He is less a war hero than a war monger. By Republican and neo con standards of course, but by no objective humanitarian standards has he taken the fight to the carrot he helped elect as POTUS.
It is stupid to say that “nobody deserves cancer”, cancer is not a consequence of one’s actions. But even amongst cancer patients there are those who are more or less deserving of our sympathy, e.g. those who cannot afford treatment or care. What is McCain’s position on everybody deserving health care?
What McCain and the rest of the war mongers do deserve is a trial by the ICC, and a human punishment.
