McCain, along with Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham, traveled to Egypt earlier this month at the request of President Barack Obama to implore military leaders to begin holding elections and transition into a democracy.
(CNN) – It’s high time for the United States to cut off its $1.3 billion in aid to Egypt as the military regime cracks down violently on protesters, Sen. John McCain argued Sunday.
The Arizona Republican added the U.S. has lost its credibility in the region after failing to follow its own law that requires suspending aid to states overtaken by a military coup–though the U.S. has not officially described the recent regime change in Egypt as a coup.
"We have no credibility. We do have influence, but when you don't use that influence, then you do not have that influence,” McCain said on CNN’s “State of the Union.” More here:
Hmmmm. He's worried about "having no credibility/influence" in the Arab world. That's a huge problem and mystery, right John?
I have an idea. Why don't you start worrying about your "credibility" right here in the US? Start by leaving us the hell alone and then follow up by leaving Egypt the hell alone. In fact, why don't we all just have a big "leave peeps the hell alone" party.
You want some credibility? Start expanding personal freedom instead of turning us all into slaves to support the implementation of your idiotic ideas and causes.
