him.

Fair point. Now think long and hard about what you just said. Key word being "before". Before what? Why would a bunch of radical Islamists pick a name that resonates with the western world more than the eastern? Why do the acronyms insinuate that of a God rumored to be worshipped by those in the west during occult practices?

I am sure it's all just coincidence right? Even though it's different in their native tongue, it certainly can't be lost on you that it translates as such. Couple that with images "prior" to the "rebirth" of said "terrorists" hobnobbing with US politicians.

By contemplating such things it is still easy to come to a conclusion that there isn't something more sinister here until you step back and look at multiple events similar and different on a worldwide and geopolitical scale. Doing that will result in a more clearer understanding because the patterns become clear.

Oh dear, who let that old man out of his rest home again? He keeps emerging to shout at the clouds like Grandpa Simpson and then he gets escorted back in again so that he can have his nap.

Hear what you're saying AngryCymraeg, but to me it wouldn't matter if the guy was 25 or 85...it's his actions rather than his age that bother me.

He is not an idiot. He is saying exactly what the Saudi Arabians wants and manipulating ous so that they can get rid of Assad. If Isis was not a tool for this then ISIS would have been bombed before they entered Syria. The incompetence from US to not being able to kill this people military by bombing them proves that the political aim is another than we are being told.

The house of Saud wants Syria to be controlled by their version of Sunni Islam and to build their gas pipeline thru Syria to Turkey.

You really think John McCain is still relevant to anybody except the retirees in his state of Arizona?

He keeps getting re elected because he makes the old folks happy, as nobody listens to him but for some reason you keep thinking they do...why is that?

Lets see. Only because he tells lies and manipulate do not mean he is unintelligent although I think he is spiritually very unwise. I think of him like the Joseph Goebbels of US. Just because he is a "monster" do not mean he is unintelligent. If he was not intelligent then he would not be as dangerous as he is.



1. "Our economy, I think, is still ― the fundamentals of our economy are strong." ―John McCain, Jacksonville, Fla., Sept. 15, 2008 (Source)


This is propaganda pitch from him. He is trying to sell you this view.



2. "The issue of economics is not something I've understood as well as I should. I've got Greenspan's book." ―McCain, as quoted in the Boston Globe, Dec. 17, 2007 (Source)


A good defense policy to have if all the bank Maffia plans goes badly. He will use the "I did not know and was told false information by others".



7. "I think ― I'll have my staff get to you. It's condominiums where ― I'll have them get to you." ―McCain, after being asked how many houses he and his wife, Cindy, own,


Kinda hard to keep track on what is officially owned for a lying manipulative person. Wise to say we will get back to you with the right information so you do not get in trouble for saying the wrong thing.



10. "I think if you're just talking about income, how about $5 million?" ―McCain, after being asked by Rev. Rick Warren to define "rich," Lake Forest, California, Aug. 16, 2008 (Source)


I am not sure what is the correct definition of rich myself.



11. "Maybe a hundred...That would be fine with me." ―McCain, to a questioner who asked if he supported President Bush's vision for keeping U.S. troops in Iraq for 50 years, Derry, New Hampshire, Jan. 3, 2008 (Source)


Shows what he is after. Do not doubt that this is his plan.



13. "You know that old Beach Boys song, Bomb Iran? Bomb bomb bomb, bomb bomb Iran." ―McCain, breaking into song after being asked at a VFW meeting about whether it was time to send a message to Iran, Murrells Inlet, South Carolina, April 18, 2007 (Source)


Trying to make humor on and make it acceptable to bomb Iran. Repeating it again and again so the people of US will finally allow the war in Iran for the benefit of Oil company and House of Saud.




14. "There was an energy bill on the floor of the Senate loaded down with goodies, billions for the oil companies, and it was sponsored by Bush and Cheney. You know who voted for it? You might never know. That one." ―McCain, pointing to Barack Obama during the second presidential debate, Nashville, Tennessee, Oct. 7, 2008 (Source)


He is a spokes man for the Corporate and Oli interest (including House of Saud) so this is of course in line with his wants.



16. "I was looking at the Sturgis schedule, and noticed that you had a beauty pageant, so I encouraged Cindy to compete. I told her [that] with a little luck, she could be the only woman to serve as both the First Lady and Miss Buffalo Chip." ―McCain, on the annual Miss Buffalo Chip Pageant, which features topless (and occasionally bottomless) contestants, Sturgis, South Dakota, Aug. 4, 2008 (Source)


What do you expect from a corrupted right wing conservative Christian with values from the middle ages?



19. "She's a partner and a soul-mate." ―McCain on Palin, whom he had met only once before selecting her to be his running mate, "FOX News Sunday" interview, Aug. 31, 2008 (Source)


Maybe she is his soul-mate?



20. "At least I don't plaster on the makeup like a trollop, you c*nt." ―McCain, to his wife, Cindy, after she playfully twirled his hair and said "You're getting a little thin up there," as reported in the book The Real McCain by Cliff Schecter (Source)


What do you expect from a corrupted right wing conservative Christian with values from the middle ages?



23. "Honestly, I have to analyze our relationships, situations and priorities, but I can assure you that I will establish closer relationships with our friends, and I will stand up to those who want to harm the United States. ... I have a clear record of working with leaders in the hemisphere that are friends with us and standing up to those who are not. And that's judged on the basis of the importance of our relationship with Latin America and the entire region." ―McCain, after being asked if he would invite Spanish President Jose Rodriguez Louis Zapatero to the White House, casting an ally of the U.S. as a potential enemy while simultaneously confusing Spain for a Latin American country, interview with Radio Caracol Miami, Sept. 17, 2008 (Source)


Divide and conquer.



25. "Across this country this is the agenda I have set before my fellow prisoners. And the same standards of clarity and candor must now be applied to my opponent." ―McCain, Bethlehem, Penn., Oct. 8, 2008 (Source)

This is a good idea only if they fight ISIS and NOT the Syrian regime.

I don’t trust McCain to stick to that

It’s the war in Iraq by the evil does Bush that created this ISIS mess in the first place

The trend that Russia invaded Ukraine came from McCain. Well.
