Sens. John McCain, Dick Durbin Urge the White House to Arm Ukrainian Military

Sen. John McCain is itching for another war…He and Sen. Dick Durbin (D-IL) are urging the White House to arm the Ukrainian military.

“They only have a few thousand combat troops and would be overwhelmed by the Russians if it came to that. One of their urgent requests is to have us supply them with weapons,” McCain said, according to the Kyiv Post. “I will be urging our administration to arrange that transfer as quickly as possible.”

Durbin agreed, saying the nation’s small army had been “hollowed out” by the ousted president, Viktor Yanukovych.

“Time and again, they asked us for military help. They need it. I think they should have it. They have to have the wherewithal to defend themselves,” he said.
