. . . and from the files marked "Statements from Mr. Obvious", the geriatric Senator from Arizona weighs in on why Egypt is a bad bad thing while (we
presume) Syria is somehow radically different and we need never think of the two together.
"It was a coup and it was the second time in two and a half years that we have seen the military step in," McCain said on CBS's "Face the Nation."
"Reluctantly I believe that we have to suspend aid until such time as there is a new constitution and a free and fair election,” McCain added.
. . .
“Morsi was a terrible president, their economy is in terrible shape thanks to their policies but the fact is the United States should not be
supporting this coup. And it's a tough call," McCain added.
I guess John figures elections are a national suicide-pact. If things are going very badly and off the rails, his concept of values demands the
legitimate Government be respected and left in place no matter what.
Of course, to some, there are much larger issues than principle. There is politics and money.
The White House is declining to call Morsi’s removal a coup. Using that language could trigger laws which would block the U.S. from sending the
$1.5 billion in annual aid provided to Egypt.
I do believe people in our current Government check polls, political advisers and consider the consequences carefully before so much as saying Good
Morning to the kitchen help. Are statements ever made from meaning and conviction instead of politically chosen wording for maximum impact or lack of
Anyway... I find it ironic how the Military control of Egypt to oust Morsi (a Jihadi at heart) is a baaad thing while supporting Jihadi's (Like Morsi
at heart) to violently overthrow the legitimate Government of Syria is not only okay, but a moral imperative to listen to McCain tell it.
We have some very warped people running this nation with some hopelessly warped definitions or moral and just on any level.
