Today, Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) begins his Wall Street Journal op-ed titled “We Are All Georgians” with a warning about the seriousness of the recent conflict between Georgia and Russia:
For anyone who thought that stark international aggression was a thing of the past, the last week must have come as a startling wake-up call.
Perhaps McCain is giving himself a wake-up call, since just yesterday he seemed to have thought that “stark international aggression was a thing of the past.” In a press conference with reporters, he said, “In the 21st century, nations don’t invade other nations.” Watch it:
McCain has spent the past few days blaming Russia for the conflict in the region. As the Jed Report points out, however, McCain is now backtracking and saying that he “will decide in subsequent days…who was right and who was wrong.”
