McCain: Suspend aid to Egyptian military
The Hill ^ | July 6, 2013 | Daniel Strauss

Posted on 07/06/2013 8:44:33 AM PDT by maggief

Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) called on the United States to suspend aid to the Egyptian military as the country grapples with clashes between supporters and opponents of ousted President Mohammed Morsi.

"We have to suspend aid to Egyptian military because the military has overturned the vote of the people," McCain said Friday according to Al Jazeera. "We cannot repeat the same mistakes that we made in other times of our history by supporting removal of freely elected governments."

McCain said that Washington should demand the Egyptian arm set a timetable for elections and for making a new constitution, the network said.

“And then we should evaluate whether to continue with aid or not,” he said.

Ahh, yes, the world would have been so much different with John McCain as president instead of Obama... Has Romney come out as well in support of undercutting the Egyptian army too?

I understand why Obama is defending his buddies in the Muslim Brotherhood.

But why is McCain?

Those aren’t my people, those military generals. My leg only tingles with a good MB beheading and running guns to fanatic zealots who will use them against us and our allies. (What he really means)

That’s just what his North Vietnamese torturers would want.McCain is what he is today because his Commie captors broke him mentally...spiritually...psychologically.He’s a sad,sad,*sad* casualty of war....just as certainly as if he had lost all his limbs.

I’m still sure he was damaged in the head in that prison camp. Even if Sarah Palin were to tell me he was a hero, I wouldn’t believe it now.

And, John! Was the vote honest in Egypt? It wasn’t here.

He ought to buy a turban for himself, a burka for Cindy, have Megin circumcised without an anesthetic, and declare Obama the True Mahdi. Then he could go out and perform the greatest sacrament of his new religion by flying a crowded airplane into an office building.

I wouldn’t classify him as a hero. But it has been reported that he was offered repatriation because he was the son of an Admiral. He chose to decline and remain with the other prisoners. It isn’t ‘hero’ stuff in the conventional sense but it did show loyalty and determination.

That said, it is likely his ingrained stubborn temper that drove him to that, and his years since have just shown, me anyway, that he is just completely crazy.

McCain is at it again! He apparently regrets the Ikhwan being thrown out, because they were "freely elected."

McCain: Suspend aid to Egyptian military

Brilliant!

Why didn't you think of that a year and half ago?

We do not have the best and brightest as leaders in this country. Mostly what we have leading us are the corrupt and contemptuous.

Washington needs an enema.

Proposition: McCain is a wholly owned subsidiary of the obama crime family.

Agree or disagree?

Though, I despise McCain almost as much as Obama...

I think McCain is playing a little game here to put pressure on the Egyptian Military to move quickly to have free election and relinquish temporary military rule...

because the military has overturned the vote of the people," McCain said

33 Million people out of a total population of 80 Million turned out to oppose Morsi over four or five very hot days and nights.

A few hundred, few thousand at most, turned out to support Morsi.

That's a vote of the people, McQueeg.
