Senator John McCain, former traitor and heir to the McCain french fry empire, today introduced a proposal for SHIT in the Senate.
That's the "Stop Hezbollah and Iran Terror" act, in case you were wondering.
McCain has got his undies in a knot because he resents the fact that Iran and Hezbollah are making inroads on America's hegemonic control of the international terror business.
They're not, actually. American hegemony over international terror is uncontested and undisturbed.
However, McCain is showing symptoms of the paranoia that accompanies great hegemonic empires at every juncture of history.
Hezbollah has been on the SHIT list ever since they successfully harassed the Israeli invaders out of southern Lebanon. That is a non-starter for the McCain crowd of neo-lib/neo-con war-mongers.
As most sentient beings are aware, Israel is the USA's number one proxy... or maybe it's the other way around...
Either way, a black eye for Israel is a black eye for America and vice versa.
In any case, such a bald attack on the hegemon cannot be allowed to go unchallenged, and no one has challenged it more consistently or loudly than the good Senator.
Unfortunately, the folks who actually have their hands on the levers of power and the big red button have been deaf to the Senator's pleas. Even the recent labeling of Hezbollah's imaginary "militant" wing as "terrorists" by the EU has not stopped Hezbollah from being treated as an integral part of the fabric of Lebanese society.
This could be due to the fact that Hezbollah is in fact an integral part of the fabric of Lebanese society, and the only part of that fabric willing to stand against the invaders, something that all Lebanese, no matter how reluctant they may be to admit in public, are eternally grateful for.
As for Iran and their internationally renowned retarded nuclear scientists, well, the world has grown beyond tired of waiting for them to cross Bibi's red line, which he so boldly sold to the world at the UN last year by drawing a red line.

So McCain is, as they say, barking up the wrong tree.
He can propose all the SHIT he wants, but if the plague of international terror is to be rooted out, the uprooting will need to be done not in Lebanon, not in Iran, but in Washington.
