“Blessed are the peacemakers, for they shall be called the children of God.”
Maybe it sounds good in the Kings James Bible, but not in America. In a nation at constant war, its politicians and the media worship the warmongers and disdain the peacemakers, “the children of God.”
There’s no clearer evidence than the flood of tears shed and spread across the airwaves over the passing of “Bomb, bomb, bomb, Iran” John McCain.
Oh, the accolades, the adoration, for all that John “I Hate Term Limits” McCain accomplished, sucking off the public tit during his 36 years in the U.S. House of Representatives and Senate.
ENDLESS VOTES FOR WAR
McCain’s credentials as an unblessed hater of peace, lover of mass murder and war are easily documented: From Vietnam, Laos, Cambodia, the U.S. invasion of Grenada, invasion of Panama, the first Iraq War, bombing of Serbia (“We’re in it, and we have to win it… lights out in Belgrade… ‘cream’ the Serbs!”), the Afghan War, the second Iraq War, his advocating military action against North Korea in 2003, wanting U.S. intervention in Iran in 2007 …and even sending his wife Cindy to the nation of Georgia to show his support for the Republic in its war with Russia in 2008.
“We are all Georgians now,” McCain claimed, urging “We the People of the United States” to abandon our national heritage and ethnicities and join his fight against Russia.
Grieving McCain’s death, Georgia’s president, Giorgi Margvelashvili, said, “We mourn him as one of our people in arms. He represented something we idealized about America.”
“People in arms?” Armed to kill. Guns, illegal wars, mass murder is what is “idealized about America.”
Name the war and McCain advocated for it and championed it: Mali, Sudan, Somalia, Nigeria, Yemen, plus support for a list of military coup d’états and repressive dictators across continents.
Indeed, before he died, keeping true to who he was, McCain voted against America ending its involvement in the Saudi-led war against Yemen, which the United Nations says is the worst humanitarian crisis in the world.
Republicans and Democrats in the United States are equal opportunity agitators and initiators of murderous wars. The Yemen War was launched from Washington by the Saudi Ambassador in March 2015, with the approval and support of the Obama Administration.
Clearly not a man of “We the People,” long forgotten was McCain’s 2007 interview on “60 Minutes” when he was running for President against Barack Obama. With mounting public opposition to the Iraq War growing, he was asked, “At what point do you stop doing what you think is right and start doing what the majority of the American people want?”
Unlike Obama, who played to the crowds and lied his way into office as a peace candidate, McCain said, “I disagree with what the majority of the American people want.”
The Wall Street Journal, a solid corporate symbol of America’s Presstitute media, which continuously sells the public “go to war” propaganda, cheered his response as “McCain’s Finest Hour.”
An arrogant narcissist with a reputation extending from military school to the Senate as “McNasty,” he possibly came to some sense of reflection and mortality in his 2018 memoir “The Restless Wave.”
Published a few months before he died, McCain wrote, “The principal reason for invading Iraq, that Saddam had WMD, was wrong. The war, with its cost in lives and treasure and security, can’t be judged as anything other than a mistake, a very serious one, and I have to accept my share of the blame for it.”
Oh, great! McCain, who tirelessly supported an unjustified and illegal war that cost trillions, killed millions, ruined the lives of tens of millions including U.S. troops, destroying an entire nation and escalating the refugee crisis, told the American people who wanted out of Iraq to fuck off… now in his dying days finally accepted his “share of blame for it.”
“Share of blame?” For a man who professes to believe in his religion, tell that to St. Peter at the Pearly Gates. This holds true as well for the masses of psychotic politicians, such as Mike Pence, the God-fearing evangelical warmonger vice president, who proudly trump their religious beliefs.
McCAINIAC: LOVES WAR, HATES PEACE
Picking up from the Iraq War, McCain boldly cultivated Al Qaeda affiliates in Libya and later Syria.
In fact, as a supporter of Barack “Nobel Peace of Crap Prize Winner” Obama’s overthrow of Libya’s Muammar Gaddafi, McCain went there to meet with the Libyan Islamic Fighting Group (LIFG) which, along with other U.S. and NATO supported “freedom fighters,” turned the once richest sovereign nation on the African continent into a devastated economic, societal disaster war zone… making it a gateway for the migrant crisis, which is another critical fact totally ignored by media Presstitutes and killer politicians.
Appearing on France 24 television on March 7, 2011, Gaddafi warned that floods of migrants from Africa and the Middle East would swarm into Europe if his government was overthrown, stating, “There are millions of blacks who could come to the Mediterranean to cross over to France and Italy, and Libya plays a role in security in the Mediterranean.”
Now, seven years later, the “lost security” which we wrote and warned about in the Summer 2011 Trends Journal that was ignored by the Presstitute media has become harsh reality: “It is clearly now undeniable that this country (Libya) finds itself in this situation because someone, in 2011, put their own interests ahead of those of the Libyan people and of Europe itself,” Italian Defense Minister Elisabetta Trenta proclaimed in September.
While Ms. Trenta blamed France as “that someone,” since it was President Nicolas “Slime Ball” Sarkozy who championed the Libyan bloodbath, he also received unconditional support from other members of Murder Inc.
Among them was U.K Prime Minister David “No Cajones” Cameron and U.S. President Barack Obama, who was hesitant at first but persuaded to intervene by Washington’s three witches of Macbeth to use military force to overthrow Qaddafi: “The change became possible, though, only after Mrs. Clinton joined Samantha Power, a senior aide at the National Security Council, and Susan Rice, Mr. Obama’s ambassador to the United Nations, who had been pressing the case for military action,” wrote the New York Times in the lead up to the war.
Following the gruesome death of Gaddafi, who was sodomized with bayonets by the LIFG, which he called “my heroes,” McCain, a man who was tortured when he was a prisoner in Vietnam, happily tweeted: “Qaddafi on his way out, Bashar al-Assad is next.”
As he did in Libya two years earlier, McCain took a trip to Syria in 2013 for a photo-op with radical Islamists to champion the overthrow of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad, the leader of another sovereign nation that did nothing to the United States and posed no military, economic or social threat.
And in 2013, McCain backed a Senate resolution for increased U.S. military operations and “more boots on the ground in Syria” to change the momentum on the battlefield.
Also, left out of the warmonger context since his passing was McCain’s 2013 trip to Kiev, Ukraine. He met with the fascist Social-National Party (now Svoboda), to help orchestrate the overthrow of the democratically elected government, which refused a European Union/International Monetary Fund bailout, instead going for a better Russian deal.
Standing on the stage at Kiev’s Maidan Square next to Oleh Tyahnybok, leader of the Neo-Nazi group who was filmed making the Nazi salute, McCain proclaimed to the cheering crowd, “Ukraine will make Europe better, and Europe will make Ukraine better.”
Now, five years later and by all measurements deeply in debt and in civil war, contrary to McCain’s proclamation, Ukraine didn’t make Europe better and Europe didn’t make Ukraine better.
Despite his hate for Russia, which he blamed for the unrest in Ukraine, and Russia’s, “…relentless, indiscriminate bombing campaigns that slaughtered countless civilians in Syria,” it was mad bomber McCain, an active partner in genocide, whose plane was shot down during Operation Rolling Thunder in Vietnam, who was responsible for untold death and mass destruction during that war.

Several years from now, if not sooner, few will know what a John McCain was, and those who remember won’t care.
Only narcissists are obsessed about the legacy they leave for others to remember. When you’re dead, you’re gone. When you’re dead, who gives a shit what others thought of you?
As for me, Hell is taking that last breath and knowing I was not the person I said I was or could have been. I will die knowing I did everything I could to Occupy Peace.
