Had the US its relations deteriorated with either Serbia, Iraq, Afghanistan, Iran, Libya, Syria, North Korea or even Russia, the Senator provided a one-size-fits-all recipe - to escalate confrontation up to a military intrusion. 'Bomb, invade and occupy, and if that doesn't work, bomb, invade and occupy some more,' as Bandow describes strategy of McCain.
