RT Russia Today: The Real McCain: “Call to Strike Syria ASAP Exposes Neo-Con Mindset”


Who needs diplomacy, or international law? Not former presidential candidate (R-AZ) John McCain, who became the first senator to publicly call for a US-led military strike on Syria in order to halt the nearly year-long conflict there. Taking the Senate floor, McCain said there will be no UN mandate for the air strikes he deems the only way to stop the violence — but that a mandate isn’t necessary.

Jacob Hornberger, founder and president of the Future of Freedom Foundation talks to RT. He claims McCain’s idea is a typical neo-con conservative mindset of foreign intervention which implies a regime-change operation aimed at ousting one dictator in order to install another, US-approved dictator.
