John McCain now thinks...

...the United States should send special forces to rescue the girls kidnapped by Boko Haram in Nigeria:

“If they knew where they were, I certainly would send in U.S. troops to rescue them, in a New York minute I would, without permission of the host country,” McCain told The Daily Beast Tuesday. “I wouldn’t be waiting for some kind of permission from some guy named Goodluck Jonathan,” he added, referring to the president of Nigeria.

Is there anywhere this guy wouldn't send troops?

Let me see; if John McCain were president it would be safe to assume the U. S. would still be at war in Iraq and Afghanistan. That's a layup, right? But it's also not too much of a stretch to think we'd be involved militarily in Libya, Egypt, Syria, Iran and possibly North Korea. And is there any doubt we'd be in some sort of conflict with Russia over Ukraine?

Am I leaving any countries out? It's almost easier to say where the U. S. would not be at war.
