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.

Suspend voting this chameleon in!!!
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?
WHEN IS ARIZONA GOING TO THROW THIS IDIOT OUT!!! WHAT A TRAITOR TO FREE PEOPLES!!!
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)
Let me guess: Lindsey Graham thinks they are nice young men.
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.
Hey John - Adolf Hitler was elected, also.
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.
Hey, John! The Viet Cong is calling. They need another spokesperson!
And, John! Was the vote honest in Egypt? It wasn’t here.
Arrogant little man.
McCain is trying to destroy America just like 0bama, they have the same goals.
Please citizens of Arizona, wake up and dump this traitor.
Suspend McCain’s paycheck instead.
Because John McCain is far from the sharpest knife in the drawer!!! Weak POTUS candidate, even weaker Senator!!!! Braindead!!! McCain is now officially an enemy of the state along with traitor, POTUS, Barack (I love the Muslim Brotherhood) Hussein Obama!!!
McCain was no hero.
Just a stupid SOB who got his ass shot down.
Sprained Brain McCain.
Like I said, I don’t believe it anymore.
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.
We should suspend aid to the entire world.
Pray for America to Wake Up
Suspend Juan’s pay....and stuff him in a closet somewhere. The old loon is getting so tiresome and is always wrong.
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.
...and take Lindsey with him.
Please be respectful and change the word “cow” to “pig” to honor his true religion.
Arizona, you really can do better than this.
McCain is becoming a cartoon character. He needs to retire.
And of your insistence upon supplying arms to AQ elements in the confusing & fogbound darker side of Syria?
Anything you care to add?? Senator Dumb@$$...??
We have met the enemy and it is us.
McCain needs to retire. McCain is no statesman.
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.
I wish I had a solution to mccain, but I don’t short of sticking him in a cheap plywood barrel and rolling him over Niagra Falls.
Proposition: McCain is a wholly owned subsidiary of the obama crime family.
Agree or disagree?
McStain needs to sit down, STFU and wipe the drool off his chin.
Note to McCain’s medic: “Revisit his meds....pullese!
He’s absolutely right.
When McCain was running for president I said on FR don’t vote for him. Now saying I told you so.
American Vote to US: Suspend aid to McCain.
I voted for Palin expecting cancer to kill mclame.
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...
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.
