Dem Rep.: If McCain Were In Charge ‘We’d Be in 7 Different Wars’

Democratic Representative Tim Ryan (D-OH) told a local news station this weekend that if Senator John McCain (R-AZ) had his way the U.S. would be fighting everybody.

Via BuzzFeed’s Andrew Kaczynski, Ryan specifically worried that McCain would use ISIS as an excuse to propel the U.S. into gratuitous military operations.

“Right now I think mostly [ISIS’ threat] is regional in nature,” he said. “What I don’t want is people to start making this a bigger threat than it is to the United States, so that the John McCains of the world and the people who want to send more troops — if John McCain were in charge we’d be in seven different wars right now across the world. I don’t want people like that using that as an excuse so they can drum up more troops to be sent over.”
