Is McCain hijacking Trump’s foreign policy?
Posted by Martin C. Fox on March 16, 2017
From our longest war, Afghanistan, comes word from U.S. Gen. John Nicholson that we and our Afghan allies are in a “stalemate” with the Taliban, and he will need a “few thousand” more U.S. troops – to augment the 8,500 President Obama left behind when he left office.
Committing the US to go to war over Montenegro? McCain needs to declare victory and retire.
Historically, the Balkans have been an incubator of war. In the 19th century, Otto van Bismarck predicted that when the Great War came, it would come out of “some damn fool thing in the Balkans.” And so it did when the Austrian archduke was assassinated in Sarajevo June 28, 1914, by Serbian ethnonationalist Gavrilo Princip.
Why are we fighting the Taliban? They never attacked US. We attacked them. The result of Bush’s fake news back in 2002.
It’s time for your nap Senator McCain.
Be seeing you
