Inciting Ukraine Against Russia



A video has surfaced online in which warmongers Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) and Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) are caught meeting with the Ukraine military, encouraging them to launch an offensive against Russia and restart hostilities, all the while describing Russia as the “aggressor” that must “pay a heavier price.”

Sen. Graham says, “Your fight is our fight, 2017 will be the year of offense. All of us will go back to Washington and we will push the case against Russia. Enough of a Russian aggression. It is time for them to pay a heavier price.“

John McCain was no less provocative: “I believe you will win. I am convinced you will win and we will do everything we can to provide you with what you need to win.”

(Graham begins speaking at 1:10 in the video and McCain follows)

Just to prove that this was a bi-partisan trip notice that Sen. Amy Klobuchar (D-MN), a so-called 'liberal', was along on the trip (in yellow coat).

Yeah - great idea - let's start a real war with Russia - it should be easier than Iraq or Afghanistan has been!
