The Washington Post in the USA writes about this photo, made while the United States Senate discussed whether or not there would be a United States war on Syria, which might well escalate into a catastrophic wider war:
Republican Senator John McCain is not interested in hearing arguments for, and especially not against, war on Syria. He has already said that even the administration’s war plans are not war-like enough, as he wants an official still bloodier war for regime change. Comedian Will Rogers famously said that he never met anyone he did not like. John McCain never met a war he did not like. Including the bloody war for regime change in Libya; when McCain flip-flopped from Gaddafi buddy to buddy of Gaddafi’s al-Qaedaish enemies.
