John McCain: Britain ‘no longer a world power’ for voting against bombing Syria

mcsnarlAccording to John “McRINO” McCain, the alleged Republican Senator from Arizona, Great Britain is no longer a world power because Parliament voted against bombing Syria.  McCain made the statement on Friday’s edition of NBC’s “Tonight Show.”

“I feel badly about the British,” he said.  “They’re our dear friends, but they’re no longer a world power. It’s just a fact of life.”

Newsbusters’ Noel Sheppard posted a transcript of McCain’s comments:

JAY LENO: Why would the U.N. not say, “You know, Senator McCain, that’s a good idea. Why don’t we go bomb the runway?” Why doesn’t the U.N, no soldiers involved. Nobody is being killed. You’re just blowing up land. Why doesn’t the U.N. go for this?SENATOR JOHN MCCAIN (R-ARIZONA): The U.N. has turned into an organization tha, in my estimation in many ways is a waste of taxpayers’ dollars. Right now, the U.N. is in there ascertaining whether this was a chemical attack. And I think it’s fairly obvious, since you see these bodies stacked up with not a a mark on them, and the head of the United Nations has said, “But, we won’t apportion blame.” What? You’re not going to say who is responsible for it? That’s your tax dollars at work.

LENO: Why won’t they say?

MCCAIN: Because they want to be neutral. They want to be neutral about everything. And I feel badly about the British. They’re our dear friends, but they’re no longer a world power. It’s just a fact of life.
