This is a map from 2013 of the many countries where Senator John McCain had called for US military intervention:
- Syria
- Iraq
- Afghanistan
- Libya
- Kosovo
- Nigeria
- Bosnia
- North Korea
- Iran
- Russia
- Sudan
- Mali
- China

Needless to say millions of innocent human beings have perished as a direct result of all the evil Yankee military "interventions".

I sincerely believe that the majority of Americans DO NOT WANT to bring such unimaginable atrocities and sufferings to the innocent civilians of the countries listed above....

WHY OH WHY would the American (no doubt "perfect" in McCain's eyes) democratic system allow its political leaders to GO AGAINST THE WISHES OF THE MAJORITY and commit such crimes against humanity?

America's system isn't really democratic to begin with.
Every four years they're given a choice between two candidates (sometimes a third party
candidate who cannot possibly win).
Both candidates have been vetted and groomed by the Oligarch of America and are assured
to be pro-imperialistic and to use the military to intervene in other countries of the oligarchs choosing.

The last president to defy these orders was assassinated.
JFK wanted to wind down the USA involvement in Vietnam. The oligarchs didn't want this.
Since then the Oligarchs of America have been more cautious and thorough in their
vetting and grooming of the figurehead of the USA, which is the office of the president.
If capitalism promotes innovation and creativity then why aren't scientists and artists the richest people in a capitalist nation?

Another terrorist bit the dust.

And what is more pathetic the US media report the world will miss Mc Cain, very few people out side of the US know who he was.
Human lives mean nothing when the western warmongers see a bigger gain through war

While I did not agree with all these US military interventions, each situation and the American goals were different. They are not all the same. For example, Bosnia and Kosovo were to protect non-Serbs from Serb nationalists. Nigeria and Mali were to help governments fight terrorists. Libya was a (half-hearted) attempt to limit the number of people Gaddafi could kill. Afghanistan, Syria and Iraq were (failed) attempts to stabilize the Arab world. The US did not send any forces to Sudan. McCain never advocated any US forces in either Russia or China. I do not think McCain ever advocated an invasion of North Korea or Iran; but he did advocate a bombardment response to the use of strategic weapons by them. There are many US interventions you failed to mention (Lebanon, Panama, Dominican Republic, Haiti, Grenada, Vietnam, the 1950 Korean War, and Somalia are among them). Each was a different case.
My problem is simple: I just know better than everyone-else!
