Boot: McCain’s ‘bellicose aura’ is a boon for peace.

Writing in the Los Angeles Times today, Council on Foreign Relations Senior Fellow Max Boot, who is “an unpaid foreign policy advisor” to Sen. John McCain (R-AZ), claims that McCain’s bellicose aura will help America “to achieve more” of its “objectives peacefully” because he would frighten other countries:

Ironically, John McCain’s bellicose aura could allow us to achieve more of our objectives peacefully because other countries would be more afraid to mess with him than with most other potential occupants of the Oval Office — or the current one.
