Johnny McCain

Suponete. Te toca ser senador de los EEUU en estos momentos. Sos republicano. Vas al Senado porque una serie de informantes está vendiendo fruta podrida sobre las armas químicas en Siria. Todo armado para una guerrita breve que promete ser redituable, política y económicamente. Estás del lado de los que quieren reventar Siria a toda costa. Claro, nunca falta un buey corneta cuando un pobre republicano se divierte. Ya salieron los agoreros, esos que dicen que estamos a las puertas de la Tercera Guerra Mundial. Que los rusos tienen ferretería gruesa. Que los chinos van a enojarse. Que Irán va a los bifes. Que Hezbolláh se está movilizando. Que el Mediterráneo se convierte en un cenicero a corto plazo. En fin, el ambiente está tensionado. Vos, senador del Imperio en su hora más peligrosa, sentadito en tu banca, ¿qué hacés?

Agarrás el iPhone y te ponés a jugar al póker. ¡Obvio, tonti!

Título: “McCain caught playing poker during Syria hearing”

Subtítulo: US Senator John McCain has been caught playing poker on his iPhone during a Senate hearing on the White House’s strike plan against Syria.

Texto: "The Washington Post (WaPo) posted evidence of McCain’s fooling around during the Tuesday's Senate Foreign Relations Committee hearing.

The picture, which was shot by photographer Melina Mara, showed the Arizona Republican’s hands and his iPhone.

Shortly afterward, McCain posted a sarcastic tweet on his Twitter account that began with the word, "Scandal!"

McCain, a longtime advocate of forceful military intervention in Syria, has signaled that he supports President Barack Obama's plan for military action against Syria. He has said it would be "catastrophic" if a vote in Congress fails to pass.

Top administration officials were testifying on launching an offensive against the Arab country on Tuesday.

Washington has accused the Syrian government of attacking foreign-backed militants stationed near Damascus with chemical weapons. Syria has categorically rejected the accusation, arguing that the US is using allegation as a pretext to attack the country."
