McCain has illegally crossed into Syria before, visiting Islamist rebels in northern Syria during the third year of this conflict.

Known as a war hawk in congress, McCain has repeatedly called for the U.S. to directly intervene in Syria on behalf of the Islamist rebels fighting the Syrian Government.

Unfortunately it may still be many years away, as his mother Roberta, is still alive and she just turned 105. He’s got super longevity from his mother’s side of the family it seems.

That warmonger terrorist McCain loves deah and destruction as all terrorists love it. It needs the same fate of all terrorists in this world:-to stop their terrorism, jail or buried.

I support Kurds.I want them 2 have US support. But I do not trust McCain. 1st bc he’s acting independently which is inappropriate. 2nd bc he’s working in opposition to Pres Trump in US. McCain lost power in US so he’s trying2 forge new. Remember he just left Turkey, praising them. He needs2 get on Trump train or retire.

If Kurds realized they were fighting the enemy McCain helped created, perhaps they would have put a bullet in the old snake’s head, and done the world a huge favor.
