Venezuela Shuts Down Arab Spring, Where's Sen McCain? Print E-mail
by Tom McGregor    Thu, Feb 13, 2014, 07:04 PM

Sen. John McCain (R.-Az.) loves to say, "The Arab Spring is coming to a neighborhood near you." Yet, he remains strangely silent over the Venezuelan government's crack down on opposition street demonstrators.

The Houston Chronicle reports that, "Members of Venezuela's opposition said Thursday they were bracing for a crackdown after authorities tried to search the offices of a political party and blamed a hard-line leader for inciting violence that led to three deaths during anti-government street protests."

McCain has already traveled the world to spark Arab Spring regime change revolutions. He's visited Syria to hobnob with kidnappers and the Ukraine to inspire Ukrainian Nazis. He has often led violent protests against sovereign governments. However, McCain has yet to rally Arab Springers on the streets of Caracas.

According to the Houston Chronicle, "A day after more than 10,000 people marched against President Nicolas Maduro's 10-month-old government, a swirl of rumors hung over much of Caracas. A group of about 200 students occupied the city's main highway for two hours before re-joining a peaceful protest in the city's wealthy eastern district to demand justice for a 24-year-old anti-government demonstrator who was killed Wednesday with a bullet wound to the head."

Perhaps, Sen McCain is too busy right now, potentially preparing to accept an ambassador's post to Russia or is crafting his column for the Russian newspaper, Pravda.
