The McCain-Putin Chapter of Mice and Men
21.09.2013 18:37

Senator John McCain's insolent and arrogant rant in Pravda.Ru in response to President Vladimir Putin's balanced and measured communication to the people of the United States of America was as disappointing as it was predictable, underlining the danger lying beneath the surface of the corporate elitists who run Washington's policies.

When I read President Vladimir Putin's "Plea for Caution" in The New York Times, I saw a diplomatic, reasonable, polite and diligent appeal from a seasoned world figure, with as much gravitas as he has kudos, making an approach to build bridges at a sensitive time in world history, poised as we were on a precipice, the fruit of Washington's intrusive foreign policy today based upon supporting terrorists overseas, as proxies to implement the USA's hegemonic strategy.

John McCain was given the opportunity and the space to reply in Pravda.Ru. Instead of writing a mature, well-thought-out and positive reply, addressing the wider issue and speaking like a Statesman with a capital S on the world stage, John McCain gave us a telling glimpse into what lies beneath the crust of the political Establishment in the USA. He was given the chance to reply like a Man, he chose the microscopic viewpoint of a mouse. #
