Banner which was borne by John McCain


The person who could become the most Russophobic U.S. President has died. Reaction in the neighboring countries on the death of John McCain is predictable: Poroshenko called senator "the great friend of Ukraine", and in Tbilisi as if having forgotten about claims to Saakashvili, have named his American boss "the national hero of Georgia". But in the USA McCain had a reputation nearly for the dissident. On the 82nd year of life republican senator from the State of Arizona, till the last moment – the head of the senatorial commission on armed forces, the captain of the 1st rank of US Navies in resignation John McCain has died. About what role on Capitol Hill was played by this veteran of Vietnam and the old fighter against "the Soviet threat", the simple fact demonstrates – in honor of the dead have suggested to call one of Senate buildings at once. The last months of life of one of the most known (or, perhaps, notorious) politicians of the modern United States were "the chronicle of the announced death". Still last summer the brain tumor has been diagnosed for McCain, and then already doctors recognized – most likely, inoperable. As the VZGLYaD newspaper noted, this personal tragedy became a political event at once: the camp of supporters of limit toughening of the anti-Russian sanctions has weakened. In May McCain quietly spoke about the death as about quite possible event, at the end of the last week has officially refused further treatment.
If could find an embodiment of "the American militarism", McCain fitted into this cliche almost ideally. At least, it seems so at first sight. John Sidney McCain the Third was born in the military camp on nowadays nonexistent base of Naval Forces of Koko-Solo in the zone of the Panama Canal which was under the American occupation till 1979. The father and the grandfather (respectively John McCain and John McCain of II), have served to four-star admirals. McCain grandfather, to all other – the founder of aircraft carrier strategy of the USA which we can observe in the Persian Gulf also now, at coast of Korea. When the businessman's son Donald Trump chose between film school and business courses, being afraid "to ring out" to Vietnam, the admiral's son, the graduate of Naval academy and the pilot of deck aircraft of the Forrestol aircraft carrier John McCain already carried out a task "to vbombit Vietnamese in the Stone Age" (according to the general Curtice Lemey ordering strategic aircraft). On October 26, 1967 there was what has finally created (or deformed) the identity of future senator and the candidate for president. McCain's plane flying to bomb power plant in Hanoi, has been brought down by the Soviet anti-aircraft missile S-75. Further it is well-known: five years in the North Vietnamese prison (where the son of the commander-in-chief of the Pacific fleet of the USA was tortured, most likely), refusal to meet delegation of hippie pacifists, exchange of prisoners after the actual loss by Americans of war, historical handshake with Nixon and transition to the political field of fight. This part of his career fully started at Ronald Reagan, at the time of the last paroxysm of Cold War – that too is important. It is even more symbolical that
