McCain to Trump: Don’t You Dare Make Peace with Russia!

John McCain


By Daniel McAdams  / The Ron Paul Institute for Peace and Prosperity  /

Sit down. This is going to shock you. (Not). We reported yesterday on the telephone call between US president-elect Trump and Russian president Putin, where the current and future presidents discussed the need to set aside differences and look to more constructive future relations. With serious observers of this past year’s increasing tensions between US and Russia openly worrying about a nuclear war breaking out, with some 300,000 NATO troops placed on Russia’s border, with sanctions hurting average businesspersons on both sides, a normal person might look at the slight thaw in Cold War 2.0 as an early positive indicator of the end of the Obama Era.

Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) begs to differ.

In a blistering statement he released today responding to the Trump/Putin telephone call, Sen. McCain condemned any efforts by President-elect Trump to find common ground with Putin.

Any claim by Putin that he wants to improve relations with the US must be vigorously opposed, writes McCain. He explains:

We should place as much faith in such statements as any other made by a former KGB agent who has plunged his country into tyranny, murdered his political opponents, invaded his neighbors, threatened America’s allies, and attempted to undermine America’s elections.

Interesting that Republican McCain has taken to using the Hillary Clinton campaign line (the one that lost her the election) that somehow the Russians were manipulating the US electoral process. The claim was never backed up by facts and Hillary’s claim that some 17 US intelligence agencies agreed with her was shown to be a dangerous and foolish lie.

Why is Putin not to be trusted, according to McCain?

Vladimir Putin has rejoined Bashar Assad in his barbaric war against the Syrian people with the resumption of large-scale Russian air and missile strikes in Idlib and Homs. Another brutal assault on the city of Aleppo could soon follow.

What McCain doesn’t say is that unlike US troops in Syria, the Russians are invited by the Syrian government and operate according to international law. Oh yes, and they are also fighting al-Qaeda and ISIS, which has sought to overthrow Assad for the past five years.

Maybe McCain is just really sensitive after meeting with al-Qaeda and ISIS in Syria?

As rumors swirl from Washington about neocons sniffing out top jobs in the incoming administration, it would serve president-elect Trump well to reflect on he true nature of the neocon beast…

    Who the hell do you think you are dealing with? And HOW DARE YOU Hillary is history -

    McCain did not win the election in Arizona. He is hated by Trump supporter who booed him at Trump rallies. He was selected by the elite to win but with secret ballots they can steal it every time for war criminals like John.

    All I can say is Trump will drain the swamp, and without a doubt I can hopefully say just who to be drained, will be.

  • Busta Myth

    You miss the obvious

    Just because a few Western / Muslim / Jewish leaders decided that “ASSAD MUST GO!” …collectively you (the West, Saudis, Qataris etc, AND PUTIN have KILLED MANY MANY MORE INNOCENT PEOPLE than Assad ever did so you are NOT “Saving” People

    And its more like Forced Mass Migration by Carpet Bombing

    This is the same old pattern that happens pretty much EVERYWHERE, in the name of “Saving them”, you ALL end up killing many many times more people

    YOU ARE ALL LYING HYPOCRITS, the Western leaders, the Saudis etc and Russia (Although Russia is the only country that was INVITED to be in Syria by Assad)

    oh and yeah, I suppose the Pipeline from Qatar through Syria to Europe has nothing to do with it either eh?

    NONE of you (including Russia) could tell the TRUTH, because you are ALL LIARS :twisted:

    What are you afraid of McCain, that your master Lucifer’s plan he gave to Albert Pike for 3 World Wars, will come to NOTHING? Appears so. One day you may realize that the only way you have power is by a LIE. Without a LIE, you are NOTHING. Satan has no power but through a lie. When Jesus light shines, that lie will be destroyed forever.

    Really! That’s the McCain story? Why not do this? According to Open Secrets website. McCain’s donors are defense contractors, mega banks, hedge funds, and chemical companies. Gosh why would he want a cold war? Maybe because someone is paying him to vote for one.

    McCain is a warmongering Neocon Traitor who should have faced the firing squad after he was released from the Hanoi Hilton.
