McCain: ‘Hell to pay’ if Russian separatists shot down Malaysian plane

By Mario Trujillo - 07/17/14 12:47 PM EDT

Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) said there would be "hell to pay" if Russia or Russian separatists were involved in the disappearance of a Malaysian airplane over eastern Ukraine.

McCain said the incident had the markings of someone mistaking the Malaysian airline with a Ukrainian military plane.

"It has the earmarks of a tragic mistake made by someone who had the capability to shoot down an aircraft," he said. "And we know at least from the last few couple of weeks that could be Russian or separatist Russian capability. If that is true, this is really, really something that commands our attention to bring this kind of thing to a halt."

If Russia or Russian separatists were involved in the incident, McCain said, "I think there is going to be hell to pay and should be."

Still, McCain said people should not yet leap to conclusions, predicting that answers would come in the next few hours.

"To leap to conclusions could be very embarrassing and really inappropriate until we have more information," McCain said on MSNBC. "But there have been, as you mentioned, previous instances of shoot down of Ukrainian aircraft."

"It has the earmarks — and I'm not concluding — but it has the earmarks of a mistaken identification of a aircraft that they may have believed was Ukrainian,” he said. "If that is true, this is a horrible — if it is true — it is a horrible tragedy."

A number of news agencies have reported that the Boeing 777 carrying nearly 300 people was shot down in Eastern Ukraine. Ukraine's President Petro Poroshenko told The Associated Press that his country's military did not shoot down any "airborne targets."

Obama isn't going to jack dookie about anything.  What military does McLame propose Obama use?  Certainly not the one he and his fellow members of the politburo, nee congress, have allowed Obama to decimate.

McCain once again forgetting who's President, and who has their finger on the "hell to be paid" button.  But we all know Obama well enough by now to know this will have its three days in the news, and poof! on to something else.

McLame must be up for re-election this year.  He's trying to convince the people of Arizona that he is tough on all these illegals passing through their property.
