MOSCOW, September 19 (Itar-Tass) - Senator John McCain’s article on Pravda.ru internet portal is unlikely to evoke a wide response in the world, Dr. Alexei Pushkov, the head of the State Duma’s committee for international affairs said Thursday commenting McCain’s article to Itar-Tass.
“The article does not include answers to Putin’s article published in The New York Times,” Alexei Pushkov said. “It is not even a commentary. In my opinion, it is far from convincing anyone and far from sparking off an 'orange revolution'. We have heard it many a time from lots of Western politicians, journalists and public figures, and so I do not think the article will evoke a wide international response unlike President (Vladimir) Putin’s article.”
McCain says nothing why the U.S. is strongly regarded in the world as a state that regularly uses military force in the international arena and is permanently meddling with other countries’ internal affairs, according to Pushkov.
“The U.S. has initiated four wars over the past 14 years and it was just ready to unleash the fifth,” he said. “And it happens regardless of the personality of the United States’ president and the line of the party in power in the White House.”
“I strongly feel many would like to get know why it is so and what pushes the U.S. into new and new wars,” Pushkov asked rhetorically. “However, McCain does not say a word on the issue.”
Besides, McCain remains silent on the so-called American superiority that makes up the basis for the U.S. official ideology and logically arouses puzzling questions all over the world.
“Senator McCain was unwilling to give answers to all these important questions set forth in Putin’s article -- quite possibly, he has nothing to say in response,” the MP concluded.
