Some people bring happiness by coming, others by leaving, permanently. John McCain falls in the latter category. Throughout his adult life, he brought death and destruction to “others.” There was no American war he did not like. In May 2013, he entered Syria illegally to organize terrorist leaders to slaughter the innocent. His plan was to overthrow President al-Asad. McCain is dead; al-Asad is still in power. McCain’s terrorists have been routed in Syria.
In the 1960s, he was a bomber pilot who reveled in killing innocent Vietnamese from the relative safety of his cockpit. This mass murderer slaughtered innocent children. When his plane was finally shot down, he became a POW. Despite his crimes, his Vietnamese captors treated him and nursed him to health, a far cry from McCain’s staunch support for torture of America’s prisoners the vast majority of whom are totally innocent.
This gangster clung to life even as worms ate his stinking brain. May the Almighty punish him for his crimes. As an American I reject the contrived eulogies for this war criminal.
