Would Senator John McCain instigate hostilities with Russia over the Republic of Georgia?
Recently, McCain issued a statement condemning Russian military action against Georgia as “totally, absolutely unacceptable”.
If elected President of the United States of America today, John McCain’s words and attitude would ratchet the Doom’s Day clock up to its last second. The man seems to gloat on persuing a foreign policy course of managing international hostilities. But can he manage a crisis of his own creation. And, why does his foreign policy mirror the Bush policies?
Is this crisis scenario being staged the same as the Iranian hostage crisis, which was staged on ther brink of the 1980 US elections and caused the defeat of Jimmy Carter in his bid for re-election. Sure, looks fishy to me.
We must beware of “staged international crisis”. The Georgia-Russia War may be one.
Consider these facts:
John McCain's chief foreign policy adviser and his business partner lobbied the senator or his staff on 49 occasions in a 3 1/2-year span while being paid hundreds of thousands of dollars by the government of the former Soviet republic of Georgia. (“McCain adviser got money from Georgia” by Associated Press Writer Pete Yost).
The payments raise ethical questions about the intersection of Randy Scheunemann's personal financial interests and his advice to the Republican presidential candidate who is seizing on Russian aggression in Georgia as a campaign issue.
