Finally, something I can agree with Kshama Sawant on.
Less than 24 hours after John McCain's death, Sawant took to Twitter to make a very sound point.
A politician’s legacy is a political not personal question. An enthusiastic supporter of every imperialist war while in office, John McCain shares responsibility for hundreds of thousands of deaths. To whitewash that is to disrespect those who died [at the hands of the American military and its allies] in Iraq, Afghanistan, elsewhere.-RW
