John McCain: Arm Syrian Rebels With Equipment To Shoot Down Russian Planes

McCain Says Russian Airstrikes Are 'Disgraceful'

John Mccain

In response to Russia’s announcement that it had begun launching air strikes against ISIS in Syria, Senator John McCain called on the White House to arm Syrian rebels with weapons to shoot down Russian planes.

Infowars reports:

McCain initially responded to Fox News host Neil Cavuto’s question about whether he would shoot down Russian planes by saying no, but then went on to assert that he would arm Syrian rebels to carry out that very same task.

“I might do what we did in Afghanistan many years ago, to give those guys the ability to shoot down those planes, that equipment is available,” said McCain, adding that the Free Syrian Army would shoot down the planes, “just like the Afghans shot down Russian planes after Russia invaded Afghanistan.”

McCain is referring to how the United States armed Islamic militants in the 1970s, a policy that led to the rise of the Taliban, Al Qaeda, the Muslim Brotherhood and Osama Bin Laden.

Senator McCain is opposed to Russia’s bombing of ISIS terrorists because he believes that Moscow is using this explanation as a cover to attack US-backed Syrian rebel forces who are trying to topple Bashar Al-Assad.

Although the rebels have fought against ISIS, there are numerous accounts of the FSA and other jihadist groups handing over their weapons to Al-Qaeda affiliates and in some cases defecting outright to join ISIS. The FSA has also been accused of a number of war crimes, some of which are on a par with ISIS.

McCain also made reference to claims that the Russian air strikes had claimed civilian lives, although Moscow vehemently denies this, with spokesperson for the Russian Defense Ministry Igor Konashenkov asserting, “Russian jets did not use weapons on civilian infrastructure or in its vicinity.”

Russian Maria Zakharova, Foreign Ministry spokeswoman also claimed that western media outlets were circulating fake pictures of dead civilians in order to impugn Moscow.

    Funny how those weapons would be shooting down coalition aircraft as well, not to mention airliners as he wants to arm the free Syria army which is an Al Queada group. Fuc*ing McMoron.

    The US should send john mccain over to Syria and enlist him as general of isis military forces. It’s where he belongs. john mccain preaches killing every time he speaks. He is probably not even human. This creature wasn’t elected. He was placed there. US elections are fake. Kind of like the news on tv, and radio, opinion polls etc…Do you really think you are free? Think about it.

I talk about countless innocent people being killed by these “humanitarian saints” ??? turn on people… turn on your brains… it can’t be simpler than that,,,
