Sens. John McCain & Dick Durbin Want U.S. to Send Weapons to Ukrainian Military

Sen. John McCain is itching for another war…He and Obama ally, Sen. Dick Durbin (D-IL), are urging the White House to arm the Ukrainian military.

“They only have a few thousand combat troops and would be overwhelmed by the Russians if it came to that. One of their urgent requests is to have us supply them with weapons,” McCain said, according to the Kyiv Post. “I will be urging our administration to arrange that transfer as quickly as possible.”

Durbin agreed, saying the nation’s small army had been “hollowed out” by the ousted president, Viktor Yanukovych.

“Time and again, they asked us for military help. They need it. I think they should have it. They have to have the wherewithal to defend themselves,” he said.

I don’t think John McCain ever stops to think that a military intervention isn’t always best for the U.S. To every conflict, his response is always the same — war.
