President Barack Obama's so-called 'Reset on Russia' has been declared an abysmal "failure" as stated by the current US envoy to Russia, Michael McFaul. Accordingly, the Moscow Times is calling for Sen. John McCain to be selected as the next US ambassador to Russia, because the US Senator is quoted as telling Russian opposition leaders, "the Arab Spring is coming to a neighborhood near you."
According to the Moscow Times, "OK, outspoken U.S. Senator John McCain might not be the most popular choice for Russians. McCain has repeatedly disparaged President , claiming to have “seen the letters K-G-B” in his eyes in 2007, and warning the Russian leader in a during December 2011 protests in Moscow that “the Arab Spring is coming to a neighborhood near you.” Putin’s response was to suggest publicly that McCain had gone “nuts” following his service in the Vietnam War."
If Obama decides not to select McCain as the next US envoy to Russia, the Moscow Times suggests that Hollywood action star Steven Seagall could jumpstart the 'Reset on Russia' with a bang.
As reported by the Moscow Times, "The sparring suggests that any dialogue between McCain and Putin would likely be less than productive. But McCain has consistently shown a deep knowledge of U.S.-Russian affairs, and his readiness to would give Moscow a predictable partner to work with."
Sen. McCain is currently employed with the Russian media as well. He is a columnist for Pravda.
