During the Vietnam war, McCain had been captured by the North Vietnamese Army after being shot down on his way to bomb a civilian lightbulb factory. He spent two years in solitary confinement and underwent torture that left him with crippling injuries.

There were few figures in recent American life who dedicated themselves so personally to the perpetuation of war and empire as McCain.
McCain did not simply thunder for every major intervention of the post-Cold War era from the Senate floor, while pushing for sanctions and assorted campaigns of subterfuge on the side.

None of this apparently mattered to McCain. When he completed his remarks, the fighters belted out a World War II-era salute made famous by Ukrainian Nazi collaborators: Ukraine is now the sick man of Europe, a perpetual aid case bogged down in an endless war in its east.
By any objective standard, it was McCain who had palled around with terrorists, and who wrested as much resources as he could from the American taxpayer to maximize their mayhem.McCain did not simply thunder for every major intervention of the post-Cold War era from the Senate floor, while pushing for sanctions and assorted campaigns of subterfuge on the side.
